This is an interesting thread.

We lived in Baltimore in the 70's, before the bridge or the second tunnel was built or 911 and propane was prohibited then without "conditions". I think they are overly cautious, but, it is their tunnel.

I do wonder about propane powered vehicles vs. the tunnel...

We've passed thru this tunnel several times--
Cumberland Gap Tunnel

The Cumberland Gap Tunnel is a 4-lane twin-bore mountain tunnel that is 4,600 feet long, and it carries US-25E under Cumberland Gap between Tennessee and Kentucky, and it was completed in October 1996 at a cost of $280 million.

The tunnel project was administered by the Federal Highway Administration's Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division, for the National Park Service.

IF a "dangerous cargo" truck wants to pass thru (ie- gasoline tanker,
propane tanker etc) They stop traffic and a guide truck with flashing lights
leads the truck thru. Once they exit the other end traffic is allowed to
resume.

They have a pull off on each end for us RV types to shut off our LP tanks
before we go thru.

Cumberland Gap National Park is a great hiking destination, especially
in the fall.

that makes sense to me



I asked this same question at the local RV repair
they said
"not suppose to travel with it on to fridge
but
most everybody does"

I'll go with the most everybody
we travel with frozen foods
which I wish to keep frozen
--- ice cream ---

but also
thanks to this thread
will shut off for tunnels
or
special signed areas
