Gas shut off

I was wondering if there was a shut off for the gas stove or range in my 88 bounder? I want to check the furnace and I noticed a couple of the metal gas leads to the burners fell off and need to be tacked back into place. Figured I would shut the gas off at the stove and try the furnace to see if it worked. Thanks.

Hi vman60........The shut off is on your LP tank,turn clockwise to off..
light the stove to burn off line gas..do your cleaning and repairs then recheck for LP leaks. and follow instructions to relight. also disconnect 12 volt source while doing this..

I was wondering if there was 1 designated just for the stove and not the entire coach. I figured there would be a shut off for the stove by itself to isolate it from the rest of the appliances.

Not that I'm aware of in this age of MH. You will be fine by just turning off the propane and disconnecting the 12 volt source. As She and I stated make sure you bleed off the excess propane in the lines. You should be good to go.

Unless a previous owner had one installed, there are no separate shutoffs for any of the gas appliances in your Fleetwood.

Not sure which stove you have but if it is the tubes that go from the burner valves to the burners these probably just slip into place. As long as they are after the valves you should not have a problem with leakage.
Posting a picture will help us understand your problem.
