Having something ice cold is just not worth the risk.
I agree. We seldom log more than 8 hours on the road, but even in the July heat, we found that the 8 cu/ft Dometic was still very cold and the frozen food was rock-hard at destination.
For years, in many jurisdictions (most of Canada and many States) it was illegal to travel with the propane vales open. It is still illegal to board many ferries with the tank valves open.
Fueling up with gasoline with a propane appliance in operation is dangerous and not recommended.
To each his own, I guess. Fortunately, we all have choices about how we choose to manage risk!
