Tell all about my camper

I had issues with the stove top. Leaking propane gas. In order to fix the lp fittings I had to shut off all the appliances. What got me was I could not just disconnect the stove. The manufacturer of this camper did not provide separate valves for each propane appliance and they should have. The entire lp supply system had to be shut off disabling the hot water, fridge, furnace and stove. Beware of features like this when buying a rv . If you had a propane fueled generator this to would be shut off.

I do not know of any RV that has individual appliance shut-offs.

I too have never come across an RV with separate shut offs for gas appliances. I really see no need for them since the system is so small.

On the stove, turn the valve off at the tank, disconnect the fitting at the stove, install a plug in that line, then turn the gas back on.

I have owned RV's since the late 70's and there has never been a shutoff valve at each appliance. This is not a requirement for the RV industry. You just shut the gas supply at the tanks and that is it.

A fridge MAY have an intergrated shutoff on gas control valve.........

Stove/oven will have a separate pressure regulator but no shut off

Water heater/furnace...NOPE

Idea WHY..........
When working on RV LP System it is 'best practice' to secure ALL means of propane supply at the source.

My 1973 Dodge Landau has black 1/2 inch pipe and individual valves for each lp appliance. That's what raised my question. I didn't realize the new rv's are void of the valves.
