Ideally, there are two places propane is never used. Boats and basements.

While I know millions of boats and homes with basements, use and depend upon propane, one thing stands clear, strong and unwavering; it is not ideal. Ideally, propane needs a place it can dissipate and not collect, should a leak happen.

Be safe.

Yep! That's what propane lockers are for. To keep the propane on the outside. With a locker, shut-off valve and a sealed hose system all should be well, as long as it's maintained!
