Thanks for your input, i just went out to check to be sure of what i'm saying, you can not hold your hand on solenoid valve for 2 seconds without getting burned.There is no shut off for it, understandably so, so i'm thinking cut wire an when use it twist it back togther, til at least i travel back to dealer before yrs up, so far we haven't had any real issues, except dinning table fell apart ... we haven't used any LP, so i always keep tank shut off, would you agreee with that ? Thanks again

If you turn off the propane detector it should de-energize the solenoid. When store mine or it's not being used I usually close the propane valve at the tank and turn off the detector.

On my 2011 300FWS, the other blue hose comes off the discharge side of the water pump. This would be the pressurized side of the water system, prior to it splitting off to cold and water heater input

yes i guess so, only button on it is for test ... its a two in one deal, carbon monoxide an LP an is hard wired.. think i'll snip wire at solenoid at LP tank, and when i use it or heater i'll twist back tohther for now, my concern is if it's too hot to hold figures on for two seconds it must also be pulling alot of juice ...
