Solaire refrigerator run on 12v?

I have a 2014 Solaire 292qbsk and I am trying to figure out if the fridge runs off the tow vehicle when attached. Anyone know the answer to this?

NO, it's a 2-way fridge, not a 3-way fridge.
too big to cool from your tow vehicle 12v supply.

Some have propane to run on while towing. Some close the propane valves at the tanks while towing. If your towing for 6-10 hours the contents if already chilled/frozen will keep, providing you don't open and close the fridge.

Yes, but you can use the 12 volts from the tv and the battery to power the controls and let the fridge run on propane while traveling.

Okay, thanks for the replies. I had been doing it on gas, and hadn't really thought about it until someone mentioned it at the last campground.
