Rack on underside of garage ??

I bought the 27HFS last year and have a couple questions. What is the rack behind the propane tanks supposed to be used for? I've been putting my grill there. Also there is some sort of rack under the frame towards the back of the camper?? I was thinking that maybe it's for a fueling station that mine doesn't have?

We also have an XLR 27hfs. Is the first rack for the battery?

I believe you are right about the second one. We do not have the fueling station either.

I don't have any pics and it's in storage right now. The rack behind the propane tanks that I'm talking about is in front of the battery. I haven't seen any other campers with it? Was curious to what its actually supposed to be used for?

We don't have much room between our battery and propane tanks. It would be interesting to see a picture of yours.

You can see it pretty good in the reflection. The battery is behind the rack close to the camper.

Thanks for the picture. Your trailer looks identical to ours except for the rack.
I wonder if anyone else has the rack? Ours is a 2011 model, perhaps that is the difference?
It looks great for storage!

Not sure what a gennie rack is? I asked the guy at the dealer when I picked it up and he didn't know?

It could be? Its generator prepped. I thought it would go inside the prepped area.

My husband and I were thinking that the rack under the garage is for a 2nd water tank?

Could it be for one of the large plastic storage trays to go in. I saw one on a Inferno toy hauler that went from one frame rail to the other. Perfect for storing sewer hose. It was held in with pins. Just pull the pin and slide it out for access to the tray.

I believe you're all referring to the rack that mounts the gas tank for the Fuel Station.

The rack towards the back is for an optional fuel station.
