Hi to Jayco forum members

Just wanted to say hi been camping for 20 yrs. plus .Just bought a new Jayco 317RLOK traded in Keystone Cougar 281EFS nice camper hardly any trouble at all with it. The dealer is out of Cogan Station Pa. did a good walk thru took care of a few problems..But all and all satisfied with everything...
I have been reading some of your threads and I feel confident that I will get a thorough answer to almost any question. I just wanted to ask 1 stupid question? are you allowed to go thru tunnels on highways ,as long as you have gas OFF?? I was told it is against the law... Yes I couldn't believe how much stuff we accumulated over the years we just have to downsize and thats the way it is. We hope to get out soon (May). You fellow campers have a nice weekend (whats left of it).

Hi to you new forum member.

Congratulations on the new Jayco and welcome to the JOF.

Good question about propane. I believe there are some tunnels where transportation of flammable gasses is prohibited. I don't know where and I don't know if it applies to RVers. Hopefully we'll both learn something about this.

Hello and welcome.
Most of the restrictions regarding traveling through tunnels with propane tanks are along the eastern United States and (our Canadian neighbors can clarify this) I think Canada has some restrictions in areas as well.

The laws usually cite a size restriction and they do include RV's. Most RV tanks are underneath the size restrictions and the only requirement is for the Propane tank to be in the closed/off position.

Welcome to JOF, especially to a fellow Pennsylvanian.

Nearest propane restriction I know of is the I-95 and I-895 tunnels around Baltimore; you're not allowed to take the tanks through the tunnels, no matter whether they're on or off!

Here's a link with more info:

If they are not allowed, there will be signs noting the restriction. It's a good idea to avoid tunnels if at all possible in a RV.

Here in Virginia there are tunnels that require the propane be turned off before entering. The Hampton Roads bridge tunnel even has an inspection lane and booth that all RV`s with propane must stop in to have their tank valves checked to ensure they are off.
