Most states, if not all, have no restrictions on RV's entering tunnels because of the small amount of propane carried on them. The warning signs you see before entering a tunnel pertain to Hazardous Material Carriers, such as large trucks carrying combustible products.
I voluntarily shut off the flow of propane to the fridge for the same reasons as when entering a gas station.
If an automobile accident were to happen inside a tunnel, there is a possibility of a gasoline spill. If so, the burner on the gas side of the fridge could ignite the gas fumes.
