height of propane tanks on 19'

On a 19' with front storage box, how high are the propane tanks off the ground? How far behind the hitch ball are they?

If somebody could measure or take a good guestimate, I'd appreciate it.

I'm building kayak racks for the back of my truck, and I'd like the kayaks to hang over the back of the truck a bit (just so they don't stick up too high above the cab), but need to make sure they don't interfere with the trailer behind.

Thanks.

Mine are right behind the jack, maybe 6" higher without cover and 12" with the propane cover on. The hitch itself is about 21" level. Here is a picture from another thread showing a member's set up. 2nd picture is my set up.

OKay, I just measured, my tanks are 18" taller than frame which is 22" high when level, or 42" total off the ground. The jack is 13" back from the tip of coupler, so another 3" for jack is 16" back total. Hope this helps.
