Grey wolf 29BHS

We just purchased this and have only used it once but had a question on traveling with fridge on. Does it just run off battery or can the propane be used while driving?

It needs the battery (which needs to be hooked up for the brakes in case of a breakaway) and propane which actually provides the power to cool it.

Is it safe to travel with propane turned on? Sorry for the dumb questions. I need to find the book "Camping in a TT for Dummies"!

My DW actually found that book, but the people on this forum are WAY more helpful!

It's not all that complicated, just all very foreign. It's a house, a car, a boat and some uniqueness, all rolled together and you almost have to understand all of it to make any of it work.

your fridge is a 2-way fridge. it runs on propane or 110vAC shore power. it uses the 12v battery to light the propane.

it doesn't "run" on battery power. that would be a 3-way fridge, which is usually only found on popups, since they are much smaller in size.

and the majority of RVers travel with the propane on.
we do if we have a long drive. but, it'll stay cool until we get to the campsite, if we have a under 3hr. drive, without running it on propane.
