just bought a mini max yesterday and hauled it home, over a 100mi.. When I got home I noticed that the screws holding the tank on one of the straps broke loose. :( (almost lost my tank)
After an inspection I saw that the screws seemed small for holding that weight and also the padding looked iffy. I decided to up grade the screws to a larger shank with better holding. I added rubber strapping instead of the foam weather stripping that had been used. Another issue was the drain valve was pointing forward and being real close to the tires I changed it to a plug so rocks or brush would not break it off. Also I am adding rubber mud flaps to the trailer to help keeping rocks from hitting the tank. What have you guys done on the under belly to beef it up for back country camping?
