Propane and plumbing lines

Looking at Class A's and see a lot of floor plans with propane a new water lines in slide outs. Seems like a bad idea to me. It seems like this would present more opportunities for trouble, compared with static propane and water lines. Am I missing something?

I've always thought the same thing, lots of bending and flexing and a chance at kinking something. I had heard a few tell me to keep away from the kitchens in slides a few years ago. But considering how many there are now I guess they might have improved things.. Or did they....

They use a approved flex metallic or plastic fittings. I had both in a slide for 10 years, never an issue.

Thanks for the info. VinceU. I am trying to discipline myself to stay with the current rig for 8-10 years, but there are several A's in a similar price range with this setup up that I like. When and if the time comes, I guess I can look at these with more confidence. Happy New Year!
