With the 3 way fridge you are not forced to . The DC side works .

Does this run down the tow vehicle battery? Or does it pull DC from the camper battery? In that case.. would it be a drain on the camper battery?
I have a 2014 Rockwood a122s.

If your tow vehicle is set up properly the 7 pin charges the camper battery from the tow vehicle ! I have traveled as much as 8 hours with the refrigerator on battery with no sign of battery discharge on the trailer.

I agree. We had no drain our our tow vehicle battery. We have a three-way frig, we put it on Auto, turned it on, and it worked like a charm.

You know. . I'm not sure I have a 3 way fridge.. it's a 2014 Rockwood a122s aframe. I haven't had the cover off and looked in the access panel for awhile. . I might be thinking of a previous camper.

I guess I have a two way refer, gas or elect. It stays in the auto position. On gas while traveling and elect when plugged into shore power. Why is everyone scared to travel with ref on gas. Am I missing something.

Everybody has their own phobias. We always run with the propane on but have friends who go to great lengths to NOT run with propane on. Just their phobia but it makes them feel safer and they are happy in the long run. That's what matters.

The great thing about the 3 way is you have another choice ! You people with 2 ways are limited to drive without or drive using gas.

That is very true. There are occasions when I miss our pop-up and the way it could go anywhere the truck would go, but then I sit in the recliner until that passes
