The open pipe is enough proof for a State Trooper to pull you over.
The fine can be enormous depending on his mood.
I hope you did not come by that knowledge the hard way.

The DoT regulations that govern this topic fall under the Spill Prevention safety Manual.

Don't doubt for a minute that there is a regulation for this, but I have searched the DOT site and can't find any mention of something this specific.

Same with a GY district mgr. telling me that if you use a car/truck tire on a trailer you have to downgrade the load rating by 10% by fed. stds.

Had an eyeglass appt and it interrupted my link search.
However, if you can't trust a state trooper; who can you trust?

That Spill Prevention manual does exist and I will find the section that deals with driving down the road with your pipe caps off (eventually). Worst case, a phone call to the barracks.

Is the Spill Prevention Manual part of the Herkbrary?

There are several references to end caps on all tanks containing hazardous materials in this publication.

Still looking for any RV exceptions.

Finding none:
