I have owned my Avenger ATI 27RKS for 5 months, and was checking my tanks to see how full they were.
After removing the tanks, I noticed two broken off screw heads from under the drivers side tank, and one missing screw head from the passenger side .
Avengers way of holding down 2 full propane tanks is with FOUR 5/16 x 3/4" self tapping screws
I am attaching a picture of what I found.
called my dealer, and found out this is the factory way of attaching the propane plate.
warranty work per manufacturer is to just install new self tapping screws.
If the propane tanks would have fallen off going down the road and caused an accident or killed someone, per my local law enforcement, I would be the one liable for what ever would have happened.
Almost exactly what happened to me yesterday 6/6/22. Could not have said it any better.
6 month old 2022 Rockwood 2516S
took off the tanks to find self tapping screws rusted and broken off.
Scheduled for service next week
Everyone should take the tanks off and look for this problem!
