But as far as a general system inspections I do not know of any requirement....... hopefully some of the left coasters will comment.........
I think what the OP is referring to is a Canadian requirement. New units can be ordered with the proper Canadian certifications, and I think any time a unit is resold the propane system needs to be re-certified or some other such nonsense. To my knowledge nowhere in the US requires such a certification. I could be wrong on that. No doubt somewhere in the US has to protect someone from themselves when it comes to LP gas, or generate some revenue by some type of BS inspection requirement.
The only tunnels I know of that prohibit propane transport, and I think its bottles over 10 lbs, is the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel on the beltway and Ft McHenry tunnel on I-95. I have heard there are similar restrictions around Boston? The Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel require valves to be off but I don't think they are going to stop and physically check them. That would cause a traffic jam from Norfolk to Philly.
How long before this thread turns into the infamous towing with the fridge running on propane fear mongering fiasco?
