do you travel with butane on? Jayfeather x19h

I'm off to Alaska! With stops in the Yukon and maybe up the Dempster Hwy in Northwest territories, at least a little way.

Long stretches of driving might melt the gel packs I have used to keep the fridge cool during travel on shorter trips last fall and this spring. (Fridge is Norcold N61X, runs on butane or ac electricity, not 12-volt, in 2014 Jayfeather).

Last night over the margeritas, two different families, who tow a different brand of trailer, said they routinely drive with the butane turned on. They turn it off before they pull into a gas station because there is the exposed flame. Apparently lots of folks travel with the butane on, and maybe I've been silly.

Do other people travel with the butane on?
