Propane tank size...(another newbie question...)

Evening All,
Just wondered if it's possible to change the propane tanks in our 34rlsa from 30 pounders to 40 pounders?
One of the reasons we bought this unit is that it was set up with 2 solar panels, 4 6 volts and a 5500 cummins generator but it sure uses propane!

I have spent a little time looking, and I can not see a way to change the tank size to 40lbs bottles without modifying the frame and I am not about to that. I asked the factory rep when I was having mine built if there was a way to put 40lbs bottles in my trailer but was told no.

Not sure how the CC's are, but there is no way they'd fit in the Silverback. It's a tight fit to get the 30's in there. Crappy design really, compared to the nice slide out trays I had before on SOB.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
