Stove and Cook Top in Slide

I read on another RV list somewhere that someone did not like having propane lines like the ones that serve the stove and cook top located in a slide out.I have been trying to avoid such a configuration while looking at potential fivers.

Have any of you ever had problems with propane fed appliances being in a slide out? How serious of a potential problem would you say it is?

Thank you,

Mine is in the slide-no problems.I see no more trouble being there than in a none slide location.

Propane in the lines going to the slide is low pressure, not like the pressure at the tank. Flexible lines, like those going to a gas grill are pretty tough and proven to be safe. It wouldn't keep me up at night. If it really worries you, add another LP detector under the counter.

I have never heard of a problem with stoves in slides. Sinks, yes, more clogs, refrigerators, yes, Norcold fires seem to happen more often in units that are in a slide (it has to do with ventilation), but never anything about the stove.

All 3 of my 5ers have had the stove in the slide. Current one also has the fridge in the slide. No problems.
