A clear and present danger. But then if you're not gonna secure the propane tanks, why bother with the safety chains?

The only thing missing is Wile E. Coyote and the ACME plan for the super propane boosted travel trailer!

I bet he was in such a hurry to get out of the way of flash flooding he just took off without checking anything or even hitching up completely.

True experience. My tank came loose while driving and dragged on the road. Finally got pulled over by a state trooper who noticed it. I looked and the tank had been ground through. It did not explode just lost all the gas. 50 bucks for a new tank and some different bolts with nylok nuts to keep it on.

It could happen to you. Towing with a dually you would never know you were dragging the bottles. You can't see the tongue or the bottles for the tailgate. Let's use this as a warning. Check your equipment

No, they are still attached to the cables but farther under the trailer dragging along.

LP cylinder hold-down clamp and all-thread missing, battery box missing, no WDH bars. I agree with ctbruce, probably stealing the TT, and was nearly caught in the act.

Tanks didn't blow, they weren't secured in the cradle.
To be eligible for the Darwin award you have to die from your stupidity. I don't think that happened in this case.

My first thought also. Too many things wrong.
