My uncle said his friend's brother-in-law's cousin talked to an acquaintance whose friend's dad heard of a fire at a gas station once but he wasn't sure if it was because a fridge was running on propane or not.

If that's not enough to scare you straight about the dangers of propane RV fridges, nothing will.

My propane is on from May to September. Sue me.

Sorry for not digging into this a bit more.. I was just saying what I was told by the dealer when we got the new trailer..

I managed to find this one, which lists all the provinces and states and towing regs for each.. There are lots of things that vary from state to sate and province to province..

It is from 2010 though...
2010 Driving Laws for the US and Canada

This one is from the Canadian Propane Association
Propane Safety | The Canadian Propane Association

And a 20# tank BLEVE in a house fire...

Each to their own I suppose.. I don't leave mine on, some do.. Both sides have good arguments each way..

We leave home with a fridge & freezer full of food. Were going close to 1000 Mi. Now just what is supposed to keep everything cold without the gas on? I don't stay in the high rent RV parks every night, so no chance to plug it in to get it cold again. IMO, without the fridge on gas , I would be screwed.
