TankTire

Hello,
Here's a great add on accessory, as long as you don't have a tank gauge on your propane tanks. It's the tank tire. Keeps the propane tanks off the A frame, keeps the vibration and wiggling to a minimum. And the tanks don't scratch up the paint work.

I picked mine up here: https://www.woodlandtravelcenterstor...linder-holder/

Woodland is super for price and delivery. (not anywhere near me)

I cut up a piece of fuel line and place 3 or 4 two inch pieces under each tank. Fifty cent fix

I bought these hoping they would work to clear my TankCheck sensors, but getting the TankTire into the tank tray on my 22FB was a severe pain...and as much as I loved having my TankCheck sensors on there, there was just no reliable way to do so. I gave up and am flying blind again for propane level. The TankTire was just too large in diameter to work in my case, I even tried bending the tank tray to get more taper to wedge them in...but it was just not reliable.

I will likely cut something else to make as a "ring" spacer in the future so that my TankChecks will fit, as the TankCheck provided solution is a joke entirely. (OT, i realize)

I put these on my tanks a while ago. Definitely keeps the rust/scratching down on the airstream itself... and it definitely is "nicer" to set the tanks down with these tires on them. I saw them in a video where the owner wanted to lift up the tanks just enough to mount sensors to the bottom of the tank... and they worked for that.

They are pricey though. I wish I had thought of just splitting open some rubber pipe instead!

The downside I've found is that they trap water and help the bottom rim/foot of the tank itself start to rust. I don't know if this rusting is better or worse than what would naturally happen, and it may not matter in the long run, but you do have to be careful that you don't spill rusty water out of the feet and onto your shoes/clothes.
