Travel with propane on?

I'm looking for everyones opinion on traveling with the propane on. I've had different service men tell me yes and then some no. Not sure what to do. It would be nice if you can to keep refridge cold but would rather be safe then sorry. Help

There are numerous discussions on this issue on other RV websites, as well as here.....this being 1 of the most recent: Gas to fridge while moving?

After reading the thread, it will be your personal choice whether you want to do that.

BTW, I travel with my propane on.

It's a personal call.
Some swear it's dangerous.
Some swear it's not.
I run with mine on.
The fridge is made to run on LP when on the road
as well as when camping without electricity.
I like my beer to be cold so I leave LP on.


Let the battle er I mean "discussion" begin!!

Sorry, I guess the ones that have been on here for awhile have gone through this already. I'm trying to learn how to get around on here to find things but not doing a very good job. I have a hard time trying to figure out how to post.

If you don't like the subject matter, don't read it. There are new forum members everyday looking for information and ask valid questions, just as you probably did when you joined. Besides the fact new members may bring a broader range of information to the forum. This annoys me to no end when senior members go "oh hum, haven't we discussed this already". I, for one, read most topics and if it's a repeat subject, it just means more information. Isn't that what this forum's intended purpose is?

There is a green bar with menu picks on it right below the "Splash screen" but above the Ad.

If it starts with "PORTAL" "User CP" etc and ends with "LOG OUT"; it is the right one.

Thrid from end is "SEARCH" Use this search box and use only one or at most two words.

NOTE: The green BOX search feature that has "radio buttons" for FRF and Google does not work as well for me.

I am with herk7769, the search at the top of the page has helped me find all kinds of information here. To answer your question, I run with my propane on also.

I travel with it on. for the fridge.

Once while travelling in cold weather, I stopped at least two hours before I was done driving for the day, kicked on the furnace, and when I got to my destination (which had no power hookups), rig was toasty and warm inside.
