Should you put refrigerator on D.C. When on the road. I had just been turning it off. I know not to use propane when moving. Comments.

I had a 3-way refrigerator in my last trailer. I always used the 12 volt when traveling, but I'll be honest, it barely slowed the warming process.

We use 12v when the engine is running, although before we had the option we used propane when traveling. I'm not sure why you say you "know not to use propane when moving". Seems like an odd statement unless you plan to forget to turn it off when fueling.

FYI: Those of us with 2 way units routinely run on propane while underway.

just put it on pp and all most forget it. TURN OFF when fueling, before you get to the pumps. the refrig uses very little pp.12v will not do the job.

That has been my limited experience.

designed to use propane when moving. Do it. Turn it off at fuel pumps. Don't smoke at fuel pumps. If you see someone smoking at fuel pumps, get away as far and fast as you can.

We used all the time but never felt really good about a open flame. Picked up a wireless thermometer and turns out our fefrig keeps temps except most hottest days. Get gauge with most range... I think ours is 55 feet. Works for us.
