I run the gas on for the frig & the furnace in winter travels. Both have DSI electronic igniters instead of pilot lights so there no pilots going out.

There are trucks on the road that are fueled by propane so what is the difference.

For any rig running on propane the biggest difference is the propane is burned internally.

Similar happened here in the Black Forest forest fire. One of the preps for a forest fire evacuation is to move all your propane tanks (except the large household tanks) to the front porch or landing, where firefighters know where to look for them. Propane tanks can and do explode under the right circumstances.

We use a small inverter 12v to 110 which is wired to coach batt. Plug into inverter while driving. Never had a batt problem. My inv is 400 watt.

Since I have a residential refrigerator I do not need to use any propane when pulling the trailer.
On my other two 5er's I di use propane for the refrigerator since they were a dual source unit. But I would shut the propane off if required when entering tunnels as required by law.

Depends on my travel route as Ferries and tunnels require it to be off.

I turn mine off when refilling the LP tank and when I'm going to be in storage for more than a couple weeks.
