Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so, some have entertained angels unaware.

Well we were able in the end to just cut down the long screw that holds down the two 11# bottles and the top crank worked just fine over the top of them!! We haven't welded in the holder, but are so pleased it all is going to work without anymore modifications or extra buying and exchanging out anything. We got very lucky.

Way to go Tania!

I thought I was the only member that had 2 11# bottles. I love it and think I may have found a better tongue box to match. Time will tell.
