Is it ok to run down the highway with the Frig and hot water heater on in the propane run mode? Thanks. Mike.

Mike:

Some do, it's widely suggested that you don't!

====

Don't know why the hot water tank would need to be on? The fridge is usually the question.

====

With the motorhome, I used to run with the fridge on propane. But I don't trust the plumbing in a trailer, more bouncing.

These little fridges seem to get by OK on DC, or pack em cold and leave em off while travelling (for a few hours).

====

If you choose to run with the propane on, I think most would agree to turn it off when refuelling ('before' you turn into the gas area, or as you turn off the interstate).

The fridge on gas would need to be turned off at a gas station for safety reasons. Gee when its real windy the hot water heater pilots sometimes shuts off. Some one added a baffle to the outside to solve that prob. But the hot water heater doesnt take very long, so just light it during setup at camping site
