Propane Compartment Shelf
Rick Coleman created a neat storage shelf for the propane compartment on his 2005 36MDDS. I liked it so much I asked him to make a copy for our 2006 36MDDS. He went through a lot of work creating first a cardboard, then a wood and fiberboard model to fit the coach, had it built and powdercoated white by some friends with shops that could do the work.
I asked Rick if I could post some pictures of his work on this forum, so he sent me some pictures, and I added a couple pictures of my shelf in our coach. Rick is using his to hold a second small propane tank for the BBQ and he had a ring made to set the tank in, along with a little holding mechanism for the top of the tank, which he will secure the tank with a lock.
I am currently using the area to store my chocks and jack pads, but will probably add a plastic box and include my small disposable propane tanks for my BBQ grill in that box. Both of us want to do this so we can keep our propane tanks in an unlocked compartment. I used stainless steel bolts and nylon spacers to secure the shelf to the front wall of that compartment, and another bolt through the bracket that holds up the main propane tank.
Here's the pictures -- the first two are Rick's, in his coach, and the second two are mine, in my coach. if you would like dimensions, more pictures, or have other questions, you might want to PM Rick directly and he can give you more information.
