On the trip from NJ to FL are there any propane restrictions I should be aware of, especially bridges or tunnels in Baltimore area. Or would I be better off on Chesapeake-Bay Bridge?

There are in the Ft McHenry and Harbor Tunnels in Baltimore. I was under the impression that you could not use these tunnels with an RV, however I have seen some when I traveled that way by car. We always use the Scott Key Bridge (695 East) and follow that to 301 S. We cut back into 95 S at Carmel Church below Bowling Green, there's a Flying J there and it mkes agood stopping point. It's a nice ride through Fort A P Hill and you miss all the Washington and Baltimore traffic. I have never used 95 from Baltimore through Washington that I did not get tied up in so much traffic or stopped that makes it worth it. On 301 you can make pretty good time in an RV.

When you near Baltimore on I95 you cannot go thru the Harbor Tunnel with propane on board. You are directed around the harbor and over a bridge and then you reconnect with I95. That is the only problem area all the way down...

You can not travel thru the Harbor or Fort Mchenry tunnels in Baltimore. Take 695 Baltimor Beltway) over the Key Bridge and it brings you back around to 95 on the other side of Baltimore. In all my years of living in Baltimore, I have only seen maybe 1 or 2 RV's get through the tunnel. You can try it, but if they turn you away, you have traveled several extra miles to get back to 695 to go around.

With most of the traffic going thru the tunnel I think the Key bridge is quicker.

I just travelled to and back from the Outer Banks this week. I too took 695 around Balitmore and then when I got down to Norfolk and had to go through the tunnel there VADOT just requires you to pull over at the inspection booth to watch you shut off the propane valves. The same goes true with the Bay Bridge Tunnel. Have fun. If you are a early morning riser and leave NJ by 4:30am you can run 695East loop around Baltimore and just haul straight down 95 through Maryland, DC and into VA. Leave any later than that and you may get stuck in DC traffic, go for 301 from 695 to come out by Carmel Church. The Flying J is great down there.

Went through the Harbor Tunnel with my Class C Winnie by mistake (brain dead) about 4 years ago. Lady at the toll both gave me heck and then said to hurry up and get through. I take the Francis Scott Key Bridge now and 301.
