To Fuse or Not To Fuse

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site and I have a simple question. I usually store my TT with the battery disconnected by pulling the fuse. I'm planning a trip soon and was trying to find out what others do when they start their refrig. My DW wants to start it the night before we take off, to get it cold. One of us are stating that the fuse needs to be in for the refrig to get cold prior to our hooking up, while the other is saying that the fuse will not be needed. HELP! The refrig will be placed on (gas) only. What are the thoughts on this issue.

I like at least 24+ hours before I leave.

Yes, the battery needs to be connected, unless your TT is hooked up to shore power. And you need to open up the propane valve on the tank. Good idea about starting it up a day in advance. It takes a while for them to get down to temperature.
