Second Charcoal Canister Needed?

I forgot to connect this posting to the original title line.  Dual canisters were a California thing too.  Based on you finding both of these features
on this coach, it  probably was first sold, or destined to be sold, in California.  Nothing said that a coach built for California could not be sold
elsewhere in the US.  I see no detriment to keeping both of these options.

The part is listed in the parts book as California only.  Mine rusted the bracket and partially fell off.  I rebuuilt it and reinstalled it again.
Jim K and another GMCer decided to start making them since it is a simple bent up piece of sheet metal (and mounting brackets) and easy to install.
I thought it was a good idea to try to keep exhaust pipe heat down and from entering the gasoline in the tanks.

JimK. Still has them and it is an easy improvement.  I mention all of this because there are some unknoow number of these shields out there
installed by GMCers on non-California sold coaches.
