Damon Daybreak lpg tank mount failure check yours please.
Just a quick of piece of advice to those of you out there with a Damon 2740.
Check the welded mounts on the outrigger part of the chassis where the lpg tank is suspended from, mine cracked, split and essentially failed resulting in the tank breaking away down the A1!!! The tank itself only held on to the RV by the pipe work and approx 10mm of the bracket! Be warned this could have been a potential lethal failure as the tank was dragged 100m before we could stop. If it had let go it probably would have gone under the rear wheels and flipped us over.
Its been sorted now, sort of, still having problems. More worrying is the fact that the two companies Damon and Mantanks would not help.
Anyway, just stick your head right under when you next refill and check the outrigger and the brackets on the tank. It could not only save you money but your life!
