Andersen Hitch installation on a 2013 19' International Bambi?

Has anyone installed an Andersen W/D hitch on a late model 19' International Bambi? It looks as though the propane tank cover or gas line might be a problem or in the way.

Thanks...

I haven't but there are a couple threads here (search Andersen) that have details that might help. Good luck.

The gas line is flexible and can be bent out of the way of the bolts. If the tank cover can not be moved consider adding links to the chains to move the brackets reward using the links as in post 1415 of this thread

This my Andersen on our 25' Airstream, yours should be similar. The gas line is in the way, take loose the clamp and move it aside.

Follow the instructions. Through-bolt or weld the top side of the frame brackets to keep them from moving, and do not try to tension the chains unless the tongue jack is supporting tongue weight, then after tensioning raise the jack, as per instructions.

Thanks everybody. That information helps a lot.

The people on this forum are such a wonderful source of information. Maybe someday I'll know enough to contribute rather than just ask questions!

I don't think so, although I suppose they could be that way. The safety chains are there to keep the trailer attached, a backup in case something on the hitch breaks loose.

On my 2007 Airstream we would cross the chains to form a cradle to catch the tongue if it fell loose, on this new one the chains are attached at the same point on the tongue, so they cannot be crossed.
