Isn't it dangerous, maybe illegal to travel with propane bottles open? What happens if there is an accident and open gas lines are venting? Bye bye RV and people around?

Propane tanks will shut off immediately if a line breaks and to my knowledge it is not illegal to travel with the refrigerator on except in some tunnels in the northeast. Some folks turn them off while fueling, but I don't and never have.

I had that problem years ago with one of my rigs . The wind was blowing out the pilot light. If you have spark ing. It's probably blowing right on the spark when trying to light.

Besides tunnels, the only other place I know of that you can't leave propane on is while you are on a ferry boat. ( and I mean the one that floats on water!)

I always thought you weren't allowed in any tunnel with propane tanks on or off. Please advise?

What about propane trucks and cars that run on propane, motor homes, etc.?

We just bought a new TT. During our inspection I asked the RV tec about leaving the fridge on propane while travelling because I'd read here that some people do it. He said it's illegal to leave the propane on while travelling. We're in Ontario. Different laws in the states?

Evidently. I guess I was illegal when we went to the Bay of Fundy, no one told me about it and we had the frig for the week we were there. Will know better next time if we return to Canada.
