RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

There are alot of reasons to carry extra propane in a TC..Extended stays in cold weather and ofcorse, running a propane generator..I have 2-25 gallon propane tanks and one 10 gallon tank I use for extended stays but with a truck camper,you need a way to haul it such as an atv trailer or what the op asked about on those huge rear bumpers.. I used this 10 gallon tank with my old Lance for Stealhead fishing when the temps never reached 30 degree's in the day and dipped below zero at night.. https://i.imgur.com/5P0OI9G.jpg height=440 width=640

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

tow rax holder This might be another option. Would need to strap them in but they would be well contained. I have seen cargo and TH use these for propane and gas containers. I like that one for maybe my needs with a smaller TC bumper..I like the idea it is covered kinda on all four sides...Like the op,it would be nice to have pre-made attachments that can just bolt to a TC bumper without the need for a hitch haul or towing a trailer for the extra's most TC people like to have around..

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

The op asked: we bought a 2019 northern lite it has the two little propane bottles like you see on b b q grills. I am looking for a way to mount either two of the same size tanks to the large bumper or even better say a 20 or 30 pound and never have to use the small ones that are so hard to get in and out. Thank those of you for helping with this according to cummins the generator will run for 3.5 hours on one tank that came with the camper. I have seen one northern lite with a tank on the bumper and the hose ran through to the mount inside the compartment. hope it can be done Nothing else!

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

As usual,most are not addressing what the op asked,just reasons why he should not do it, which he did not ask.. That might be acceptable for off road travel without traffic but not very safe for on road at highway speeds . Don't know from where most of you are but gas cans on the bumper/side mount or front and roof are very common in this area and not on off road vehicles only..In my to many years I have never heard of a gas explosion from a bumper mount gas can and certainly not from a rear mounted propane tank...Do any of the doomsdayers have any idea how many people carry extra propane tanks/gas cans on hitch hauls???? A bunch... Oh,someone link me to a gas can explosion mounted on the rear of a vehicle or propane explosion as asked here...PS..Never use Silicone(laffin)

Here is a link to several propane brackets that can easily be mounted to your rear TC bumper. TC Propane mounting brackets

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

There are several propane brackets(mounts)available that could easily attach to the rear bumper of your TC to carry extra propane.. As to the danger of it,just look at all the 5 gallon gas cans attached to the rear of jeeps etc,the preferred mounting place it seems.. I have also considered doing as you want to but I have a small rear bumper in comparison..When towing an ATV trailer the issue of extra propane/gas/whatever is kinda mute..

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

RE: Funny, sad and embarrassing.....

Not funny but,hahahaha....You pulled a Jayco(Me)... I did something similar with my cover..Left the cable jacks on it when I put the cover on and the fraid wire cable put a nice little slash in it from the wind..Has not gotten any worse which says alot for the covers we have... I use a small 750/1000/1500 watt electric heater in it mostly at home..750 watts makes quite a difference yet is easy on the electric bill..

RE: Dual pane windows....

My opinion only.. If given the choice on RV double pane windows or not,I would pass..The reason is when doing most of my travels on mountain backroads the seals in the window failed on more than one occasion making for a foggy window just like a house double pane can do with a window shaker AC.. They used to make storm windows for all RV's which it seams they don't do anymore..I liked them and prefer them to double pane.. Maybe the double pane works for those that don't spend the majority of there time off road but they don't for me..I see little difference in summer or winter between the two mostly because of the use of reflectix in non used windows in extreme temps.

RE: dumping tanks

I have a 35 gallon tote or I could use the sewer clean out at the house...I usually just use the tote though. I had a RV 30 Amp hookup put in near the water and sewer for full hookups for an RV...Comes in handy sometimes.

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

I just took mine off for winter driving.. Really, I thought you needed it to snow plow. :D Naw.I plow snow with this..The 2WD-DRW is used to pull out stuck 4X4's..LOL...To much weight can be worse than not enough weight! If I had a choice of the truck camper loaded in snow and ice or unloaded,I would choose unloaded around here..I prefer adding my own weight to a pickup for traction..With a truck camper(mine) it's 4000#or nothing..To much.. https://i.imgur.com/kSsmPok.jpg height=640 width=440 https://i.imgur.com/OQ5xBFb.jpg height=640 width=440

RE: extra fresh water

I get a kick out of some people and the worries about grey water and dumping..I guess where you camp it might matter but around here it doesn't.. Think about all the backpackers and tent campers,where does there waist water and even pooh go?..Yup,behind a tree or under a rock or log and nobody says a word...

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

Truck campers can be a good addition in the ice and snow yet they also can be a bad addition because of the weight magnifying any slippage, especially down hill. I just took mine off for winter driving..

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

Drivers condition may have caused this accident, however it could have just as easily happened with no input (or lack of) from driver. Would have been an opportunity to educate or at least mention as many are unaware that conditions on a bridge, overpass etc, can be MUCH worse when crossing them. Ditto and take note the recovery vehicles are chained up...That says alot...

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

My wife prefers that kind of step and I like the flip down step that came attached to my Lance bumper..We will see who wins out on steps.. Good video!
