Gas appliance flex lines

I was painting the kitchen. I had to pull out the gas stove with a flexible line. Pushed stove back in. Did the same thing once then next day.

Then I realized, your not supposed to reuse them... how about move them? Im paranoid now.

Squirt some soapy water on it. If there are no bubbles, it should be okay.

This is just my opinion, I've moved many a range or cook top in my day and never had a leak.
I take reusing as connecting to a new appliance, not reconnecting to the existing.

For me, new appliances always get a new line and existing uses the old line.

Why would you not reuse them?
No leaks, not an issue.
That's why there there.

When you replace the appliance.... you are supposed to replace the flex line.
You can pull the appliance out and disconnect it for service with no ill effects.
