Yea, i was gonna say something about that gas tank. I don't think its smart to leave the gas tank out there on the trailer in the sun. Just doesn't sound rite to me. Why not just keep it in your garage? Just fuel everything at the end of the day.

Thats what I am thinking about doing. I am having a hard time trying to safely mount it on the trailer high enough to get enough gravity flow to the mower on the ground. I may end up designing a stand that holds it pretty high in the garage, and then can move it over to the truck and slide it on when it needs to be refueled.

The tank is more than likely compliant with DOT standards, but he was refering to mounting it on the trailer. That is the no-no. You will more than likely have to have it mounted in the truck.
