Travel with gas on, fridge nice and cold when I reach my destination. I don't turn it off until I park the unit back at the storage lot. Like someone (think it was OldCoot) mentioned, in the east (Va/Md) you have to plug over before entering tunnels and they check to make sure gas is off. Once you reach the other side you can turn back on.

I never take mine off of auto. When I plug up at home, it's powered off of Elec; unplug to go camping, the propane lights. The most effort I put into this is to listen to make sure the propane lit before taking off.

I turn my fridge on in May and turn it off in October.

We drive with LPG on all the time except when using the Washington State Ferry System. It keeps the water hot and runs the fridge (at least it will when I get a new one next week!). The cooling unit failed on the original (11 years old), leaving the dreaded yellow powder deposit round the base of the flue.

Ah, well, just another $1500 or so into this POS.
