Propane is always on for the fridge. Also I leave it on in the winter to run the furnace so things don't freeze up when I'm heading south.

Question: I would like to use my propane to cool my fridge the night before I leave for a 4 hour trip. Do I need my battery hooked up to precool my fridge if I have my fridge set on auto? I have dual tanks, so if I run out of propane it should automatically switch over.

Yes. The fridge controls and igniter run off 12v

If you're hooked up to shore power, why would you precool with propane when you have 110v AC power?
Save the propane and use it for enroute if you want.

I have my camper in storage so no shore power is available. Does the pilot flame ever go out during travelling if I decide to leave the propane on?

Mine never has in 10 years.
