JT'S Armstrong install issues

The first was the propane hose bracket. Solved by breaking an eye bolt (later addressed).

As mentioned I twisted off a stud on a eye bolt.

Went to get a connecting nut. From Lowe's sold in a pack of two. Come in handy on propane hose issue for me.

Yes aware the bolt was not tighten in brace at time of pic. Shows where I put the connecting nut with twisted off eye bolt in the rear.

Mounting on the frame of my 2010 Silverback the other is to bolt the support on the eye bolt before bolting the eye bolt to the frame. The bolt would hit the sub floor in the front compartment with the nut to the inside or you will remove the eye bolts like I did and put the bolt head closest to frame to get tight.

Removed the nylon nut and placed the second connecting nut and drilled out the support to 3/8. I used an extra bolt and locking nut. Gain clearance from the support and stopped the rubber portion of the propane hose on the metal support of the bottom of the propane storage.

Just got installed seems a lot better. Barely can tell when family walks in the camper.
