I think you are wrong. I looked at what you can take on a RV and you have to have more than 2 30lb tanks. I think most people see no LP and they think about campers but the regs are for trucks with placards. It says in a RV that under 220lb is exempt

Either way I do not think I would want to even think about navigating NYC with an RV or TT!

They are correct, NY says no propane at all lower level of GWB and tunnels. I asked if it could b shut off since I travel with the motorhome frequently across GWB. I drove through Baltimore tunnel 2 weeks ago with a car, police had a class A pulled over and they didn't seem happy. I was stuck in traffic jam, I wasn't happy either.

3 times I drove through NYC with a class C and a car trailer, 52 ft. long. Other than traffic/drivers, no problem. Class C or A have DOT tanks and according to MD DOT are permitted in tunnels. I have run the Balt. tunnel several times with tank off. Not knowing why he was stopped only speculation. Could have broken down.

Not quite correct regarding NYC, but it's pretty well hidden - see the Red Book which is issued by the Port Authority of NY and NJ which administers the bridges and tunnels. See p. 5 (of booklet not PDF pagination) - flammable gasses are Class 2, Division 2.1. See p. 13. See the note on p. 13, Materials of Trade (MOT) are allowed here. The definition of MOT is on p. 33 which seems like it doesn't apply, but it carries over to p. 34 where there is this note:

Division 2.1 or 2.2
DOES A CAMPER/RV MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR M.O.T
• Not over 100 kg (220 pounds) in a cylinder, or
• Not more than 70 gallon water capacity for a non-liquefied Division 2.2 material
with no subsidiary hazard in a permanently mounted tank manufactured to the ASME Code.

Other limitation
• Aggregate gross weight of all materials may not exceed 440 pounds


[I presume that LIQUIFIED petroleum gas does not qualify for the "non-liquefied" exception but should meet the first one, <220#]

[the proviso "with no subsidiary hazard..." appears to apply to both the way it is written in the booklet after both bullet point]

[note the key term: "permanently mounted" - this would exclude TTs as well as any auxiliary tanks brought along for the ride]

If you are daring enough to take an RV into NYC, you might want to bring a copy of the Red Book along or the key excerpts because chances are good most police or PATH officers don't know every little detail.

I will say I have driven a car + U-Haul trailer right through NYC and it wasn't so bad. However, there are some streets where you may find a very tight squeeze and if you can't get through and have to back up . . . you might hear a little bit of car horn honking! Also, just go ahead and expect every driver to cut in front of you. Once you know and expect it, it just becomes part of life.

Problem is everyone interprets the regulations differently including the port authority. With the aggrivation of being pulled over past the,GWB who would want the hassle. Easier to avoid then get in a match with port authority. Since taking directly with them gave a different answer then the book they will give a ticket and let you agree later.
I travel through NY approx 10 times a yr. Traffic jams always, really no problems with drivers.

If that's the case then someone should tell the Baltimore tunnel people... Police, toll takers, administration, Web site.. Because they all say no to propane!
