Replacing Propane tank on Bounder

Good Morning Everyone.

Looking at replacing my OEM propane tank on my 2003 Fleetwood Bounder. Its on a W22 Chassis.

My propane is rusty hot mess and wondering if anyone has replaced theirs and if so any recommended suppliers. I thought of taking off and sanding and painting, but the replacement costs don't look that bad. I would do myself. What size is the standard LPG tank? 20 pound or more?

Thank you.

I am looking at this as well
I do believe you have a 25 Gallon tank, not lbs. (at least that's what my 2000 Pace Arrow has).

On a class A, the tank is usually around 80 pounds or 18 US gallons

I've never had to do this, but if I have to the first place I'd check with is the local propane supplier.

MH tanks are sold by capacity in gallons. They don't weight MH to fill them by the pound.

Local propane dealers rairly deal with ASME propane tanks. They supply cylinders for the home and tanks that you bury.

Amazon sells them.

As far as capacity, find out what you have, its stamped on the tank, or measure the space you have to fit one.Click image for larger version

2003 Bounder....ALL models had a 25 gallon LP Tank


Unless damaged (Fire/accident) or rusted thru no need to replace


Wire brush it,,,,,,,,,,,a few rattle cans of white/grey paint and go at it

Replacing propane tank

Thank you everyone for the responses. After I sent my message i realized I meant to say gallons not pounds.

Looks like my first option will be to clean it up and prime and paint. Tough to get worked on as you have to crawl around under coach but will give it a shot. Good suggestions and again my thanks.
