I posted a poll on this very subject back in March. It can be found at Gas or Not?.
You will find that this is a very heated subject at some "other" forums. It appears that the important thing is to remember to turn the refridgerator off before pulling up to the fuel pumps, so there is no open flame.
Hi guys, part of the reason I posted this was so everyone can reach thier own conclusions and maybe get some questioned answered. If you go to the RVMOBILE.COM link and then to COOLING UNITS- HOW IT WORK and then scroll down to OUT OF LEVEL, this section has a lot of good info and explains why it is important level the refrigerator, also it talks about driving with the system on. Also pretty cool if you go to GASREFRIGERATION.NET and go on left hand side to where it says HOW A REFRIGERATOR WORKS this is a animated display of what happenes inside the unit. Kirk
I was reading this topic when I went outside to check my TT. All I had to do to keep the light from coming on is turn the fridge off using the on/off switch located at the top of the fridge right next to the auto switch. The light stayed off regardless wether I was on shore power or not.
Since I store my Outback at the storage lot, I remove the propane tanks and battery after parking it. No available power shuts off the fridge light automatically! I also keep the propane cover in my basement to keep it looking nice.
