acadianbob, I know this is an older post, but I loosened up some of the underbelly of my Surveyor to see where the tanks were (for weight distributing information), and the enclosed area on mine is free of any kind of insulation. As far as I could tell, the only insulation is around the frame corners and pipe exits. Hope this helps.

Thanks! I think the floor insulation is right up against the bottom of the floor. So that would fit with what you have seen. So maybe this isn't such a big effort after all. It would be nice to know how the thank fits in the frame and where mounting of a tornado would be possible. That way you wouldn't have to take down as much of the covering.
