My brother checked in to a local CG yesterday, setup and then went out to dinner. When they returned they found out they had no water. Turns out somebody in the park had backed into their water spigot and broke the line so they had to shut all the water off in the park before fixing it.

Anyway, my brother was talking to his neighbor about the situation and the neighbor said he had been traveling somewhere with his TT when he got a ticket for traveling with a propane tank.

Has anyone experienced this? I've never heard it brought up on the forums. I'm wondering if the neighbor meant to say he was traveling with the fridge on propane.

Maybe the guy just had too much "milk" as he was dealing with no water. lol

There are places where you can't drive with propane like I93 tunnels in Boston. Try that and you will get a ticket, a large one.

You gotta be pulling my leg, do you have any idea how many RV's are on the road at any given time, every one of them has propane tank(s).
If they gave every one of them a ticket for that, they would get rid of the national debt.

Maybe an open tank where it is required to be closed.

There maybe a lot of RV's on the road but they are not traveling through the Baltimore I-95 Tunnels or they will be ticketed

Hi,

If the tank is in an unvented compartment it is illegal (and unsafe) to transport it.

In your part of the coast, and my part too, you are told to shut off your propane valves while on a ferry. I have been notified that they did check and found me not completely shut off (the fridge just sips) but that could certainly be the cause of a ticket. Certainly if they walk by your RV and they hear your fridge burner running, you are guilty as charged.

Just traveling with a propane tank isn't illegal and I'm sure you wouldn't get a ticket even from Barney Fife. There are some areas that they are restricted and certainly, you could get a ticket.
The carrier of the tale just took it to literally.

I always have my propane bottles shipped to my camping location.
