Actually if you have it turned on to "auto" when traveling and the green light is lit, the frig is indeed working on gas if your Norcold is like mine.

There are some rigs that are equipped with a 3 way frig, gas, 110 electric and 12 volt.

Turn the reef and gas on. Gas works faster than elect.

Our manual says its a 2-way fridge, so I guess it's not working while we travel since we haven't turned the gas on. We plug the trailer in a couple days before leaving and turn the fridge on then so it's good and cold before I stock it a few hours before we leave. Since we only travel two or three hours before setting up camp the fridge is still very cold when we arrive at the campground. If we traveled for longer, which we plan to do in the future, how long is too long to not have the fridge running? Of course, I'm sure that depends in part on how hot it is where we're traveling.

There is no reason not to leave It on while traveling. It will use hardly any gas on a short trip. Makes sure your food don't get to hot.

it would take many hours before it would lose any coolness as long as it was never opened..leave the gas off if you prefer

Is anyone aware of a problem involving the fridge being on and gas being pumped? I may be missing something, (it's happened in the past) but the concealed flame is gong to be closest to the pump on the passenger side island and there would be several feet of air between the two, with a vehicle in between if gas is being pumped. If at a diesel only pumping area, no problem. I suppose there is a statistical chance of trouble in a long tunnel, but, again, there must be thousands of incidents of collisions causing problems at fueling stations, tunnels, etc., for every propane problem. But we all should act and live at our own comfort level.

Yes, I travel with it on, always shut it off before I enter a gas station, tunnels and ferries. I always have the propane systems checked every year for safety by the dealer.

Okay so an update on the igniter blowing out. It was in fact my human error that was causing it. Being new to TT's I wasn't standing there long enough to make sure that it was working on gas. It took three times of cycling through on/off and finally the third time I bled the line with the stove. I was standing there, what I considered a minute to see if the light was going to start blinking or not. My minute, being excited to get going with the fam and new TT, was no true minute. Thanks for all the advice from everyone on this subject!!
