Fridges with 12Volt power are usually just the small (2-3 cu ft) that come in popups.

Frig On While Driving

Have not pulled er in a few years and cant remember if that's the proper procedure. Figure with it on Auto, it'll switch over to tow vehicle electrical during transport. Went thru manual that came with the fridge and didn't find answer. Appreciate the help

Really looking forward to the new Roo.
Hope trip to dealer is not too long. It's risky to travel with the propane value open.

You know the RV battery has to be charged for the fridge to work, right?

Yes, I think the frig needs 12 volts to operate the gas flame control.

But I don't think you can use the 12 volts from the tow vehicle as the OP suggested he had planned.

Doesn't the 12 volts come from the TT?

Was just reading this post to pass the time...Wow, didn't know any of this stuff.. Thanks to all of you..
Used our NEW Road Yacht only twice, and already discovered the dealer we bought it from in Picayune, Ms. will not take responsibility for anything, not even tightening the ball on the receiver hitch they sold me !!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, there is a learning curve to this camping stuff..
