Valve or no valve


After much searching I have decided to ask. Do I really need individual on/off valves to each appliance and do they go outside or inside and do they need an elbow or can I just use a flared copper fitting land bend copper when needed. Installing them seems to creat more opportunity for leaks and I could just turn the gas off from the tanks if I have problems. I'm trying to simplify.

Also any good books or sites for complete instruction would be appreciated.

You don't really need them. I agree the potential for leaks is there when there is a valve.

The furnace and stove come with one, so I used it. The fridge, water heater, and gas lamp do not have one. You have a master shut off on top of the propane tanks.
