Propane Safety Valve

My Rv has a selanoid valve adjacent to the 2w stage pressure regulator, which is wired to a detector in the kitchen. When it detects propane it signals the valve which stops the flow of propane to all appliances. I have noticed this valve does not appear on newer RV's. Is there another system for shutting off the propane now and if there is how does it function? While recently ordering a replacement valve from the RV mfger, the parts person happened to comment that the valve was almost obsolete but he still had some on hand.

Just about every spud in the propane system has a flow limiter installed. This means that if you have a high flow situation (leak) the system will automatically close down to the point that there is minimal flow. Guess they don't think a small leak over an extended time is dangerous. Go figure.
