Propane Tank Cover - interferance

Hello and Thanks to all in advance, your advice has always been helpful !

I have a 2016 22FB Bambi, with the plastic propane tank cover, always seems to be problematic since I installed the electric hitch jack. The head of the jack post won't allow clearance for the tank cover. Today I purchased a propane tank gauge and have even less clearance.

Question: has anyone used a soft replacement cover. ( not a big fan of vinyl)
any aftermarket products?
I priced the aluminum from Airstream, but very costly and not sure it will have any greater clearance?

I'm having the same issue with my 95.. Have you tried or thought about installing it sideways to see if that would work?

I purchased a vinyl cover (white) for my tanks because I thought I was going to have trouble with the towers when I installed the Propride. It is white, but it looked decent. Never used it, since the Propride hitch towers didn’t interfere. They aren’t that expensive. And you could change them every year or two no problem.
