Propane hookup

Got tired of hitting my head when I had to crawl under the trailer to hook up my stove for outdoor kitchen- so with $25 of pipe I moved quick connect to inside of outdoor kitchen Click image for larger version

Exclamation

Propane police here.....35 years in the fire service so I just had to note this scares the hell out of me:

Propane is heavier than air. You are putting this in an enclosed compartment with 110v receptacles in close proximity. Air + Fuel + Ignition Source in the right mixture = Boom

Just be careful, you may want to mount a second propane alarm as a mod.

X2 that is why they removed the quick connect hose on the Rockwood 8289. It is inside the trailer itself. Did you use white teflon tape for the joints?

No I used the yellow for gas tape do you think I should try and move it to the outside? Dealer thought it would be ok because some tent trailers have them inside - thanks for your input

Thought about that - that's why I put a shutoff in the line that will only be open when outdoor kitchen door is open. Propane leak detector will be reinstalled in spring and other outlets will have blocked plugs. Any other suggestions?

At work, some of our confined spaces have ventilation fans that remove possible gas buildup in low areas. If you were to decide to do something like this, it wouldn't need to be a large fan for the area you have it in. 3" or 4" fan.... Maybe do a mod for a door switch with the door closed and the batteries on.

The only thing that I would think about is moving your shut off valve outside, Then if it leaked it would leak to outside. Other then that you would only have the valve on when the kitchen door is open. As you said you will have block offs on the electrical outlet.
