Question Where to stow a DI Rinse tank?

I love my DI Rinse system I keep at home, it's too big and heavy (filled with water) to take on the road as I originally intended. As I'm terrible at cleaning my coach when traveling my 2019 resolution is to do better on this so I bought a smaller DI rinse system that is going to be easier to travel with.

https://dirinse.com/product/d-i-rinse-pro-50-unit/

I'm looking for suggestions on where a good place is to sorta permanently mount this. I'm thinking the gen bay would be a good place but I'm not much for metal work and know nothing of welding so I don't know how or where I would secure it there, and of course it would have to be removed in freezing temps. Other ideas would be above the batteries, also exposed to the elements, above the slideout tray in a shelf type setup or create something behind the pegboard with hose connections but I'd have to horizontally mount it, may not be ideal for the resin, and to replace the resin I'd have to remove the pegboard which is not my favorite task.

What are your thoughts on integrating a DI rinse system in the coach? Pictures welcome.

Personally since most campgrounds I've been at won't allow you wash your rig I just carry a bottle or 2 of waterless cleaner (actually has water but you just spray and wipe) But, the area in front of your generator is wasted space. I carry a collapsible ladder there and secure it in place with some ratchet tie downs. You could easily do the same thing without having to build a rack.

The gen bay would be ideal as I have the hot water hose bibb option. I'll have to brainstorm this area, lashing straps are a good idea maybe with some bottom shelf to keep it from ever sliding down and out.

Neal,
I have my DI tank and Ryobi pressure washer in the middle of the 2 first bays on the door side.
One of my best mods. Both sit inside of a tub in case of leaks. I'd like to make a cutout in the bottom, so I can close the door while using the system. But that's not a priority now. I think putting the tank up from in the gen bay would be fine, but make sure it's mounted upright, so the material is immersed at the pickup tube.
Ricky

Can't fix the sideways pics...

How about this

How about using this to tether the tank in one of the cargo bays.

Would the Generator compartment be a freezing risk?

Yes sir, hence why I said I'd have to remove it in the Winter (or I think I said).

Following to see what you come up with. When it freezes I head south to a warmer climate. What Ryobi pressure washer are you using on the road?

I originally designed the system to go in the generator bay. 8 changed plans when I realized my first trip would have low temp at night
My system is designed to be used while traveling, even on the side of the road. If I come across a love bug festival, I can pull off and from the door side access the pressure washer to clean the windshield.

My DI tanks are in the bay behind coach batteries, and supplied by the generator water line.

I have a loop going to the door side to be able to turn pressure on/off before it enters the di tanks. From DI tanks it goes to my pressure washer with a quick connect fitting in case I want to fill a bucket.Click image for larger version

We love our Simple-chuck double sized unit. It's on wheels and I store it laying down in the full pass through behind the Softener when on the road.

I would like to reposition it in the genny bay but on the 4018 it's a hood so the genny doesn't slide out.

I was told by the guy we bought it from in Quartzite in 2018 not to use hot water in any DI unit.

And lastly I would find steel to attach it to not including any frame rails of course. Never drill through a heat treated frame rail. It damages the heat treating. Truck frame rails have warning stickers on them say that.
