Reefer on Gas

2010 5th Wheel flagstaff. While towing will the reefer run on gas if the 12 battery is disconnected?

No, the fridge requires 12v to run.

However, your emergency brakes also require 12v to run. If you're disconnecting your battery, make sure that your emergency brake away still functions.

yep, ependydad is correct, fridge won't work and you'll be violating the law if the emergency brakes have no power.
