I just traveled on the 295 north from DC. The Baltimore Washington Pkwy was a little busy at 4pm but very do able. Also went through the Baltimore Harbor tunnel, No problems ?? I'm driving a 2500 ram towing a Bighorn 5th wheel. 13ft, 3 inch tall truck&trailer =60ft.


Hi I'm new, I have a 33'cougar.30amp with one AC down in the LR. We are suffering so bad in the front BR. There is only one dinky vent up there. Can I put a small ac in the BR vent hole?I have a fanatic fan there.(itsso loud to have on). Any suggestions??

Beware if going through the tunnel with lp. If you get stopped law enforcement will ticket you or force you off the highway onto surface streets in downtown baltimore...Or both!
Now there is no guarantee you'll be stopped just like there is no guarantee a speeder will be caught speeding. However break the rules and there is always a chance you will be caught!
Depending on the time of day you could find yoursel in a congested mess. Propane is not permitted in Harbor or Ft. McHenry Tunnels.

My MD house is on Aviation Blvd at the airport and for years I traveled the parkway every weekday both directions and still do when I am up there. Timing is everything but I can leave at 6 am and be in Springfield VA at 7 going straight through DC in my car. Parkway, 295, 395, to 95. I have also pulled trailers up to 43ft 5er and a 32ft enclosed car trailer behind my DP on the parkway, takes longer. Coming off of the Baltimore beltway, to me, it is far better to take the Parkway but if not at least a little familiar take I-95 and east side of I-495--I-95 around DC

Since the Baltimore tunnels are a no-no with propane, I will do the Key Bridge and 695, then get on I-97. From there, that runs straight into MD 3, which is about 10 miles of not a freeway but usually moves well. Then, depending on the time of day and traffic, either use US50 to cut west back to the 95/495 Beltway, or continue down US301 and the Nice Bridge over the Potomac, and pick up 95 just north of Richmond.

Why is a guy from the valley bumping an eight year old thread about driving in DC? Feels fishy to me.

Feel free to DM me and chat about whether you're a spammer or not.
