I have overnighted in a rest area a couple of times between CG's 24-36 hours between power poles.

Never worried because it was running on propane.

We have the residential fridge. It has made it to Florida with an overnight in truck stop. It pulls power while driving and had no issues overnight on battery power.

I have run mine from Ohio to Yellowstone and back a couple of times with no problem while on the road you engine alternator will keep the bat tires charged and the refer is running off the inverter. Mine can go about four days on the battery's only.

Residential frig will stay cold all the way there if you don't open the doors!

Andrew:
With your new unit, you should be able to run forever. As stated, the batteries will charge as you're driving and when you're not driving your house batteries probably will run the res frig for a couple of days.
How'd you make out with your problem with Dylans?

Dylans will not be seeing us again. Forest River has really stepped up. When we upgrade, it will be into another dyna.. would be nice to get them on board with our Sportscar racing team, maybe as a product sponsor? :-p
