By the way this is the features of your fifth wheel:

ELECTRICAL/HEATING/AC

12V battery disconnect
30 amp service
55 amp electrical converter
13,500 BTU central air conditioner
Double 30 lb LP bottles with auto change over
VIEW MORE
31,000 BTU energy efficient furnace
GFI circuit
Awning light receptacle with switch
Residential halogen lighting in living area ceiling
LED lighting in living area ceiling
Six-way one-touch remote for awning, slide-out and landing gear
I don't know what I was thinking saying 5th wheels have 2 40s. They have 2 30s. I should know, I have one. But I'm not sure what those specs are you are calling mine. Lots of that stuff is incorrect.

I have a 34 ft Avion TT that I purchased new. It came with twin 40# aluminum tanks. They are mounted on the tongue in front of the battery box. It also has an aluminum cover for the tanks. I think I have seen Airstream TT with 40# tanks.

I have 3 40# tanks in my 5th wheel and that's the way it came from the dealer. I have a propane generator so I needed the extra propane.

I am including a link for nationwide State Road Laws. I've scrolled through the whole thing. It appears that states that have tunnels have restrictions about propane traveling through those tunnels. I can only find one state - Texas - that lists the size of tanks. There you can only transport two 30 pound tanks or one 40 pound tank.

There might a better source somewhere else though.

I was not aware there might be restrictions on total propane. At one point I was carrying the twin 30's on the tongue, a 20 in the bed of the truck (for the portable fire pit) and about 3 of those 1# disposable tanks.

Don't Get Caught!

I'm thinking it's like the towing a propane tank through a tunnel issue. It would only come up if a LEO happened to stop you coming out of a tunnel. They could add on the charge for violation of the state limits.

Plus there are restrictions when using ferries. BC ferries allow two 30# tanks on the trailer and a 20# tank in the TV to be used for a BBQ.
