Ian

Last time we made this trip we handed over the gas bottles at the boarding point, and picked them up at the other end.

We took our camper trailer over last year and the gas bottles were fine if they were connected, i.e. plumbed to the camper. They do check, in fact they do a very thorough check of everything. Kevin

We just came back today.They check the engine compartment for old rags, crook wiring etc. Our inspector even found a dead rat one time. As said only loose gas containers of any description have to be checked into the special trailer. They are looking for items that could cause or assist a fire. Not good on a ship.

Hi Ian,

Just leave them as is and when the inspectors do a check of your vehicle let them know. They are only concerned about the loose ones which campers use for stoves and lights, also loose butane canisters.

Tassie is a wonderful state...hope you have a great time there.

Regards,

Heather
