Fridge

Will the fridge run off just the battery or do you have to have gas on or be plugged in?

If you have an rv fridge you need gas and battery for gas operation and for shore power you need battery.

Gas + battery for gas mode
Shore + battery for electric mode.

Most of us plug the RV into shore power and use electric side overnight.
Then switch to propane side while traveling.

Only those of us who store at home.

Those of us who store in a storage lot have to light off the gas the night before.
