I wonder why? I can understand a concern of something knocking a valve off a propane tank causing a leak, but simply having something in the same compartment isn't a risk that I can see.

It's the logical place to store a gas tank. Remote from the rest of the vessel, vented/drained to outside.

Perhaps it was just the surveyors opinion.
