From what I've read, just turning the fridge off shuts down the open flame behind the exterior fridge panel and greatly reduces the risk of ignition of gasoline fumes.
Obviously there are a lot of opinions on this. I started running with the tank valves closed when I broke a suspension spring on my fifth wheel, and somehow a propane line running in the wheel well got snagged in the tire and snapped off. It was on the passenger side, so I didn't see it happen. A passing driver flagged me down and I pulled to the shoulder. The check valve did prevent propane from spewing out, but since then I drive with the tank valves closed. Better safe than sorry, and we've never had the temp in the fridge increase more than a few degrees on our 300 mile daily drives.
