Dual Propane Tank Cover with lid?

I saw one of these the other day and liked the idea of accessing the propane tank valves without having to wrestle the entire cove off. Several RV'ers that I have talked about this idea express concerns that the lid securing hardware will vibrate off and get lost when driving down the road. Anyone have one with the lid?? Comments / opinions??

my 2011 came with this lid. it is great! you dont have to worry about the screwdowns coming off as they are encapsulated in the base of the tank cover. it is the best cover i have seen to date!

I have a 2010 Rockwood 2604 with that type of cover and have not had any problems. It does make it easier than trying to remove the full cover.

I have 1 identical the the one pictured on my trailer. Got it at camping word $30 or $35. No worry of the hardware vibrating out, hard to explain but you will see if you get one.

that same cover came with my 2011 2306
as long as you push the tanks out a little - the cover wil just press down over the tanks tight

a lot of those with the hard shell cover, simply use a hole saw and cut out a hole, on each side, to access the valves.

My 2010 2501ss came with one just like it and I love it and have had no problems at all with it.
