Or
Remove fridge gas line back at the 'T' and install a pipe plug...done

No 'brazing' required as RV LP System is screwed together from TANK to main line to 'Ts' to each appliance...screwed together


All the above.

I installed a cap. Done.

I've never seen propane line brazed. Copper plumbing, yes. gas line, NO.

Like Old Biscuit says, RV Propane systems are generally all screwed together.

Inverter flare cap or plug.

I'm in the middle of installing an inverter, which required removing my oven/stove unit. I needed propane heat in the rig, so installed a cap shown at this point in the video

I later removed the cap, reconnected the copper propane line and then installed an inverted flare plug on the piece of flared copper tubing that I reconnected where I had the cap.
