Someone here has done it, I've seen it. Who are you?
I'm about to weld up something to hold a BBQ grill 20 gal tank under the van. Mine's a EB Ford do there's a good spot for it in the middle right behind the rear axle.
Sorry, search function isn't helping.
Good idea Dave! Will that work? I mean, can I easily find the fittings, etc. to mate it to a Suburban furnace?
CarringB, I guess I knew that but had forgotten. Anyway, If I can find the thread it had pics and everything of how he mounted a 20lb. underneath in the back. A forklift tank may be a better idea anyway.
You'll have to look into it. Most forklifts run on liquid fuel but I have one that has the valve on top of the tank. It has a flat bracket on the base that I drilled holes into and put castors on it so I can push it around. Use it for a set of propane heaters. If you can find one of those it would work out fine for you. If I find one similar I'll post back.

I think the DOT approved tanks are more rugged to help survive a crash. They also have a special check valve that is supposed to shut off flow if the piping or valve is broken off. If safety is a concern, it might be best to use the DOT approved tanks with the latest safety check valve. Don't know if the fork lift tanks are DOT approved.
