How old is the water heater? I'd be tempted to take it myself. I'm in Tenn. and may not be too far away. We love a good Saturday drive :-)

$50 and it yours. Depends on where you are located if it is worth shipping.
I am installing a tank less on the tongue instead of using this Atwood unit.

Yeah mine looked exactly like that. Is it just the tank you're offering or the whole unit. I might be interested. Thx for the offer

I did this instead of using the Attwood heater.
I haven't finished yes so I can't say how it works. Testing with it on a hand truck works well.
I made the stainless steel enclosure and welded a steel bracket to the framework. One reason for the extended frame/tongue.




As to the Attwood it is older, but I don't know the age. I bought it for my Scamp project and did the above instead.

Sent you a pm Red Baron. That setup looks deluxe. I think the shipping to BC would be too much. Thanks for the offer.

Redbarron, thanks for dealing with me on the heater. I noticed on your new tongue you used angle iron to support your propane tank. I need to chop out my stock propane deck platform and fabricate something. Yours looks simple yet practical. I have 2 tanks so I could partition the angle iron into 2 squares. How are you holding your tank down?

I am going to fabricate a hold down using two 1" stainless straps with hooks that go over the lower rim of the handle and the other end is connected with a turnbuckle to the angle using "S" hooks. This will let me tighten the turnbuckles to tighten the straps and hold down the tank.
When I have built it I will try to remember to post a picture.
I have to build things that are basically simple since that is all I can figure out.

Here are the pictures of the LP tank hold downs I made for my system.





Stainless steel straps and galvanized turnbuckles connected with "S" hooks.

Tightens down nicely.
