If your coach has a "Gas" switch then it has a remote shutoff for the gas from the tank.
You should also have 2 switches for the water heater:
1 to run it on gas
1 to run it on electric
(unless you have one of them there "tankless" water heaters)
When the water heater gas switch is not on, gas is cutoff to the water heater by an electrical solenoid operated valve.
Same thing for the fridge: when it is on "Auto" and you have 120 VAC the gas can't get to the fridge because of its electrical cutoff valve.
And when the thermostat is not on "Heat" (or if it is and the temperature is above the setpoint) no gas gets to the furnace because of its electrical cutoff valve.
