gas lines inside

I'm installing new gas lines on my '62 Bambi. I'm adding a large holding tank in the back, so I cannot run the gas line all the way back to the fridge under the RV.

My plan is to supply the stove and fridge from a tee off the water heater. This means however more gas lines inside.

Is there any reason I should not do this?

Thanks,
Kamo

there is a very good reason to not do this Boooooom!
If you run the lines inside and have aleak it will pool in the belly pan. Eventually the gas will find its way to some source of ignition. Furnance or Water Heater, possibly the fridge.
Bad idea.

I faced the same problem. After much consideration, I ran the gas line all the way to the other side, then along the side of the wheel well, then back across to the water heater. It was tough to avoid the tank, and it took more tubing.

But I can sleep peacefully.

Let the "big bang" theory stay with the astronomers.

ANY AND ALL copper tubing inside of any RV, must be kept to an absolute minimum, as stated by the American Gas Association.

Don't even think about it.
