It was funny, I went to Home Depot and Lowe's looking for a replacement rubber mat/lining. They closest thing I could find was matting for a shower. I just said screw it and went back home and was going to put the tank back in with nothing in between it and the skid. Then I looked around in my storage closet and found the pipe insulation. I had used it earlier to wrap up my A/C lines out of the evaporator and had a bunch left.
I just lucked out really.
