"Extend a stay" tank between frame rails

I'm looking at a Winnebago 24k (Mercedes-Benz diesel chaiss). I think the 13 gallon LP tank is between the frame rails. It has remote fill setup about 5' behind the drivers door with what looks to be 2 regulators or electric solenoid (not sure with the covers that are on them) but I think one for the LP gen-set and the other for the rest of the coach.

can anyone help with a setup like this and how extend a stay would be added? I will try to get a pic of the fill port bay with what i think are the regulators tomarro. Should i crawl under to get pics of the tank also?

Thanks bob

I went to get a better look today at how the LP is set up. It has an electric solenoid coming off the tank with a flex line that turns into black pipe in the pic with 2 regulators (see pic). It looks to me that the flex line could be moved into one side of an extend a stay and add a short hose off the other side to feed the regulators. some kind of bracket to hold the extend a stay.

I have a few other pics of the tank and stuff but I'm not good at resizing to make user friendly. I can post them if needed.

Yes that is two regulators all right. If I were to put in an extend-a-stay I would figure out a way to do it at the "T" fitting (The bottom of the T in the photo) this would require some serious adapters from the loacl propane supplier or some modification to the Extend-a-stay.

I wonder if Marshall Brass would make one special if you contacted them. I suspect they could but I need to take a look at my Extend-a-stay first.. Be right back...

Ah.. yes, it appears the male and female POL connectors are simply screwed into the main body of the Extend-a-stay.. This argues for their being removable and the unit being able to be installed below that "T". But talk to a propane professinal please.

NOTE: I've seen installs where they simply put in a "T" fitting and some manual valves.. These scare me.
Home is where I park it!

Thanks wa8yxm for the info. I will get a propane professional to get it right if i buy this class C.

Knowing it can be done makes me feel better about this class C. I still have some butterflies over all.
