I agree, toss and replace a safety item. People replace their tires in case the have a flat and cause $$$ damage to the RV.
If the valve fails (probably small possibility) but could cause a fire and possibly loss of RV or worse.

Yes that's true, but tires have a known safe useful life that is simple to measure. I wonder if these valves have a similar life expectancy. None that I am aware of.

There is no known life expectancy. They will last until they fail[emoticon]
There is no manual or bulletins that state to replace Gas valves at certain age limits. Doug
