Can I paint LP gas lines?

Hi everyone,
Just a quick question. I want to know if it's ok to spray paint my LP gas line under my camper. I see some rust and I thought about spray painting it with a can of krylon.

Make sure you MARK them with yellow tape every few feet. So nobody will try solder or fix that " water line"

I painted my lines the first week of ownership. They looked just like your pic, though I saw worse on other trailers on the lot, especially ones built in the winter. Must have been towed down when salts were on the road up there.

Before spray painting, I used some emory cloth and fine sand paper to knock down the surface rust, then cleaned with some paint thinner and microfiber towel.

I used the higher quality industrial black spray paint from Home Depot.

I also hit the little bits of surface rust around the tongue, frame and axle hardware.
