if we are going near by say 45 mins we get the fridge cold while plugged in at home then leave and turn it off till we arrive. The fridge is as good as a cooler so it stay plenty cool, when we drive for two or more days we run gas while rolling

Bear is my man !!!!

I'm with BEAR, turn the fridge a couple of days before you are to leave, load it up the night before with cold "STUFF". The next day you will be A-OK for your trip with the gas on.

Like Bear says, BEER WILL BE COLD WHEN YOU GET THERE.

Once the fridge is at the correct temp. I will load it up as quickly as possible. I travel with the propane on without any problem. I haven't been hitched while filling up the TV gas tank.

If the fridge is not cold enough I will keep the cold food on ice in a cooler. My TT is stored off site so unless I bring it home the day before a trip the fridge does not have enough time to get cold enough before departing.

i run with mine on as well.
seems like i read that u are to run with it off. i think i read that in the frig material but just as easily have read it in a forum.
what i read suggested that the frig would stay cold several hours after being brought down to temp and shut off.
my thoughts is that that is a legal statement in case there is a fire.
there are several safe guards built around the burner (especially if u have one of the recalled units that they installed the "fix") that will shut down the burner if the flame gets out of the burner area.
i have never had the flame, on the frige, go out while driving. i have had it go out while i was hooking up before leaving. most likely due to not having the air completely out of the system before leaving. i usually check the frig several times before i leave and during the first stop.
