Make sure gas is on and turn fridge to auto.
As soon as you unplug it will auto switch.

Unless your going through tunnels in the east then keep on truckin!

Its suggested to turn it off if refueling tv.

AC will not work unless hooked to shore power. Traveling with the propane on depends on what state and specifically where in the state. It is a raging controversy, about 80% say yes, 5% no, and 15% don't care one way or the other. I travel with it on.

We travel with the gas off, both for safety and legal reasons. Have not had problems keeping thing cold even on the hottest days, as long as the doors are not opened until we reach the CG.

Is it illegal in WI to run with the propane on?

We have a power disconnect on our TT. Does that need to be closed to run the Fridge when driving?
