LP Gas

Having worked around LP Gas and have seen training videos I have a very healthy respect for how dangerous LP gas can be. My question, is do you run the refer on LP gas while driving down the road?

Most people do although it is dangerous. Just REMEMBER to shut off the propane before you fill up.. would not want the flame from the fridge to come on while filling up..

I think most folks around here do. It is technically allowable per the manual - it is generally a question of local ordinance or code. There are some jurisdictions where it is not allowed, and generally not allowed in tunnels and the like.

There are some that are concerned if they get in an accident, and rightfully so. In the end, it is a personal decision on what you are comfortable with within the law.

LP safety

Just a note on running the refer while heading down the road, have the LP system check by a tech each year. A older the RV has great the chance of a problem. Utube has a lots examples of a what a fire looks like and most are older Rvs but not all, some a new! Be safe not sorry!
