In our TrailManor we had a 3 way frige, but the new Eagle has gas/120vac. We are not fans of traveling using the gas mode so I wired the inverter so that we have 120vac in the trailer while traveling. I plug the shore power plug into a 30amp outlet that I connected to the inverter that is powered off of the trucks 12vdc supply. Batteries get 13.2vdc and the fridge is happy. No issues so far..

It is not really necessary. A modern RV fridge will hold the cold for up to 6 hours.. as long as you dont open the door... I travel with mine off but every time I stop I turn on the propane (unless refueling the truck)

Can you travel with the refrigerator in gas mode? Will the burner stay lit?

I use propane whenever traveling. I have never had a problem. However, with a DSI and electronic controls it will re-light itself if needed. Most 2-way refrigerator operate this way.

This thread was intended to cover 3-way units only. 2-way units are a different ball game.
