You could mount it on the tongue and if it exceeds the tongue limit cap off and remove one of the propane bottles. 37 pounds is what a full bottle weighs. So you add 100 but remove 37 for net gain of only 63 pounds. In warmer climate we tend to use less propane and it solves the problem of proper tongue weight.

When they saw me watching them with binoculars they took off. In California I am

A cell phone with camera, binoculars, and another important item are handy and good deterrents. So far nothing stolen since I started RV camping in 2003.

Hi
Thanks, great advice, and ideas about mounting.
What about a good lock box?
I have a front bedroom, I am thinking of mounting on rear bumper.
Take care.

Sorry, but, The rear bumper is not a good idea for a whole bunch of reasons.

You will have to find a different place to mount it. I know it sucks, but that is just how it is. Sorry again.
