This site is great! There is a ton of great info for a noob like me. Going from the original question, I was planning on putting dual 30lb cylinders enclosed under a small table in the back driver side area of my truck. Is that a no no?

I'd doubt your local officials would like it. Your fire department, would be the first to object and your local HD may also.

Thanks Doc. I guess I'll contact the HD and see what they say. That really puts a damper on my progress....

Here is how you may be able to do it. If you had a completely inclosed area with a door for access from the outside I doubt there would be a problem. In fact if it were an inclosed area with a door on the inside it might pass. Just depends on your local HD and their attitude. You may be lucky and your health department may just say that's not our area, we aren't the propane inspectors. . And then if you don't have to get an inspection from your fire department you'd be good to go. One other thing that you have to keep in mind if you do events, you'll always get inspected at events and some things that may pass in your local HD may not be ok with the HD in the next county. I know that sucks but I see it all the time.

Thanks a TON for the info. With what you said about the completely enclosed area with an outside access door. In your experience, that still 'might' be ok or it would be ok? I know you can't say 100 percent but I in no way want to re-route tail lights and rear running lights at this stage if at all means possible. <--which I would have to do if I was going to put the cylinders on the bumper...

I would think it should be ok but your local guys are going to have the final say. If your asking me if I'd gamble on it and hope I got thru the inspection process.....yes I'd give it a shot. But you don't have much choice do you? Don't rewire and reroute all that stuff if you don't have to. Make everything else perfect so they have to say ok. LOL Good luck on this one.

haha I like your thought process. I'm still a ways away from full completion but I'll let you know. Everything else in the truck will be immaculate. Hopefully they'll 'overlook' it.

Best suggestion is to not look here for a plumber in a very specific part of NJ-perhaps craigslist would be a better bet or even talk to the plumbing sales people in your area to see who they would recommend.  Good luck!
