Even tho the fridge typically runs almost 40 deg F the freezer is nice and cold.

When I pour one of those 40 deg beers in the freezer mug it gets ice on top
and if I let it sit long enough it will turn slushy.
You can't get much colder than that!

When I complained about the size of the fine, he said I could choose the other one. I said what was that one? He said "Risking a Catastrophe" and that fine was 1000 dollars.

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnels also have propane restrictions.
They make you pull over and they check that you meet the requirements before you can proceed. Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel -- GAS REGULATIONS
Herk this is BS what are you going to do with a fricking 20 or even 30lb cylinder? I bet 55 gallon drums are still ok to travel with and that is what was used in almost every terrorist attack. This will not stop people untill e everyone that can see the BS calls into their elected puppet and lets them know how they feel.

It was that way for the Baltimore harbor tunnel before 911 and always has been for the most part.

Chill out!!

If an RV is involved in a bad wreck while in the tunnel, it is much more
likely to spark a fire IF the LP is on.
Puncturing a tank is possible but if the LP tank is ON all that has to happen
is for a hose or pipe or tube anywhere in the RV to get damaged and you
have spewing LP.

Can you imagine a raging smoking fire in a tunnel with 100s of cars all backed
up bumper to bumper and no way to get out??
This is the stuff of nightmares and scary movies!

I get the reasoning.
In Lou's case a warning would have been more neighborly.

I guess I'm one of the few that won't travel with my propane on, unless the trip is over about 5 hours drive. I always turn if off before re-fueling, why take the chance? If it's less than 5 hours drive the fridge stays plenty cold.

Big (Propane powered) delivery trucks for years have been used. Guess what the truck that delivers propane for our area runs on (Propane). I do not think these are traveling (Bombs) any more than a vehicle with (Gas)! Involved in a wreck,anything could happen! Youroo!!

I had a bad wreck in my TT 2 years ago. The trailer rolled over and was completely destroyed. Both 30 lb. LP tanks were on at the time. The front end where they were was completely smashed and at first I could not find the tanks in the debris. When found, they were both intact, hoses ripped off, valves open BUT not leaking and still partly full. Why? Because for several years valves have been required to have an automatic shut off if a rapid flow is detected. LP tanks thus equipped are a hazard only if the tank itself is ruptured, which could happen with the tank on or off.
