Do you carry aerosol cans while traveling?

We have several aerosol can cleaning products and are wondering if they would be safe to store and carry in the trailer while traveling.

According to Google, Aerosol cans "may" explode at 120 degrees F. So just how hot can it get inside the trailer on a hot summer day when traveling down the highway?

Thanks!
Ron

I travel with them in the trailer and don't worry about it I always have the vents open and the products are stored where they can't get direct sunlit.

I don't believe I've ever even heard of an incident of an exploding aerosol can. I carry them and have never had a problem.

The only issue, and not the aerosol per se... I had a spray bottle of water / bleach in a basket with my cans of lube and such. In winter it froze (forgot about it) and my guess the water and bleach sitting in the basket rusted the bottom out of one of the spray cans and got the junk all over everything in the basket.

We carry spray cooking oil, insect repellent, sunscreen, slide-out lubricant & WD-40. They stay in the camper all year except winter storage with no problems.

I'm not qualified commenting, but I remember as kids we tossed empty cans in the bonfire or blew up the burn barrel .

We live where it is HOT. We have all kinds of aerosol cans in the RV. Inside and outside cubbies. The only problem we have had was that a few lost their pressurization over time. Was it the temp changes? Maybe. Otherwise, never had any blow up.

the only reason I remove mine is for winter storage. No freezing allowed.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

'may' is the pivotal term you 'heard'. no, a can is not going to somehow 'explode' just because your rv is warm. I'm sure that plenty of storage sheds in yards everywhere get 'way hotter' than you RV.... no explosions reported recently!
