In cold weather we use propane while traveling, in hot weather where the dash A/C won't keep us cool enough we run the generator and roof A/C so we run the fridge on A/C as well. Before we leave we are hooked up to power in the driveway and pre-cool the fridge on the house power then switch to either of the above when leaving. Once at the campground we run the fridge on A/C, we don't dry camp much but if we stop over night at a rest area we use propane for the night.

I had been nervous about using the propane while driving but after almost throwing up after taste checking the creamer a few weeks back we now travel with the fridge on propane.....it smelled okay but perhaps a big gulp and swallow was a bad "check it" procedure......

We always run propane whilst driving/traveling.
Have never thought twice about it.

Never seen nor heard of no propane on while driving through tunnels or over bridges. Are their propane cops stationed at the entrances to check everyone before they go thru/across??

I've never seen any "propane cops" but recall seeing the signs on tunnel and some bridge approaches around NYC. Post 9/11 there's been a lot more concern about this.

How many of you turn off the LP fridge when going through a gas station?

I know many people leave it on, and I do it too. But technically, I don't think it's allowed.

Well, I don't think a little sign that says "no propane" is going to stop someone from driving through a tunnel if they want to blow something up. I realize there was a lot of hysteria after 9/11, but I can't see the signs being a deterrent to a motivated individual or group.

Just saw someone the other day gassing up his car while it was running. I used a pump far, far away from him. Although it probably wasn't far enough.
