One thing that mitigates that fear is that all propane bottles (after 2002 ?) have safety shutoff valves to cutoff flow immediately when a line is cut...

in fact, have heard of some people complain that when they turn their gas ON it doesn't flow because they opened the valve too fast....

We turn off the LP at the bottles whenever on the road.

I leave mine on to run the gen to cool the trailer before arriving at our destination. Back in the day with the propane fridge it was always on to keep it cold while travelling
