Propane is a very flammable gas, that's why it makes a good fuel. Combustion under containment is an explosion. Propane tanks can leak but it's usually the hoses and fitting that are the problem. Even a small leak, over time can cause sufficient accumulation for an explosion to occur. That's why propane fixtures have to be ventilated. That's why propane must be stored outside or inside with appropriate ventilation. That's why many parking garages don't allow propane fueled vehicles entry.
A battery, or the electrical sparks they can produce, is an excellent ignition source. Consider a butane lighter. Sparks produced by a flint are used to ignite a stream of gas. Without the sparks the gas won't ignite. Without the gas, there is no fuel to burn. In either situation, no combustion so no problem.
The same works in this situation. Even the best gas installation can leak and those who use gas need to address this potential. Even the bast electrical installation can spark and this potential also needs to be addressed. In a situation where there is a potential for flammable gas leaks and an ignition source, the only effective way to address this hazard is to ensure the two potentials are physically separated to prevent the gas from accumulating to explosive levels in areas where sparking may occur. This is why propane tanks should never be stored in the same containment as a battery. Separate containments will allow any leaked gas to dissipate into the air and prevent its accumulation to explosive levels in areas where sparks may be produced.
Consider this perspective, if you store a propane bottle in the same containment as a battery, you are effectively building a home made bomb. It isn't a question of CAN this explode or WILL this explode but, rather WHEN will it explode and at what consequence?
if you go to you tube and search our latest mod. u will see someone doing just like me. not one comment about bomb except by me . yogi yogi. watch that video and u will see exactly what I'm doing

In general two batteries will get you more juice than one (there are exceptions). Difference is two 12s are hooked in parallel while two 6s are hooked in series. Some 6s are engineered to be more "deep cycle" than most 12s of relatively same size. They are all heavy.

Don't want to see anyone get hurt. Gas explosions can be catastrophic!

I use 12v batteries and I find I get more total run time using each battery individually than connecting them in parallel. I suspect the batteries equalize and that's the power loss process. Although they are the same batteries, they may be ageing differently?
Some folks say you get more power from two 6v batteries rather than two 12v batteries but I've never been able to figure out the math on that. The way I see it is if one 12v fails I have 1 battery to replace. If one 6v goes I have two batteries to replace.
I hadn't considered that the 6v may be more deep cycle and thus be able to suffer more abuse, interesting point!

yes that is why I'm going 6 volt route. because they can go lower than 12 discharge and still be ok. putting 12 v that low discharge over and over destroys them?

Maybe no one there commented on it but several others here have tried to stress the safety aspect and are ignored

Is it just me or am I to lazy or incompentant to find this video!!!

Why don't you just post the url for this youtube video if it is a must see?

The reason accidents happen is because someone always thinks that they are the ones that can get away with it, and then they become the victim. You have two volatile gases, and a single spark can set them off, be it a spark from a wiring problem, a chain dragging on the ground, battery dicsonnect switch or static electricity. If it happens just one time you can never say it is safe again. Do you check your tank and hoses every time you disconnect them or ever for that matter for leaks. .

Here is a propane explosions, thought it was safe to transport in the back of their car, how much propane had to leak and not smell it in the car.KBOOM.

I suggest you busy yourself with creating passwords.
You could also work on punctuation and capitalization.

There are thousands of hours of video posted to YouTube every day.

The video will have a URL. It's in the header. You just copy and paste. Nobody will have to search.

Especially when search results on YT like any other platform will be different for different people depending on their previous searches, location, etc.
Algorithms... ;-)
