That must be a new feature as I don't think my Bounder had it. However I wouldn't have known as we always turned it off prior to pulling in a gas station. What happens when you're in the station longer than 15 minutes ?EEK

Only 15 minutes?
That, IMO, is an awfully dangerous "safety feature"!

I suppose she has to remember to shut OFF the fridge... and the LP WH and the LP furnace, (if/when she drives with them on)... before the 15 minute automatic safety feature "times out"... and turns her coach into a bomb!

Would that make her Bounder a Bomber?

Actually, it's a safety "feature" of the Dometic RM1350 refrigerator. It's called the "Temporary Gas Lockout" and it locks out LP gas for 15 minutes when the ignition is turned off. I suppose if fueling takes longer than that, the fridge should be shut off.

Thanks for your concern and I'm glad you found it amusing.

In all seriousness, I am amazed on the number of pro-leave it running camp....I just never considered it as an option. Learn something everyday!

I'll shut it down....just saying
