I don't know. My natural gas lines at home are soldered but trying to solder in the close confines of the trailer especially with the smaller diameter of the tubing seems to be more than what I would like to deal with.
The other thought is that the soldered lines in my house don't move. I wonder what the integrity would be of a soldered line in a moving, flexing trailer?
