If I am more than 4-5 hours from my destination I run the LP on the fridge. Anything shorter, the fridge will stay cold with no power. Always off when I fuel, and some places require it be off. Like Washington State Ferries.

The food will not likely stay cold when it's 90-100 degrees outside, and you drive for many hours; also, you will likely want to open it to get cold drinks, have lunch, and so on. Concerned folks can turn off the refrigerator when they refuel.

We seldom if ever fill up on the road in tow. We start out with a full tank and stop before fuel is needed.

We always get gas when un hooked. So far we have not traveled far enough to need fuel while connected. I just leave the fridge on auto and don't lose any sleep over it.

I fire mine up before we leave the house, and shut it off when we get back home. Never give it a second thought.

I never run it at all while driving The propane tank is always shut off. No chance of fire that way while underway. Refer stays cool for 8 hours, put a gallon frozen water jug in the refer to help.
