Jacks reserve hydraulic tank

Does anyone know a way to secure my resevior tank as it seems too easy to move?
It seems that it is gravity and its hoses that is holding it in place.

Where is the tank located? Are you sure it's not 'loose' to allow for vibration or movement of other components? A length of aluminum or steel band and a few bolts can be used to fabricate a securing strap if needed.

I almost lost my tank completely. I had put a strap around it a long time ago and that will work BUT the mounting screws on the tank itself vibrated completely out & the tank fell. When I stopped to see why I was getting an alarm I found the tank dangling sideways and only still there because the tank neck was barely supported by that old strap. I got some stout perforated steel & some wood & made a platform for the tank and attached it to the frame. It hasn't moved at all for a couple of years now. My rig is a 99 Tradewinds. Good luck with yours

I used a long hose clamp and a couple of pieces of wood and it's staying pretty well.
I remember a couple of years ago that someone on here was talking about his dropping all the way out on the freeway in L.A. and I think it was a Tradewinds.
