We run an extension to the camper the night before and load up the fridge. When we connect up in the morning to leave, we switch to DC. If we stop for just an hour or so on the way, we leave it on DC. Longer than that, we switch to gas.

This is the way most people do it as I, Plug in at home and switch to propane on the way out.

DC does work but you better remember to switch to propane upon arrival if you use it.

I guess when stopped and no electricity available switch to gas propane.

Would like to know if others travel this way and any tips that could be helpful.

The charge line from the TV may or may not prevent the battery from draining. It depends on the voltage delivered at the plug from the TV at that current draw. I wouldn't count on it though.

The simple solution is to run on gas. That is what campers with two way fridges do, since there is no option for 12V only. If the fridge burner blows out on the road, then use the 12V setting.
