quick connect below fridge??

I have a seabreeze lx 8321 gas.
there is a quick connect below the fridge.
I took off the cover below the fridge and the line from the connector feeds behind the fridge. cant see where it goes from there.
Does anyone know what this is for??

Sounds like an add on. Possibly for a Propane Cat Heater?

This rig came from Arizona.
You think someone needed a catalytic heater, add on?
I don't think it is an after market propane connector. it would have required them to remove the fridge. there re far easier ways to add a propane connect.
it looks like an air hose connector, to blow out something??
but.... truth is, I do not have any idea so... who knows?

Pull your furnace grill off, and see where it goes.

I'd think it is an after market added on for a heater as mentioned above. Very similar to what I did on another motor home. Parts of Arizona get very cold. Not only the high mountains like Flagstaff but about two years ago it was cold enough to freeze pipes in my RV when visiting Tombstone.

Thanks for the picture's but those aren't going to help, picture's of behind that grill is what we need. Is it a copper line/flexable gas line?

It is a flexible line, not copper.
like I said in my first post: it runs behind the fridge, don't want to pull the fridge out to look

Send a message via ICQ to Fred and Bonnie
I suspect the previous owner hooked-up a catalytic heater, such as this one:
Olympian Wave 8 Catalytic Safety Heater - $314.99

If there is not a valve in that gas line there needs to be one. Don't bet your life on the quick disco always stopping gas flow.
