Any info is helpful. Thanks
If possible, I try to pre-cool the fridge before leaving on a trip. I'll plug the RV into shore power a couple days before, then load the fridge with cold food and leave. If you're unable to pre-cool the fridge for a day or so, then start it as soon as you can using propane (it cools faster) and hopefully by the time you pack everything else, you can pack the fridge food last before you leave.
If putting drink in the fridge, I always have them cold before putting them in. If you put a bunch of room temperature water bottles, sodas, adult beverages in with cheese, meat and milk, the temperature of the fridge will raise before it cools the drinks down possibly spoiling some items.
