If you bleed the line there should be no need to shut off the regulator, and it will save you time finding the right spot when you turn it on, unless you are disconnecting your tank, (which will reset the regulator anyways)
I was told that this was not a good idea, due to the pressure in the hose coming directly from the tank. (Since the pressure would be equal to the pressure in the tank, I.e. HIGH). Is there a special type of hose or pipe that used to do this? Is length limited?

Thanks again for everyone's help
