Quite frankly I don't believe anything will be safe until it's been inspected by a certified technician.
The cost of getting all the lines and appliances inspected is small compared to the cost of the trailer and you and your family's life.
If everything is in good shape propane is safe and easy to use, if there's leaks, stuff in the lines, cracks in the fire boxes, or any of many other defects it can be deadly.

I'm really glad to hear that. The RV center should be able to give you an estimate even over the phone.
Enjoy your camping trip(s). Once you get the propane all working right it'll be a real pleasure to use that trailer. We've had ours for almost 8 years, the last four years we've spent almost 100 days each of the years in one trip.
I'm sure you'll make lots of good memories.
We use ours year around.

As long as you use a bracket which holds the regulator the right way up, it sounds like you're good to go.

A customer armed with an understanding of the work - excellent!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

If you go to the Scamp website and click on Showroom the slide show will come up showing trailers with the bracket attached to the tank. As others have indicated it does not hook over the top of the tank but instead it hooks over the opening at the bottom of the handle.
