I can see how a motorhome can be an issue since the refrig is more near the center of the vehicle and close to the pumps. A trailer should not be a problem.

I pour Belvedere & vermouth in a shaker before we leave the house, put it in the fridge & when we get to the campground I have a martini “shaken not stirred”
Just joking
I almost always enjoy a carbonated beverage right from the camper fridge while setting up & have never had one foam up on me.

We have never had an issue with our beverages either except "contents may shift" comes to mind.

When they fall on the floor after opening the door the first time after a long trip at least you know which ones to let sit for a while

We don't have that big of a problem with items shifting in the inside frig. but the outside kitchen one was always a mess, I cut some soft foam inserts the size of each shelf. Put them in when when we travel, take them out and store on the top of the frig. After all don't want to break my $6.00 bottle of red wine. ddc4c

Hi,
I am new to the forum and popup camping. I am purchasing a 2007 Rockwood HW256. My question would be why would you not run the refrigerator on the 12v system while traveling and then switch to shore power or propane when you get to your destination? Since most people seem to run it on propane there must be a good reason.
Thanks.
