this forum got me checking and it turns out i was wrong and it is LAW THAT ALL PROPANE BE TURNED OFF AND ALL PILOT LIGHTS TURNED OFF IN RVS WHILE TRAVELLING. This is for some canadian provinces. The more i look it seems it is also unsured in the province of manitoba if the propane is on. Changes my mind i will now turn off and add ice if needed

And here we have the point. Detectable and concentrated enough to be hazardous are different levels. Lots of chemicals can be detected by our sense of smell at a much lower concentration than the concentration level that is explosive or flamable.

This site below gives some insight into what areas of a gasoline service station might be hazardous with respect to fuel vapors. It is generic but provides some logic as to what might be an issue.

Gas on/off while travelling

I run with the gas and fridge on. Truck runs on diesel fuel. Diesel fuel is not as volatile as gasoline and does not create vapor concentrations that are explosive. Ever notice that the big trucks at truck stops don't shut off the engine when refueling. I have a Dodge Ram 3500 DRW truck that originally had a 35 gal. plastic fuel tank. It was replaced 3 yrs. ago with a Transfer Flow 60 gal. tank that mounts in the same spot as the OEM tank. The new tank is made from aluminized steel and coated on the outside with undercoating. It is mounted under the bed and inside the frame rails.

You do not have to turn off propane in all of Canada despite what a previous poster said. Manitoba and one of the Maritimes are the only ones requiring that last time I looked.

About five years ago I traveled across Manitoba flouting the law and the Mounties never caught me. I remain unrepentant. We did have a good time in Moose Jaw, but that is in enlightened Saskatchewan.
