X2, I see all the time on here that the fridge will stay cold. I guess this is relative but I know from experience that it does not take long for the temp to rise above 40 degrees, the safe temp for food in the fridge. Feels cold to touch but not safe for eating.
I know this because I had a trailer that when traveling the small flame operating the fridge would keep getting blown out. I discovered this by monitoring the fridge thermometer I had. I noticed the temp would be below 40 degrees before I left on a trip. When I arrived at my stop the temp was hovering around 50 degrees. I called Dometic and they had a baffle kit that they sent me to eliminate the problem. Obviously Dometic has no problem with operating the fridge while traveling as they have a fix for the problem.
So I used to operate mine when traveling (now have a residential fridge). I think hmmm... Trailer fire or food poisoning
