Yes, unless it's just a couple hour trip where it will stay cold enough until set-up at campsite.

My fridge runs 24/7 when there's food inside.

Same- all of the time for me. My fridge hasn't been off in almost a year except for periodically defrosting it.

This question comes up periodically and I think something like 80% of RVers drive with the fridge on propane.

IMO 80% is accurate...

I'm another one who drives with it on.

Yes, When under way, we check it at every stop to make sure its still running. We've found that on occasions strong crosswinds or perhaps a passing tuck has blown it out.

On my Dometic, there is a "CHECK" light. If this light is on, it means tha the flame went out, a couple attempts wee made to re-light, but they failed.

To reset this, I turn the frig of for a few seconds, then back on again.

Make it 81%... We also keep ours stocked and on at home between trips. It is running on propane while underway.
