I also run with the propane on BUT you should remember to shut off the fridge BEFORE you pull into a gas station.... although a remote chance you dont want the pilot light or burner to ignite gas fumes in the air...

My decision is to not run with the propane on. Instead, I have started freezing ice packs nightly when the refrigerator is working on electricity or propane, and place them in refrigerator during the day while travelling.

We have never had any food spoil and the meals and liquids consumed at lunch and supper have always being cold.

We cool down the fridge for the week before a trip. We use our awesome little Camco ice trays to make ice all week. When we unplug from the house, we run the fridge on propane until we're plugged back in at camp. It's worked well for us this way.
