I have not yet "pre-cooled" the refrigerator before leaving on trips.I would like to turn on the frig the night before an upcoming trip. Is it better to run the frig on electric or propane? Does it matter? I will be able to plug the motorhome into an electric outlet if needed. Also, should the battery be turned on while the frig cools overnight?Thanks- Roni
Just me but I cool down on propane to make sure it works and the spiders haven't put webs in the gas burner mixing pipe. If they do it won't work, trust me, happened once each refer and hot water heater. Once cooled down I switch to elec at home til we leave. Those webs require an almost complete tear down to get them out, I have tried compressed air and vacuum and neither worked completely.
Bob is right about the need for 12v when on LPG. The spark to light the flame is from the 12v. When you plug in, the batteries automatically come one. Try turning them off at the switch by the door when plug in. You can't get the light to go out.
