So: I'd like to hear from folks who have attached stuff right to to the front of the A/S for more protection (I've seen threads that mention cardboard, bubble wrap, etc.). What did you do, and how well did it work?
All the copper tubing, underneath the trailer, should be wrapped and protected with foam tubing that is used on pipes.
Those rocks can crush the underbelly copper tubing enough to more than restrict the proper flow of LPG.
Some may say yes, others may say no. The best thing to do, is make sure that it "cannot happen".
