I took the empty space above the LP tank and made a compartment for light stuff like, fishing rods, brooms, flag pole, tire covers, and windshield cover.

I used 2x3's and 1/4" plywood.

That's where I keep my spare tire. Perfect fit.

I have a 07 3274 and i was looking at the compartment next to the propane tank. There is a panel that does not open there but if you look from under I have an area that is just like all the other storage compartments. I was thinking about figuring out a way to make this a place to hold my fishing poles.

But now i will have to go look at the propane tank area and see if that is easier.

Thanks for the post.

Kevin

Kevin I didn't even look at that blank panel. Using the space above the propane was easy. You have the sheild for the E/G as a back wall and I believe I cut slots in the 2x3's to fit over the frame. I ripped the plywood in half to get that in and screwed it to the 2x3's. Then built a front door.

When I camp and there is a chance of rain, I use a smaller rug(5x6 ft) then if it does rain, I hang it over my propane tank to dry. I tie it in place and can even drive with it there.

Did you put a lock on the door? I know on my MH the propane compartment is not lockable so anything put in there is fair game.

I store a folding picnic table there, along with chairs, a tank of helium (200 cubic feet, long story) and 1.5 gallons of water under pressure.

The water is my "Camp fire extinguisher" a refillable garden sprayer basically, I pressurise with a tire valve instead of the somewhat broken hand pump, very handy for shooting stray sparks from the camp fire and in a "worst case" if figure having some water over the propane tank might not be a bad thing

As for the helium, When I make Quartsite my rig is the easiest rig in the desert to find. You see, my "Site marker" is 130 feet tall (An advertising balloon with the group logo on it) and the helium is to inflate the big yellow ball. Plus once again, in a worst case situtation I suspect a rapidly expanding cloud of cyrogenic gas would, like the water, not be a bad thing.

Since the bottom of the bottle is up against the back side of the generator I'm not worried about the rocket effect should the top valve get damaged, it's well locked in place.
