some states have the law that the propane must be off while traveling.. and common sense says to turn it off at the filling station..

barrelslime:::: please DON'T fill up near me!

Hello

we have had a couple tent trailers with the 3 way fridge , truck camper had 12 volt or lp only - different

having a 3 way fridge is great

We have run the fridge on both LP and 12 volt while traveling with no issues

the safest way is to run the fridge on 12 volt battery power while traveling , the 12 volt will not work as well as on LP(while camping), since your not in and out of the fridge while towing it will be fine to keep everything nice and cool.

We had our Jayco 8U tent trailer for 4 years and ran it on LP almost all the time with no issues , just be carefull at the fuel pumps.

The 12 volt option works just as well to keep the fridge cool going down the road.

the lp option will cool the fridge faster when you first turn the fridge on or if you go in and out of the fridge often.

I almost forgot to say the 12 volt on the fridge does take a far amount (2-3 amps )of power so if you happen to be parked for more than 2-3 hrs(depending on your batteries ) some where with out the vehicle running charging the battery switch to propane if you can

the fridge can kill a battery overnight , so be carefull

12 volt is safer , but many people have used LP and left it turned on with no issues

It is up to you and how comfortable you feel

Happy Camping

How long does a 5 gallon propane tank last running the fridge?

With just the fridge on it will last over a month probably 2 or 3.. it really uses very little...
