2 newbie questions

We are at a camp ground in chilly South Jersey and have been using the heater every morning so we are consuming propane fairly quickly --- I'm told to refill our propane we have to un-hook the motor home and drive it about 200 yds. down the road to the fill station --- Is there another way, say with a portable propane tank , to avoid having to un-hook ??


Question 2 -- On our way up from Florida we went through the Baltimore tunnel on Rt.95 -- There were signs saying " No Hazmats " and I think I saw a sign that included propane as being restricted --- No one stop us or questioned us when we stopped to pay the toll after going through the tunnel -- But when I decide to return to Florida, I don't want to go through the tunnel if it's not permitted -- so -- How do I bypass it ??
Any help would be appreciatede ---

Take the I695 beltway around Baltimore.

East I695 is shorter, but there is a toll at the bridge.

Question 1 - Get an Extend-A-Stay kit. It will let you attach a portable LP tank. The only catch is you will need to find a safe place to carry the tank if you intend to take it with you. You can also usually rent larger tanks from the LP dealer.

Also, by buying an additional hose, you can turn the Extend-A-Stay into an Extend-A-Flow, which lets you attach a propane grill to your motorhome LP tank.

Question 2- I don't know specifiaclly about the Baltimore Tunnel, but most times "No Hazmat" means no bulk transport of hazmat. We crossed one bridge (can't remember where it was) where they made us pull over and shut off the tank valve. However, it's best to chack in advance if you know there will be a tunnel.

The 695 beltway is a big circle around 95 and has an 'inner' and 'outer' loop and I've never figured out what that differentiates (I don't think it means inland vs. ocean side like I originally thought). In any case, east is the Atlantic ocean side. East is shorter but there is a toll for the bridge but I don't remember how much ($4.00 maybe?). Be careful not to miss the 95 south exit as I did last trip - you'll be going east, then south, then west, then north (that's when I realized I must have missed the exit). 695 is a nice ride with little traffic - in my mind it's worth the detour anyway. Good luck.

According to this Propane Regulations vehicles carrying over 10 pounds of propane are prohibited from the tunnel.
