RV furnace while driving

Here is what one furnace mfg. has to say about using furnace while driving.

This is from the Surburban website:

Can I use my furnace while driving?

No. Suburban does not feel this is a safe practice. Some states have laws forbidding the use of propane while driving. You should be sure all gas appliances are off and the ignition systems are off while the vehicle is in motion or being towed.

More info @ Airxcel | Suburban Manufacturing Service

I asked my service guy at the dealership about running the propane fridge, he said it was no problem. The thing is, propane is highly flammable. If you were in a crash and a gas line break occurs, what are the chances of a fire igniting; with LPG tank valve open? With tank valve closed?

Thanks for the manufacturer quote.

It's the same story, don't travel with the propane on.

Fred... so as a question. Is it a safety concern running with propane on? I am new in RVing and would really like the ability to decide for myself as to my risks.
