We store our tt at a storage yard. The night before leaving, we put frozen cold packs in the freezer & fridge and run it on propane. Next day about noon, the fridge & freezer are at max coldness. We put our chilled food items in, hook up and leave. We run the fridge on propane while traveling. Have had no problems doing it this way.

fridge stays on from end of March till early November. Just restock what we need before a trip. Turn on fridge in outside kitchen few days ahead of time and fill with drinks. Plenty of cold beer on hand when I get to campground.

Before or After

Fridge stays on all season. It is plugged into house electric between trips. Only perishable items are removed. Eggs and milk. Cupboards are left stocked. We have two of everything one for camper and one for house. Like Noah everything in twos. If the whim moves us we can be on the road in an hour or less

5th wheel is stored at a storage lot, so we put the fridge on propane as soon as we pick it up, drive it home, load up with food/drink (and a couple of ice-packs if it's not cold enough yet), and then leave it running while driving to campsite.

On our old pop-up, which was kept in the garage, we used to just hookup power the night before and run the fridge on electric (didn't want it running on propane in the garage), and then fill up before leaving (with some frozen goods in the fridge to help keep it cold while driving). We just disconnected before leaving home and let the cold stuff inside the fridge keep it cold.
