Question 1986 AS 345 MH Magic Chef Shut off Valve?

Me again!!! Does anyone know if there is a cut-off vavle for the range top inside the 345? I have looked and see the gas line going into the wall but not sure where it goes from there. I would like to cut off the supply to do some maintenance plus shut off the pilot light. Hopefully it is not just the main valve at the tank!! Thanks for any response/help.
Jim

Cutoff Valve

There is no cutoff valve on my '87 345 except for the main valve at the tank, and the valves internal to the range.

If you need the range top to be down for maintenance, it would be very easy to cut and flare the copper gas line behind the cabinets, and install a shut valve.

As an alternative, the line to the range is exposed and accessible on the bottom (roadside) of the coach, just behind the step assembly. A cutoff valve could easily be installed there also.

1986 345 MH Magic Chef Cutoff Valve

Dennis,
Thanks for the reply and I guess I can stop looking for a valve. I will probably install one externally, that way it will isolate LP to outside. Thanks
Jim
