Sounds like everyone here tows with the fridge running. I have always shut mine down. I never tow xs of 4 hrs and everything stays cold. guess I'm paranoid but I don't like the idea of driving a closed vehicle ahead of a closed trailer where I won't hear an alarm.
Agree w/rockfordroo - gas cools faster.

I don't tow with the fridge running, either. First day we just through everything in a cooler. After that, it stays cold enough on the road. I have a remote temp sender I put in the fridge that I can monitor in the truck. It'll stay under 40F for hours.

I just had my DH click on gas and I heard it ignite and could smell a little gas and felt the heat. Hopefully it works on the way home. I only drive about 250-275 a day so things won't go bad.
Auto does just what it says. If electric is available, it will use electric. If not, then it will auto switch to gas.

Only if the electric is 110VAC. If you're on the road, it's only gas (and only if you've got 12VDC to run the electronics).
