These RV's were traveling with their tanks on. Did the people get out in time? Maybe yes, maybe no. I don't really know. What I do know is that I travel with my tanks off. I don't want to endanger other people or myself. Need we say more? Here is a tip from the refrigeration industry. If your refrigerator and freezer are full they will stay cold longer. Use crumpled newspapers or towels to fill in spaces.
