On all the time, never worry about it. It stays in automatic mode; turns on propane when I unplug and turns it off when I plug back in. The Crusader stays plugged in at home. Not sure what all the hoopla is all about, but there are much more riskier things we do with our RVs than run with the refrig on propane like traveling below the speed limit with interstate traffic. More apt to have an issue there before an issue with running the refrig on propane. By the way, has there been any incidents with modern RVs running there refrig on propane exploding at gas stations? Just wondering.

I only crack the propane valve and then only if I am going below 66 MPH. If I am going to go above 66 I keep it off to keep my china bombs cooler.

I also keep my mirrors on my TV tucked in to save a few mpg. What can I say. I am a rebel and like to live on the edge..

Just kidding. I have always run with the old ice box on...even when it had a pilot on my older unit.
