    Water & heat are run through system not sure if power should be shut completely off or not due to water pressures?

    You will need to reset it after the propane is refilled. The tech will usually want to walk the house and check all appliances before turning the gas back on.
    No harm in leaving the boiler on or off under these conditions. You may want to run the pumps if you are concerned about freezing.
