When dealing with the enclosed under belly keep two things in mind:

1) The enclosure provides insulation against cold and heat penetration to your floor as well as the tanks. For those of us with the "artic" package, we can cold camp to 15 degrees or near zero, dependent upon RV age & package, without freezing up our holding tanks. It definately cuts down on the propane bill.

2) It also increases aero when towing. I had one saleman claim 4-5 years ago it would add 1 MPG. I have seen nothing to officially support this but common sense sez there is some truth in the argument.

If I ever have a problem that requires access to repair, I personally would go slow and methodically and do whatever it takes restore to @least factory delivery standard.

I had contacted the dealer where I purchased my Jay Feather Ultralite 242 and they wanted to charge me $506.50. That was just for labor since I had already purchased the Tornado online for considerably cheaper amount then what Camping World was selling it for. That was including my Good Sams club discount. I'm currently unscrewing my underbelly myself... cant see paying $119/hr for labor.

Opening the underbelly

I did mine 2 weekends ago. Very easy. What model were you looking to do the install on. Mine was a 29bhs. Removed driver side rear jack and the screws to drop enough of the underbelly (about 10 screws).

After dropping the underbelly and seeing how shallow my BW tank was, I decided this (the Tornado) may not be the best accessory for me to install. Although in principal its a great idea, since the deepest part of my tank is only about 6 inches or so, the Tornado would be right at the 2/3's full point. Mounting the Tornado high on the tank reduces risk of a leak. The how-to video demonstrates installing the system 2 inches down from the top of the tank. Unlike the video where they cut a 1 in hole, I'd have to cut an 1.25 diameter hole... IMO not ideal solution for my shallow 36gal BW setup.
