Same for me , last winter we made around 8000 km in the south of US and always open!

However when I put gasoline, fill the tank and it is hot with a lot of gasoline fume I close it and open it back after living the fuel station!

While many of you travel with the propane on and the fridge turned on it is illegal to do so in British Columbia Canada. So we travel with it off. Even after 8 hours on the road everything was still cold and ice cubes and ice cream had not melted. When we stop for a lunch/nap break we turn on the propane (usually an hour stop.)

Do you have a link or anything GD? We are going to BC next weekend; and it would be good info to know.

I looked and couldn't find anything; just this pdf which only talks about turning it off when refueling.

I have read it somewhere... but can't seem to find out where. Will keep searching. I also read it was ok but check with ICBC first and I read that Dangerous Cargo regulations say shut it off before travelling. Can't find it on ICBC website yet and can't figure out the dangerous cargo rules. So I will keep looking.

Here is a link I found for regulations. It says you can travel with it on. Sorry for the misinformation. However ICBC recommends shutting it off.

I think I just found it:
http://www.drivesmartbc.ca/rvs/operating-rvs-propane

The article it links to does not specify propane; but I guess better to not risk a ticket.

Thanks for looking- I found it by adding some of your key words to my search.

Most of our trips are under 2 hours so we'll pre-cool and load the fridge a couple days before travel and turn everything off for the trip.

Nice to see from the chart that it is legal in Ontario when we go for that longer trip.

The references in that article have nothing to do with RV's. They even goes so far as to talk about proper proceedures for transporting propane cylinders in your vehicle not an RV. Also the BCSA is not a government organization but an independant organization. There are common sense things like shutting the propane off if you are on a ferry long tunnels etc. But not a thing on actual law as it relates to daily driving on BC highways.
