Yeah, it's not that it's a Word doc.. it's the size. One blank page exceeds the limit of 19.5kb! Dumb. An admin needs to fix this...

Just thinking about it for a second, I'd add two more items to a 21 interior. First, lock down the sliding table, and the second would be to secure the TV. I don't know if the Jack antenna should be facing forward during travel, but if so, then rotate it to face forward and lock it down.

Although the feature described (which comes in current valves which include OPD, but is not part of the OPD itself) won't handle the crash situation, there is yet another feature. If flow increases rapidly (such as in the case of a hose ripped off in a crash), a flow limiter severely restricts propane flow. This doesn't prevent fuel being fed into a potential fire, but it reduces the severity.

This is the feature which can make it difficult to start a propane system which has been depressurized: unless the tank valve is opened verrrry slowly the limiter see the rush of propane to fill the hoses and piping as a rupture and keeps proper flow from continuing.

Some do. I don't. Major discussion usually follows...

A substantial fraction of the discussion in the topic refrigerator deals with the topic of using propane while driving. There's probably little point in repeating it.

Yes, but a PDF file is better, since not everybody uses MS Word. Of course, not everyone has a way to save MS Word documents as PDF files...

Can you edit a PDF file? I don't think so.
Easiest is probably just to copy and paste from the post to whatever program you use so you can edit it and size it.
I was just saving key-strokes for those who might use it.

Well, I obviously don't take it so I have no idea what I'm talking about. HA! Maybe a good shot of Scotch would do the trick.

I just put Baglo's list in a Word document and it comes out to about 16 kB of content, but a 22 kB file. Unfortunately, even if the limit were increased slightly the forum does not support modern Word documents (which have a .docx extension), only the obsolete and bulky older format (which have a .doc extension)... and the old format version of the same document came out at 27 kB.

No, editing a PDF generally doesn't work, but I agree that someone who wants to edit and just copy the text and format it the way they want (from the text of the the post or a PDF document). Someone who wants to use the list as-is with formatting can use the PDF file without editing.

I do appreciate the effort. Attached is my version of the list... in PDF because I can't upload the Word version either, as explained above.

That's purdy.
Lot better looking than mine, and I was design editor at the paper for a number of years.
