copper pipe identification

Good day everyone-first post. I have a '76 Boler and am about to start on a rehab process after i have gotten sufficient knowledge from this great forum. To start with, the above picture shows a copper tube in front of other pipes going to the water tank below the floor level. In the other direction, I believe it goes through the floor to the inside of the left rear wheel and then forms a tee with other propane tubes below the furnace. It must be for propane, but would this be for some sort of water heater? I would not think that there would be accomodation for one underneath.

Secondly, you can see three wires, two black and one red. Currently I have no battery setup, but what were these originally for?

Thanks again, Barnaby

Thank you Donna for the kind reception. I did some further investigation and soon discovered that the copper propane tube was in fact the feed for the furance-a bit of a Homer moment, when a very dim bulb managed to illuminate.

The three wires I referred to under the seat originate close to the tongue in the front here:

They were for a front battery install, I assume, I just need to know what they would have fed under the left bench. Thanks again.
