Turn off fridge when refuel TV ?

I always turn off my fridge when it's on propane before I pull into pumps to fill up TV. Just wondering how many of you do the same ? Do I need to ?

Very controversial subject, but in 40+ yrs I never did and I know many others who don't.

As Grumpy mentioned, if you search this forum you'll find several threads on this one (at least), and my summary of all that reading is that the consensus is No, people generally don't shut off their propane.

I don't either.

I don't either but have a vague memory that it may be required in a few states. I think going thru tunnels is the same situation.

I do not. On multiple occasions I sat within yards of a refueling point while Blackhawk helicopters were being refueled WHILE they were running....I think I'm ok fueling up my truck with the fridge on.
