My gas valves are closed while the camper is sitting in the driveway, unless I am running the fridge in preparation for a get away.

Been a camper since I was a kid, and that was a long time ago :)
From pup tents with no floors, to tents with floors and flies, to a pop up, to the expandable.

I keep mine on, but my trailer is here in the yard and kept plugged in most of the time.

I keep mine ON all the time. I came home one day and as I was getting out of the car I heard a hissing sound. After looking at all my tires I discovered a squirrel had eaten a hole in my gas line. I was glad to have found it before I got to a campsite and tried to turn something on. Would have made a nice explosion if I had not discovered it when I did.

On the other hand if the valve was shut of there would be less chance of a fire or explosion while the trailer was unattended.
