The quotation from rules quoted in an earlier post stated "bottled...". Motorhomes normally have a tank, not bottles. "Bottles" and "tanks" are treated very differently, so does this mean that if "propane" is banned, we can't go through, but if "bottled propane" is banned, it does not apply to motorhomes with tanks?
I realize this is similar to my earlier post, but I'm still unsure.

Thanks for any light that can be she'd...

Not sure about the other tunnels but the rule I posted from Maryland DOT specifically says RVís are not allowed due to their propane and it says that anything more than 10 pounds per Ďcontainerí is prohibited- bottles, tanks and anything that holds something are all Ďcontainersí. Thatís pretty clear.

Yes, they do. Anyone want to deny the laws of physics? Check this story about the explosive nature of propane in low lying areas - Google "1963 Coliseum Explosion" On Halloween night 1963, more than 4,000 spectators were packed into the building for a Holiday on Ice performance when, during the finale, there was a massive explosion. A leak in a valve supplying propane to the popcorn warmer was responsible for a blast that sent bodies and piano sized chunks of concrete flying 60 feet, killing 74 and injuring more than 400 people.


We were supposed to go to that show a couple of nights later.
