I do not run with the propane on, I have a large enough cooler that it keeps very thing nice and frozen and the milk cold.
Yes I am one of those people who ensure everything is off,

But you TV provides 12v DC...your fridge probably needs 120v AC.

Even if you added an inverter to provide 120v from the batteries. Your TV is only designed to keep the TT battery charged when traveling with just the "parasitic" drains (clock, CO2 detector, ect)

My tow vehicle provides 14.4V and will charge the batteries on the trailer quite well, my fridge is AC/DC and only pulls 4.5amps off a 12V circuit (Edgestar- LOVE that fridge).
My TV is not "designed" to only top off a battery- it's "designed" to generate as much electricity as needed up to 150 amps while driving. The trailer batteries will take as much as they can to charge up, so run some relatively decent gauge wiring and let those babies charge.
