Refrigerator on while traveling?
 
When we picked up our Crusader 295rst te the dealer told us we could leave the propane on to keep the refrigerator cold. How does everyone feel about this? I've heard so many horror stories about this.

I've done 10+ hours in upper 80-90 degree with the fridge off. As long as you don't stop a lot and open it up it will stay cold.

I keep the camper plugged in and the fridge on when it's parked at home from the time I open it in the spring until i close it up for the winter. The last thing we do before we leave home is turn the fridge off and unplug it from the house. All the food we take is put in the day before we leave. So it's nice and cold when we leave.

I run with the fridge on.

Always on for us...either from electrical power at home or propane on the road.
Start the fridge in mid may and turn it off mid October before winterizing.
Never had a problem...been 5 years now !

This question comes up quite often. Here's a link to a poll about travel with the fridge on.

And here's a link to a more recent discussion.
