Propane leak FW owners might want to check yours.

Racing motorcycles we boondock in every type of weather. This past weekend was cold, 15 degrees at night. When I swapped the regulator valve to use driver side tank to keep the furnace going, I had a strong smell of propane. Quick check with some soapy water revealed a hole in the line that crosses over thru gen compartment. Luckily I leave my tank valves turned off until I need them or would have found it empty ! I was able to swap the full tank over to the passenger side and carry on with our frigid camping. It appears FR was in to much of a hurry or cheap to install grommets where the line passes thru. I will order me a new line and install grommets while I have it out. If you have a W&P FW... might want to check yours.
