Propane tank cover ?

Do any of you have a propane tank cover that is not mounted perpendicular to the frame? Ours even has a bit of foam padding between the electric jack post and the cover! It appears to list to the rear and has scratched most of the paint from the frame where it comes into contact.

Yes, I use some lengths of 3/8 inch rubber fuel line from any auto parts stroe, about 4" long each and slit them lengthwise. I then slip them over the contact areas (3) with the frame.

Does yours still tilt? Mine has a cut out for the battery box, but does not fit that far to the rear.

It tilts a little. If I were really picky about it (and now that you have provoked my obcessive compulsive nature...and thanks for that) I would get some thicker walled hose material for the rear sides (only need them at the frame contact locations) and some thinner walled hose for the raised contact area at the jack flange.

I'll get some photos and post in a bit.

I nested some smaller diameter rubber hoses inside of some gray plastic conduit. cut a lot inside the length, and ... painted it black and now have more level / perpendicular propane tank cover. If you need pics, PM me.
