Mark, you might need to turn off the propane on ferries, in tunnels, etc. Generally speaking you can leave it on.

We always clear the counter top before travel. Things in cabinets seem to stay put. LP stays on 100 % of the time. They shut it off when filling.

When fueling your rig, any propane appliances should be off. Or propane off at propane tank. And when filling with propane, attendant will turn off propane at tank.

When putting gasoline in your rig, no open flames should be present. Meaning either your propane should be off at the propane tank, or any propane appliance (like refrigerator, furnace, water heater) should be off. And when filling your propane tank, the attendant will turn off the propane at the tank, for the same reason. No open flames. Hope this helps.

There aren't many gas pushers. I don't have one, but since your questions translate to other types of RVs as well, they should work for gas pushers.

This is something that is going to happen. You can do things to mitigate the problem, like drive slower, buy non breakable items for use in the RV, put in grippy shelf liners and various restraint solutions, but you will always have some things shift in transit. You learn to open compartments slowly after arrival to anticipate the inevitable avalanche.

I leave mine on unless I am going through an area that requires it to be off (tunnels, ferrys, etc)

I just turn mine on. Has kept everything cool so far.

There are not enough alpha-bits available on the internet to type EVERYTHING I do when I'm driving it, and posting SOME of those things would likely earn me another infraction.

You're very welcome!

P.S. Punctuation and proper case makes it easier on everyone, leaving them out is only easier for you.

The grippy shelf liners really help with item movement in the cupboards!
