mikew968, don't need to worry about amp draw when driving as the house batteries are being charged by the engine's alternator. Was never a problem on my Tiffin and we ran the way all the time.

We run the fridge on propane while driving. Had the fridge shut down a couple of times and start beeping. Removed the outside panel and there is a small container for the frost free moisture, it was full and water was sloshing around putting the flame out.Now I always make sure it's empty before driving and have not had a problem since.

I travel with my fridge on propane. Try to remember to turn it off when refueling.

If your inverter is capable of keeping the frig running, why not use this rather than depleting your propane while traveling? The chassis alternator will recharge the house batteries going down the road.

The fridge will only run on Gen, shore power ac, or propane. My question is why didn't Jayco allow the fridge to run off the inverter?

Nothing is really stated in the new owners manual but I am thinking the 1000w inverter could handle the load but Jayco only wired it for Gen., shore power or propane. It would be a nice option to use the inverter while on the road in order to save propane.
I may send a e-mail to customer service and have some input from one of their electrical engineers.
Maybe an easy wiring change to the inverter.

The fridge really doesn't use much propane, for the few hours on the road you will hardly make a dent in your supply. It's kinda of like turning off your car's air conditioner because it uses too much gas...
