It is probably not as big of a safety problem with a trailer as a MH....depending on where the fridge and gas tank are located. My fridge is located about 25' back from the gas fill on my truck. At that distance, gas fumes should not reach the open propane flame on fridge. Some MHs might have more distance, and some fridges might be towards the front of trailers.....a close distance is more dangerous than a longer one.
I am all for safety, but I usually don't turn off the fridge when when fueling......but I know I would be safer if I did. I am more concerned about the idiot that throws down a cigarette right beside my truck than my fridge flame that is 25' away, and 4' off of the ground.......gas is heavier than air, and tends to hug the ground.
