What do you mean by 'manifold'?
How did you 'discover a gas leak'?

Yes RV propane gas valves can leak....but remember LP System Pressure is only 0.39psi (11"WC)
So rare for gas valve to leak thru

I traced to manifold connected to valves using gas detector and liquid leak detection. Also I did this by taking the valve assembly outside the RV and connecting to the gas line. The manifold is past the valves.
