Quick question about pre-cooling fridge

Howdy!

I am leaving in a few hours (about 10 hrs, at 4am) and have my TV and HTT all hooked up and plugged into the TV receiver. I have opened the LP valve and turned the fridge "ON" to cool via LP/battery.
I am *assuming* having the fridge "ON" will not adversely affect or drain my TV battery while sitting there parked for about 10 hrs, engine off. And, will the fridge begin to cool down?

Quick answers appreciated and thanks!!

You will be fine. I always just leave mine hooked up to shore power overnight. The next morning while warming up the truck i just unhook the shore power and load up the wife and kids and head out. Good luck and have fun.

As long as you are using propane, you will be fine, the 12volt draw is very low. Don't use the 12volt option if you have a 3-way fridge as this will drain your battery and possibly the TV in a few hours.
