I have no idea the rate of lp related fires per rv crash but I'd bet it's pretty rare. Maybe a "safety expert" or "crash engineer" will chime in. Seems like there's an abundance of "experts" on the forum.
I think you are on the money. On the other hand, as you observe, we probably have one, or two?, "safety experts" or "safety engineers" that can chime in and "set us straight"? Javi, I know you are an engineer and appreciate that...not one word of this post has anything to do with you....I appreciate you so just tune this out.

When propane tank is heated in a fire it starts venting it's gas and adds to the fire. We watched a boat burn to the water line in 1990. As each tank vented the fire flared up a great Neal.

Just one more of the "what if" possibilities of living everyday!
If it was so extremely dangerous they wouldn't build them to run on propane at all.
