Newbie question about fridge

How does the fridge work while traveling down the road? Is it on propane?

Harmopa, just make sure the propane tank is turned on and the refrigerator is set on auto and it will run on propane. When you plug it into shore power it will switch to electric. It is OK to let it run while traveling, just remember to shut it off when at the gas station. You don't want the frige to light up if there are gas fumes around.

Unless you have a 3-way fridge - which is found on many smaller TT and Pop-ups. 3-ways run on propane, 12VDC, or 110VAC.

Running off 12VDC, a 3-way the fridge will automatically draw from your converter supplied voltage (when hooked to shore power), Travel Vehicle (while connected for towing) or TT battery (no external connections). For long trips, 12VDC will save on propane, but keep in mind it will continue to draw power from both the TT and TV batteries when the TV engine is shut off.....
