Once you turn the gas on the line is pressurized but it will contain mostly air until you vent the air out. We would shut the valve off at the heater then disconnect the gas line then turn the shut off valve back on until you smell gas then turn it back off and reconnect the line. Be aware that propane is heavier than air so it can pool in low spots. Best to wait 10 to 15 minutes to fire up the heater if the gas smell near the ground lingers after you have reconnected the line. Be sure to check your connection for leaks.
