But if you keep the boat closed up they can't get in.

Re: Propane system Question???

There is a threaded connection between the tank and the solenoid. I really can't think of any harm in shutting down the tank. That would be the safety feature that is closest to the fuel source.

I shut my valve if the systems going to be out of use for more than a day or two.
