I always have mine on going down the road.... I don't think I have ever had the pilot blow out or the fridge be tripped from trying to relight when I got to the campground

Run mine year around on 120v to keep adult beverages cool. Run it on propane on the road. My Norcold will not run on 12v

I am sure that most states have the same rule/law regarding "Open
Flames" in fuel refueling stations. In Michigan (per their website) here is what they have to say about
it: See # 5



As for what is the definition of an "Open Flame", that may depend on what each state's definition is, the federal definition or the NFPA's (National Fire Protection Association) definition. Since the flame is on the outside of the RV, it is exposed to the outside elements (fumes).... your call. I run on electric.


[h=3]Self Service Stations[/h]Contact: Storage Tank Unit 517-335-7211
Agency: Environmental Quality

Self-service stations for dispensing of gasoline and diesel are regulated under the Michigan Underground Storage Tank Rules (MUSTR), 1999 AACS R 29.2101, et seq. adopting by reference, the Storage and Handling of Flammable and Combustible Liquids (FL/CL) Rules, 2000 AACS R 29.5101 et seq. Chapter 9 of Part 3 of the FL/CL Rules includes the following restrictions and requirements to assure that self-service station fueling operations minimize the risk of fire and explosion:

1) At least one attendant must be on duty while the station is open for business. The attendant's primary function shall be to supervise, observe, and control the dispensing of the liquids.

2) Operating instructions shall be conspicuously posted in the dispensing area.

3) One or more fire extinguishers with a 4-B:C rating must be located within 100 feet of each dispenser or storage tank fill opening.

4) Warning signs must be posted in the dispensing areas that provide the following information:
a) Warning - it is unlawful and dangerous to dispense gasoline into unapproved containers.
b) No smoking.
c) The person dispensing shall remain in attendance "outside" the vehicle and within view of the hose nozzle valve during the dispensing operation.
d) Stop motor.
5) No smoking or open flames are allowed within 25 feet of fueling area.

Mine won't run without 12v when using gas.

Turn the fridge on the night before traveling while plugged to 120. Load the unit with pre frozen items in the freezer and pre cooled stuff in the fridge part. Don't load with warm drinks. Always have ran with unit on gas mode. Modern rv fridges have electronic ignition so no pilots. Arrive at camp site and as soon as you connect to power, check to make sure the fridge switches over to electric.

Never had anyone question when fueling other than with a motorhome when we were filling onboard propane tanks.

I have a 3 way fridge in my unit. While on 120V shore power the fridge ran fine on electricity. I hooked up my truck 7-pin and unplugged the shore power and heard the gas starting to light for propane use. Isn't it supposed to switch over to 12V automatically? Am I doing something incorrectly?

Re: Traveling with fridge running....

Probably depend on the fridge model. Have you tried turning off the gas to see if it will switch 12v?
