Using propane while on the road in your RV is a great way to save power. It’s important to understand basic safety practices for transporting, switching, and otherwise handling your propane cylinders.
This video shows how to switch out an empty cylinder for a full one and how to transport an empty cylinder safely. Regulations state that enclosed vehicles can carry up to three 30 pound propane cylinders, provided they are secured properly. It is recommended that they be transported in the back of a pickup or using special holders on your recreational vehicle rather than inside a vehicle such as a car or station wagon. In the summertime, or when it’s hot outside the temperature can increase the pressure inside the tank which can result in the pressure relief valve opening. Do not store propane tanks inside of an enclosed car.
