Re: Propane valve

Bullet proof is good. The near part not so much.

Good point.

Although, the uninterrupted line itself is only near bulletproof (chafe, mice, rot, etc)

Not me, but many boats do over the winter. Don't ask me why they really seem attracted to propane lines, but they are. Good reason to be sure your lines are in tact during spring commissioning.

Re: Propane valve

I rewired a boat that had mice living aboard - they were gone when I arrived.
They will chew anything and taste doesn't seem to have anything to do with their choice.

Re: Propane valve

I doubt they would die. After they chewed a hole in the hose the propane would just encourage them to move to something else, like a tasty wire.

With the solenoid closed there wouldn't be much in the line and it's pressure would drop quickly.
