Near your entrance do you have lighted switches that turn off battery power for storage of the RV so batteries don't get drained? (Sometimes called the 'salesman switch) In many RV's there are two switches, one for chassis power and one for house power. In mine, by turning off the chassis power it also turns off the LP solenoid, gas sensor and CO sensor. I turn it off when fueling and the LP is shut down as per safety.

We put the grippy liners in the cupboards. We have mostly Corell plates, saucers, platters, & bowels. If anything comes out of the cupboard it wont break. We also put stuff in the microwave too. If you have a troublesome cupboard door you can use appropriate size bungy cords to secure the doors.

The red highlighting in my post answers the red in your post. NEAR THE ENTRANCE (DOOR)!

Your question in blue highlighting is answered by the sticker in post #26. I really know what I'm talking about because gas fumes and open pilot light flames don't get along well with each other. Proof can be found many places, I witnessed the proof at a gas dock on the Chesapeake Bay in 1967. If you think my posts have been hard to understand, you should try reading some with no punctuation, spelling, or sentence structure!

Look at your fuel tank filler.
The sticker says it all.

If you turn everything off, it will be fine. Just remember to turn it on again when done.

I don't do that, I simply stop the engine.

Regardless, if you do take the advice to turn off the refrigerator every time you stop for gas, you will be fine.

Advice is just that. Take the advice you think is best and go with it. Don't get too confused about different advice. Do what you think is the best for your situation and don't sweat the small stuff.

One thing is for sure, you will continue to learn new things each trip.

He was confused enough. He has a 96. He cannot simply turn off the engine.

What should be done and what people do are not always the same thing. The sticker Campdaven posted says what you should do. Only you can decide what you will do. I do not travel with propane on. My refrigerator stays cold for 5 or 6 hours - probably more. Before we unhook from electric refrigerator operation - we make our lunch. Have it ready for fast access and shut the door quickly. Even though the fridge uses very little propane - I see no reason to burn if I don't have to. We have remote thermometers in the fridge and freeze and monitor the temps. If I think I need to turn it on I hit the generator button.

On the other hand, because you have a 17 year old coach, it may be good advice to have your LPG system inspected by professionals, if that has not already been done.

Over time you could develop issues where leaks could happen. Especially with any rubber tubing, etc.

Also be sure you have all your smoke and gas detectors checked and in good working order.

Yep - annual maintenance - shop check is inexpensive.

I don't know what model of 1996 Winnebago you have, but in all the 1996 manuals I looked in under Safety Precautions subsection Fuel and LP Gas it states: "All pilot lights must be extinguished and appliances turned off while refilling the fuel tank or LP tank."

1996 Operator Manuals

If you take the advice of folks suggesting you don't need to turn off the flames burning during fueling, I hope you have good insurance, medical and auto.
