You may not have found anything wrong in a inspection as propane is Farley high pressure and any fitting could be bad > but you can check hose line by looking for weather checking (cracking or other sign of wear) if found replace when not in use cover lines rubber will be
aged by UV just like tires Also for added safety shut down all gas at tank when done using for the day hot water tank will hold temp over night and will only take a short wile to get back up after restarted

Hi Gang! Just wanted to check in with you. I've been offline for a
week. I had something happen in my RV that I'd like to share with you
guys. Maybe this has already been discussed and I missed it but if it
hasn't it needs to be passed along for newbies like me.
I had people staying in my RV last week.( my house is only 2 bedroom
and really small so had to put them out there.) One night they came
rushing in wanting to know where to shut off my propane. They told me
that they were sleeping and heard this loud boom like a gun shot and
then they smelled porpane really strong and could hear a hissing
noise. Well lucky for them and me I had the propane only going to the
cooking stove. I hadn't lit the hot water heater. They quickly got
out of the RV and inspected the propane bottles. The rubber hose that
is connected to the male fitting that connects to the propane bottles
had blowen off and propane was spewing everywhere. This scared the
H___ out of me!!! I could have blowen up my daughter and grandkids!!
Isn't there some kind of safety thing to put on the propane bottles
so this kind of thing doesn't happen. Are we to inspeck things like
this every year and if so what signs do you look for? What other
things should a newbie be told to look for to keep safe? My gosh what
would have happened if the hot water heater would have been lit?
