In my 50+ years of RV'ing and owning many RV's I've never seen that in any owners manual!

I make no claims about the likelihood of accidents.
The newer rigs (2002 or maybe even earlier) have a high flow prevention shut off valve. If the line is broken it detects the high flow and shuts down the flow almost completely. That's why you sometimes have to try several times to get gas flowing when you turn on the tank. Well known and written about safety feature.
