When you say set to both, do mean "Auto"? Ours is either Off, Auto or Gas. In Auto the unit detects the 120v and switches to ac. When ac goes away it switches to gas. The Gas switch means gas always.
As far as turning off while traveling, there is a whole thread on this site about what people do. I leave my gas on. My DW and I just returned from a 4000 mile trip pulling the TT. If I turned the gas off I would be better off removing the fridge and adding an ice chest rack in its place.
I don't know how full my tanks are from that trip (have not refilled yet), but I think one is still 100%, and the other pretty low. Used gas for fridge, cook top some, oven some and the heater few nights. As Old Coot says, you can run fridge on gas forever.
