Not recommended to lock up access to propane cylinders.

By whom?

Propane locks are quite common these days with the crime that goes on anymore,infact Torklift sells propane locks for RV's and every propane exchange I have seen is locked..No different than locking your portable generator..

My understanding is it’s ok to secure the cylinder in a way that prevents theft, but you’re not supposed to prevent access to the valves.

Common sense would dictate locking up the box while say in the store or eating dinner then unlocking when around..A deterrent only as most security devices are...

I have never heard of any law on locking or access to the valves on propane tanks..If there is one,please post the link....

I only threw in the possible locking the box as a possibility for those that need more security with extra propane tanks as in mounted on the bumper/deck of aTC...Lots of people either remove or lock there tanks while in storage..

NFPA 1192 that pertains to RV's. Not going to spend $50 to read a copy.

^ That’s what I suspected was behind it. That and the RVIA standards, that the manufacturer has to follow if they want the RVIA sticker on their units.

I actually like the box enclosure, it’s no different than the LP compartment on my TC, but I should also point out that the LP compartment door latches can’t be locked, and there’s a sticker on the door clearly identifying it as an LP storage compartment.

In the event of an emergency, first responders to an RV related incident are going to look for and turn off the valves on the LP tanks first thing.

I don't believe that..If that was true it would be all over the internet especially with enclosed propane tank systems.Nothing says or tells you that you cannot lock your propane doors on a TC...They warn you about everything anymore to the point of stupidity so if a lock on a propane device was dangerous or illegal,it would be printed everywhere..

I think it is more of an internet propane police issue..Laffin..

Common sense for me would be for someone to be able to shut off the gas valves in my absence should the need arise . As a side note I find it interesting that lately on rv.net that if your opinion differs from the new leaders of the pack you receive a demeaning label , the latest being propane police .
