I have been getting requests from Food Truck vendors about rules that are being enforced. See the below code reference in regards to LP gas cylinders. We should be consistent in our enforcement. Please chime in on your thoughts about the "weather protection" part of the code. Rain, sleet, wind, tornadoes, hurricanes? What do we want to see? Also, there have been talks about a regional inspection day. Any thoughts on this as I already have trucks wanting inspection.
(e) All LP-Gas container valves, appurtenances, and connections shall be protected to prevent damage from accidental contact with stationary objects, loose objects, stones, mud, or ice thrown, up from the ground or floor, and damage due to overturn or similar vehicular accident.
(f) LP-Gas cylinders shall have permanent protection for cylinder valves and connections.
(g) Where LP-Gas cylinders are located on the outside of a vehicle, weather protection shall be provided.
(h) All materials or devices used to secure LP-Gas containers shall be made of non-combustible material.
