What were you told during the training course? Are we supposed to only transport on the road with an empty nh3 bar? I know they made it illegal to transport with the hose hooked up awhile back. Do you have one of these tank connectors? If not buy one and put a bleeder valve on it. Yes the hose from the tank is still charged with nh3. I always disconnect it and point it away. Treat it like a loaded gun. Does your hose that draws from the tank have a breakaway on it? I usually try to unhook tanks with a crosswind so if something stupid happens I won’t get nailed and the tractor won’t either
Only 3 legal ways:
1 Truck pulling no more than 2 individual tanks in tandem.
2 Tractor and toolbar pulling 1 tank.
3 Truck or tractor pulling 1 trailer equipped with side by side tanks .
Edit: I don't remember it giving a gallon limit on the individual tanks but I think some of the individual tanks in the area are somewhere around 2000 gallons. I doubt that pulling 2 of them would be legal, but I think anything over 3500 gallons requires a haz mat license, that was covered earlier in the training.
