In a residential garage, ignition sources need to be 18" off the ground.

Can't stand filling at stations with gas, always some clueless person in the way.

The day before we leave I switch the fridge on to electric, just before we pull out I switch to propane and that stays on till we reach our destination, then it goes back on electric until we leave the campsite to come home or go to another camp site then it's back to propane, until we get where we are going I don't shut it off when we get gas a meal or any other reason until we get home. Seems like scare tacktics like not filling a plastic gas container in the bed of a pickup because you might get a spark, It's plastic how is that going to cause a spark?

same as Jayco. if worried about it, probably stay home and worry about all the dangers in the home which are far more numerous.

My propane is on right now outside setting in my shed even though the fridge is off. . (I forgot to shut it off after my last trip.)

I tend to discount many things as rumor, urban legends and myths. But I have been shocked by my plastic gas cans, I have had the static on them make the hairs on my arms stand on end, and I've had the displeasure of visiting friends in the burn ward of the hospital. Static electricity in plastic gas cans is a fact. You should always put the can on the ground, and always keep the nozzle on the side of the fill neck so it cant builds up a charge and try to jump the gap.
