Extend-a-stay on Jayco Precept 35S
 
3 Attachment(s)
We are currently at a campground and our propane is running very low. At our location, no one will deliver and we would have to unhook and go into town to fill up. That would be inconvenient. I looked into getting an extend-a-stay and installing it. All of the pictures that appeared in all of the reviews made it look like a pretty straightforward installation. However when I went to my tank, as you can see in the pictures below, it is quite different. Has anyone installed one of these in their motorhome that could share their experience as to how to do it?

The cover will just pop off of there. All that's under it is the regulator.

The cover seems to be riveted in place with some plastic fasteners. So there is no problem or danger in removing that cover and leaving it removed or, should I invent something where after installing the extend-a-stay I put that cover back on and maybe hold it down with bolts and nuts?

Are those the pinch type fasteners? I don't know, but maybe the fasteners can be removed by pinching them on the bottom side, then re-used. I'm thinking kind of like in automotive land, when you are removing panels and whatnot, they have those dumb little plastic fasteners.

Great observation. Will confirm. I think Iíll have to trim the cover for the hose that goes to the portable tank can come out, if I replace this cover.

Just pop those plastic fasteners and add the extend a stay. On mine the cover fit back on with the left holes lining up with what were the right holes on the tank bracket. I used those to hold the cover in place using just two fasteners. Probably donít even need the cover at all for temporary use.

Attachment 328004 I just bought a piece of aluminum angle iron and used that to support the regulator as everything had to slide to the right to make room for the extend-a-stay

On my Winnebago none of the holes would line up. So I added a flat piece of aluminum to the tank to mount the cover. Also added support bracket similar to what dempen did.

I was able to install the device this afternoon and everything is working perfectly. Thank you everyone for your help.
