Propane is extremely safe. It will only burn with an air mixture of 3% to 9%, more or less than that and it will not ignite. We have always traveled with the propane on and never had an issue over the last 40 years. Most folks I know, also leave their propane on.

Another "won't" over here.


The sloshing of refrigerant is as good as keeping the thing level according to Norcold.


I just can get past having a semi-open flame running while hauling a pressurized propane system.

Do you travel with the frig on poll and discussion will no doubt be enlightening:

I run the refer, water heater and even the furnace if needed. Have been for 15 years including 8 years of fulltime. No problems so far.
