Well you guys cost me more money. I went to Lowes and bought the fence post, caps, gutter & internal gutter ends. Then I went to Ace and picked up some tiny eye bolts. I already had the metal strapping too use for the supports. So, now it's done. I'll post pics once it's under the RV.

I have the dump adapter at the other side, but from memory (it's at the storage place atm), the hose would be an okay fit, but the bayonet adapter is about 4" diameter, so that would get stuck behind the gas pipe.

It should only take me 15-20 mins to make a new pair of brackets anyway, then I can decide which to use when I go back to the storage place to finish install.

Just got done doing mine last weekend, did the hinge and clasp but I really like the simple screen design.

King Yankee, I did this on my class A. I built my brackets out of threaded rod. It fits just inside the storage doors. Need to have them open to pop the cover off either end.

I took 1" square aluminum tubing and cut two equal lengths for each side. Held them in place with two C clamps and drilled through both pieces and the lip of the frame. I took 8" X 1/4" bolts with nylon lock nuts and put them through the holes with the nuts just to hold them in place(both sides). I then slid the posts between the two aluminum tubes, got them centered and tightened. This tubing will alleviate having to notch the posts around the propane lines.

Nice idea, actually sounds easier than what I did with folding 1.75" 18ga steel plate (same stuff that doc73 used) to shape, but making the new brackets 3/4" taller than the post, in order to clear the propane line. Anyway, done now, and should hopefully install tomorrow morning.

If I run into any unexpected issues then I'd probably use your idea, since it actually sounds easier to just drill two 5/16" holes (I used bigger bolts) through the square tubing), but hopefully these should work just fine.

4 beam flange clamps and fender washers is what I used. I had to shim it down a couple of inches anyways because of the body panel. Less holes drilled in the critical flange is always a good thing. Plus it gives adjustability.

If the chassis frame beam/flange was exposed is have been very tempted to do the same, but I wanted to avoid cutting holes in the under "skin" or trim, plus there's some wood between the frame and the body shell/skin
