there are many propane tanks protected by a thin piece of sheet metal and at the height if they were hit in the side the propane tank would take the worse of it


It seem me that the odds of being hit in the SIDE at high speed is far, far less than the odds of being hit in the back.

Really, man, if you want to do stupid things, be my guest. Just remember to always utter the words; "Hold my beer. I wanna try something." first.

every R V I have looked at has a lock on doors where propane bottles are kept


Both RV's I have owned that had bottles in compartments did not have locks from the factory, latches yes, locks no. That is until I replaced the latches with locks. Your Northern Lite did not have a lock either when it rolled out the factory door, not that it means anything in the whole scheme of things.

When I read these types of threads I often wonder how some people can overcome their fears enough to ever leave the house. You never know when a blue icicle may fall from the sky and bean you in the noggin.

I also lived in Las Vegas before it turned into a extension of California evaporative coolers do not work there anymore. To many golf courses and swimming pools, the humidity is to high for them to be effective. they still work in places like pahrump Boron and Ridgecrest California.

close the thread all I wanted was some advice on carrying extra propane, this is ridiculous, out of eight pages I think I got only a couple of helpful hints. there are some who will not run their referigators on propane when driving even though that is why they were built to run on propane. For those of you that were honestly trying to help me solve a problem , thank you. as for the rest good night
