Guess I'll be the exception. I turned mine "off" while traveling. I found that the freezer stayed frozen (even the ice) and the cooler cold until the next stop. If we stopped for a long time I fired up the genset and turned on the refrig with electrical power. When we arrived at the next stop-over the first thing I did was plug in and set the refrig on electrical power. This seemed to work well.
Driving with the LP turned on just makes me a little nervious.

This is good to know. I have been traveling with my refrig on AUTO which means it is on propane while driving. All of my trips so far are local (2-5 hrs). I have talked to some folks that say you cannot drive the MH through tunnels due to the propane like in Washington/Baltimore. Or is it you cannot with the propane on and running the frig?

Are there other places you cannot drive MH with propane on? How would you know?

I can't imagine having a motorhome and *not* running the fridge going down the road. They are designed to do so. The alternative is to put no food of any kind in the fridge until you get to your destination, then remove (or consume it all) until you get to your next destination. Not practical at all. You could, of course, run the geny going down the road but seriously, kind of overkill.

Count me along with Mr. Copeland because I shut mine off when traveling as well. As long as you keep the frig doors shut, everything seems to be just fine.

If we are not going to be on the road too long, we shut it off. The frig will stay cold for several hours if the door is closed. Ours has actually stayed cold enough for a full day.

Glad it is unlikely I'll ever travel with my trailer to New Jersey or Canada. According to the above posted site - those, and tunnels, are the only places where it is not allowed...
