propane cover install issues

we have a Catalina SBX 291QBS we purchased in March. we got a plastic propane tank cover and trying to install it, it covers part of the WDH chain supports on the frame.

any recomendations on trimming the tank cover, or is it fairly easy to remove the tank tray and move it forward a bit? i dont want to fill my frame with screw holes so maybe some U-bolts would work??

looking for ideas. as soon as i get it fixed i will post up what i did.
Thanks. Mike

propane cover install issues

Hello
I to had this problem, and more. My WDH c-clamps not only hit the cover but couldn't set it the up pinned position with out hitting the metal tank rest. I simply pulled the cover, and tanks. The plate that the tanks actually sit on bolt with two 3/8 bolts and two metal screws to another smaller sub plate, that is welded to the frame. I just put two three inch spacers between these plates, and bolted it all back together with two longer bolts, did away with the metal screws all together, as I used treated wood as my spacer. Now my WDH clamps, don't hit, and I didn't have to do any drilling or cutting on the actual factory hardware. After all is done the plastic tank cover goes on and actually hides about half of the spacer. Hope this helps, I'm new to this forum thing, and when I figure it out I'll have a pic or two.

I ended up simply moving the propane tray forward a few inches amd everything fit nicely.

if it is just the new plastic cover that is causing the issue, why not trim it?

not sure if this is feasible. Do you have pictures?
