If you turn off the frig, how is it calling for a spark.....when it's off?

WDK, read it again. I was agreeing with you.

JUST turning off the LP doesn't make it safe because the reefer will still spark. You HAVE to turn off the fridge to "safe" the system.

....still kinda confused on the wording....hehe but your exactly right shutting off the propane means my igniter will try to lite the frig 3 more times before it shuts down and waits for you to turn the frig on again.

So, another question: how long will the coach battery run power before it drains? Assuming I leave it on overnight to cool the fridge.

That depends on the size and type of battery you have, but if you are cooling your fridge overnight, I would do that with my rig plugged into the house. Doing that, your battery is moot. Your rigs converter will provide the 12v current needed to run the fridges control board and such, and your reefer will use the electric element for cooling.

On edit: It will also be charging your battery so when you are ready to pull out, you should have a full battery and cold reefer.

The fridge does not need much power to keep cool, over night when it will most likely stay closed the battery should be fine.

Yeah it's the batteries amp hour rating .....if you frig draws 10 amps per hour and your batteries have an 8 hour amp rating then they will be dead in 8 hours assuming your batteries are perfect but you frig only runs off of AC or propane and you would need an inverter to supply the AC and having that in the mix you could bet on 7 hours or little less at the most.

Incidentally, using propane and just supplying DC to the control board then you go for days depending on how much DC you are using through out the rest of the coach.
