    I was at a job for NOT dish network and i had to take a picture of this install. Yes thats a dish and its not on a pole next to the propane tank but it was attached to the propane tank.

    Does this really need to be on two threads?

    So... do you know who installed it?

    If someone self-installed, they can do whatever they want... even if it looks bad and might not be safe.

    QC or supervisors should be all a over this if it was tech installed, otherwise as Stewart said self install can put it wherever they wish, But judging from the picture it seems that it was self installed, because supervisors would check their work if its up to quality standards with taking pictures if its necessary.

    So is the mounting foot tack welded to the tank, or did they use self tapping screws ??

    Oh, and if home owner installed, they still may not be OK in doing it that way. Most of those tanks are rented and the supplier will take a dim view of misuse of their property.

    My tank is just sitting on two small cement pads. Frost heave alone would make my LP tank unsuitable as a stable mounting platform for an HD dish.

    (like everything else on that install isn't a headache!)

    I want to see a real picture , why wouldn't you post a picture of how its attatched? all you show is a sideways picture from the front.

    Sorry no installer would attach this to a propane tank!
    And who in their right mind would put a screw, or weld in tank full of gas. They would be dead!

    So I don't buy it!

    Lets see better pictures.
