RV boo-boos – Propane goes boom!

A little propane leak is nothing to “sniff at.” If you smell propane in your rig, GET OUT, shut off the tank or cylinder valves, and air it out. We don’t know the outcome for the folks with this rig—we hope nobody was home at the time.

I also had problems with the picture and I’m sorry Diane but the link you added did not work either. You need to just embed the photos (if you can get permission). I am not going to spend the time searching browser and security settings just to display one photo.

Sorry, Gary, and Crowman. There have only been two comments regarding difficulty with the picture, so I’m not sure what the problem is. There must be some setting on your device which is blocking it somehow. One of our IT folks explained difficulty in seeing our polls this way, and I assume it could also apply to a link to something on Instagram: “Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these try and turn it off and see if that fixes the issue.” In the meantime, I’ll try putting the Instagram link here, so maybe you can see the pictures: Have a great day. 😀 –Diane

The instagram link does not work either, it gets the message “Requested content cannot be loaded”. This has been happening to me for weeks on the RV BooBoos.

Shoot! I’m sorry, Richard. I don’t have an Instagram account and I don’t have a problem seeing the images. There have only been three comments that have indicated a problem, so (not being techy at all) all I can guess is there’s something on your device blocking it, like was mentioned in my previous comment regarding polls not showing up. I wish I could help you. I hope you have a good day, in spite of this frustrating issue. 😀 –Diane

I have to say that there must be some sick people out there. 278 “Likes” on Instagram.

The picture was just a question mark.
