Was at our propane dealer yesterday buying items to fox my issue. One the options was to stay with high pressure tion and buy smaller tank. I asked him the price ($75), and if ok to carry that in my RV. He said any thing bigger than the small through away tanks are supposed to be mounted outside the RV to be code.
First it didnt make sense to me but then I remembered that the tanks for 5th wheels are outside and that is the rason.

It would have been helpful if he (the propane dealer) had referenced the specific text. How did he define "inside"? Did he happen to mention how you might be able to get a refilled 20 lb. tank home in a car? Did he mention how you might relocate your current onboard propane tank (which, by his comment, must be "inside" the motorhome)? I think you can see that specific definitions are necessary.

I think the key to safe storage/transportation is adequate ventilation, ability to disperse any potential leakage downward and to the outside, storage of the cylinder in it's intended position (upright for 20 lb. cylinder), and storage in an unlocked area accessible to the fire department.

Would I store LP "inside" the RV ... meaning within the area considered to be driving/living space .... no.

If you keep the tank in the bay that has locks then you are violating one of the rules. Correct? If not in the bay and not inside the RV then what is other option?
