Propane tank...Too Old???

Just purchased a 2004 Damon Escaper.
MH has a 60# propane tank that runs across the MH.

The question is, does this tank, without being damaged, need replacing?
From what I can see from crawling underneath, it is in good condition and has no rust or other deterioration. Is there a life time limit on these tanks like the 20# tanks?

Thanks in advance!!!

Propane tanks on motorhomes are A.S.M.E. certified and never need replacing as long as they are not rusted or damaged.

According to a search of several threads.
ASME tanks do not expire . But should be regularly inspected by owner for dents gouged and heavy rust. Shared before was unmandated 10 to 15 years for regulators getting a replacement.
