Here is the I'm proper (read as improper) way to store the dispensing nozzle for LPG. The line in the background is the propane hose line to the pump in the foreground.

West-Southern Inner-Northeast ...
TG — A couple of 23¢ worm-drive clamps for fastening the hoseholder to one of the grounded conduits would assure a safer, non-sparking installation.

The gray can with the deep hinged cover at the post top looks like it may contain a 30-50A receptacle for a “hookup.” Personally, an RV or trailer with a short cord could be a "problem."

I don't have a copy of the NFPA 58, but I believe those sylinders must be (10? 25?) feet from combustibles, including vegatation.

Walrus- Those boxed look like NEMA-3R (raintight) to me.
Would this stuff be required to be explosion-proof? How big must the tanks be- and does this apply only where you are pumping LPG?
I'm not being silly- I note that LPG vendors are x-proof, but no households are- and some of them have some BIG tanks!
Incidentally, NEC defines the zone as 20 feet from the tank.

It looks like a disconnect switch, by the bulge in the front, or ??? It's 3R, not EXP.

Interesting thou, there's a sealing fitting on the incoming conduit, a EXP switch, and a EXP J box at the motor/pump.

All the fittings look like they are class 1 so the reasoning behind the Nema 3R box at the top of the pole seems to escape me. looks like the seal-off under the start/stop would have been alot of fun to pour. The motor seems a bit out of place as well.
