So you're trying to tell me that you didn't recommend locking propane cylinder access or perhaps condone the practice.

Yes I am,my post meant that was an option and as mentioned above,I also would mount one on my bumper and lock it from thieves if need be.But that's just me and I am not recommending it.

Instead of trying to pick my post apart and getting personal about it,why don't you contribute to this thread and the opp that posted it...

This thread should close. Ignorance abound.

I think I have contributed to the thread. Although the thread has morphed from installing propane tanks on bumpers to locking cylinder compartments. I have pointed out that the NFPA restricts locking propane compartments; something many posters, including, your self were unaware of.

Furthermore the NFPA specifies the proper locations for hauling or attaching propane cylinders on vehicles. And I can assure you that hauling a propane cylinder on the rear bumpper is not one of them.

My point is to simply discourage someone doing something that is unsafe in my opinion. And that is to mount a propane cylinder on a bumper or lock a propane compartment.

But as usual there are those that want to argue an opinion, and will get their way by trying to shut someone down as your quote is trying to do.

Unbeknown to you, I have contributed to this post. Much more in a positive way than you have. Encouraging someone to do something that has inherent safety hazards is downright irresponsible.

I think a couple of us should get together here in Idaho and do some fishing/drink a couple cold ones and discuss truck campers in person..I am always open to forum members stopping by to see the sites Idaho has to offer but you might have to help get some firewood but I am furnishing the drinks..

If your short on time,I can point you to some beautiful country you can visit with your TC..

These internet arguments should not happen but the offer stands..

Thanks, I might take you up on it this summer when I'm back in Oregon. For now I'm enjoying the Florida sunshine.

I had a class B that caught on fire, it had a 20 gallon propane tank and full of gas the gas tank and propane tank vented off lost the r v but no explosion

Bare in mind, even the title of this topic is misleading, we are talking about propane CYLINDERS here, as only those can be used with TC.
Lot of members can't catch the difference, but propane tanks do have safety valve.
Propane cylinders do not.


Wrong......!!!

Propane TANKS....Motorhomes ---have a separate relief valve
Propane CYLINDERS...trailers/bbq even the one pound bottles ALSO have relief valves
The OPD on cylinders have several components
*Internal Float to stop filling of liquid propane at 80%
*Spring Loaded shutoff valve so NO propane can flow if pigtail not connected
*Fixed liquid level gauge (bleeder valve)
*Safety Relief valve......which is one reason cylinders need to be Vertical so relief valve is in vapor section and NOT the liquid area

And how is the year of the TC relative ? lol


By the references to the older valves without pressure releases..This topic is about possible mounting a propane tank on the rear bumper/deck of a 2019 Northern Lite..

10 pages in and people don't know what the post was about..It went off topic almost immediately...How sad for the opp...


OPD with relief valves have been required since 1998 mfg date
Any cylinder older then 12 yrs has to have recertifcation inspection done which requires it have an OPD

ALL pressurized vessels have Safety relief valves.....even that RV water heater which operates at much lower pressure than a propane tank/cylinder.

The exception is horizontal propane cylinder manufactured prior to October 1998..They are grandfathered in although not all people dispensing propane are aware of this.

Yes...correct OPD grandfathered
But even horizontal cylinders have RELIEF VALVES
