LOL,

We wrap out LPDs with "RubberTex" during cold weather. (throw back to A/C dealership days....it was used on Freon lines.)

Mine has caps on them as well. However, they are very difficult to remove.

On the other hand, I find that the receiver they screw into is *much* easier to turn and let's me loosen the cap.

You were right. It's behind the side wall in the garage. King nice this way. Other trailer had the caps at the ends and sometimes we're hard to get to. This seems much easier

The good thing about a shut off valve in the basement, They won't freeze up, or you do not have to insulate the bottoms so they don't freeze up when your camping. They should put in shut off valves on units for as cheap as they are. It just nickel and dime stuff.

Here they are the round flat ones, the other is the joint that we put in to pull the lines to install couplers otherwise you couldn't do it without pulling the water pump.
