So, all this concern about safety and fire, how many travel with the propane shut-off? It would seen that problems would be more lilely when moving, than when stored.

We do not travel with the propane on, at all. Fortunately, if it's a short trip to our destination, the fridge stays cold. If longer, we use solar to keep it running.

Probably a good idea, but i dont do it. How many shut off there grills at home? Good idea to do it if you want to. Definitely safer. Especially if you have hungry squirrels. Oh and get the braided lines, then you dont have to worry about the squirrels!

When it's in storage you aren't there to smell it or hear the LP alarm to take any action and mitigate a disaster.

I believe by the time you smell propane in a moving RV, it will be all over but the bleeding.

Me too. Also, I always shut off the propane when not using the rig.

This post make no sense at all. The reason they add the smell to the LP is for safety. But I guess if you feel the need to post something....
