Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel

Arrived yesterday in our '14 377XL for a week at Toms Cove on Chincoteague for the annual Pony Penning. As usual no problems whatsoever!! But, while going through the tunnels one of the AC shrouds hit the ceiling of the tunnel probably 5 or 6 times . Not hard enough to do any damage, but somewhat disconcerting none the less. This happened in both northbound tunnels. Has anyone else had this happen ??

Copied this from the attached link; How tall is your rig?


Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel -- GATED LANES


Both of the tunnels can only accommodate a maximum height of 13’6”. District personnel have to inspect and measure any vehicle over that height requirement so that the driver can be turned around or properly adjust the height of the truck. Typically, this happens about 15 times per day. Allowing a truck to go unchecked is not only a safety issue but could also be very expensive.

You sure it wasn't the radio antenna hitting the tunnel ceiling occasionally? Seems like it would have damaged ac shrouds or more if direct hit. Our antenna goes another foot higher than shrouds.

I thought that your propane tank would be restricted in the tunnels...

Propane tanks are not prohibited. The requirement is they be shut off.

I was reading in GS directory and I got the impression you could'nt go through tunnels with LP. Was I reading it wrong.

You can go through tunnels but LP must be turned off. We are always ask by the toll attendants if our gas is shut off.

There's a tunnel (or two) in the Baltimore area that allow ZERO propane. There'a also a tunnel (or two) in the Virginia Beach area (other than the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel) where you MUST stop and have a uniformed municipal employee manually check / ensure that your propane is turned off before using the tunnel.
