Move storage box

Hi All! I recently added an electric tongue jack to Bailey. We love it, but it presses against the propane tank cover such that I cannot close the storage box. It seems that there is about an inch and a half of room between the box and Bailey's body that if I moved the box back about an inch, the propane cover would not be a problem. Anyone done this? Seems like I just need new holes in the storage box. I tried a soft cover propane tank cover that looked fine when first put on. It shredded in the back on our outing. Clearly it was junk...
thanks Kris

Make sure that if you move the box towards the trailer, you still have room for the top to swing when you open it. It moves towards the trailer when opening.

I have the same combination (electric jack, hard tank cover & storage box. While I could still open & close the storage box, it rubbed against the propane tank cover, making it difficult. I finally heated & reformed the back side of the tank cover (it is a thermoplastic) to provide more clearance. There is enough free space between the tanks & the back of the cover to put a 1/2" "dent" in the top.
