You're not talking about something like this, are you?

What does the tongue of your trailer look like now?

This one is available, it seems to mount to a wall.

I guess the one on my PU was made in the PU factory, I've never seen it available for sale. I like it, just unscrew the cylinder and lift it out.

In the picture that bupkis posted, does your tongue area have the two horizontal angle iron supports that the bracket is sitting on?  If so, you're covered - at least as far as Jayco is concerned.

If you have these supports (welded on at the factory), you'll notice the holes on the vertical parts of those supports I've circled below.  You set the tank on these supports and line up the holes that are in the ring stand welded onto the bottom of every 20# LP tank.  Use your favorite method of securing with nuts and bolts, cotter pins, etc.  Every time I took one off to get it refilled, it took a little bit of effort to realign the holes when putting it back on, but they do work.  In my single PUP experience with Jayco, there was no reference to an extra bracket to hold the handle area securely - just the two bolts on the bottom.


(Sorry bupkis, I stole and modified your image)

Otherwise, if could provide a picture of how your tongue is currently configured, we may be able to offer better suggestions.
