Lou, I have been through several of the other tunnels in the Hampton Roads area, but not over the Bay Bridge. If that is similar to the others, there will be a "required" pull-off for campers and trucks with hazardous material placards before getting on the bridge. To save time at the pull-off, I will cut the gas off at my last stop before getting to the VDOT inspection station.

Good Luck on your trip !!!

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge (William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge) has no propane restrictions. This is the bridge connecting Annapolis with the Eastern Shore of MD. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel which connects MD to VA does have the propane restrictions.

Chap, I made it through great. An update. Even though we had EZPass, there is a gate bar at the toll booth. When we stopped, the nice lady just asked if our tanks were off. We said yes, and she waived us through. As it turned out, I could have taken my 3rd tank, but no sense taking a chance. She could have just as easily said "Pull over there." LOL

Great News. You made it across the Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel before I did.

He had to have a hitch, or he wouldn't have been able to connect his truck and camper.

As a daily propane powered vehicle driver, i some times find it a real pain in the butt... no parkades, no underground parking, no tunnels, etc, etc. I still manage to sneak into one parkade i know of but i go park on the top floor (8th story) and it has no sub- levels for propane to sink down to if it does leak.
