How does this affect battery life? I have been trying to use the battery disconnect every time I leave the coach..
Good practice to use battery disconnect when not in use. To cool refrigerator, turn on battery and propane. Purge air from propane lines by lighting stove burner briefly. Then turn on refrigerator. I would do it the night before. We park in a storage yard and I often do that if I'm not bringing MH to the house the night before. Refrigerator uses very little battery power and will not be a problem on an otherwise healthy battery.

Don't wait until day of trip to cool down if you have 100 degree heat. Much better the day or evening before.
