I use the heater, gas or electric, as needed. I run the generator as needed. The Fridge is always on on propane when traveling. I figure if they didn't want them used while traveling they would disable them like the front TV's.

Well, most anything save for a front mounted Television. Though... Water heater (Gas or electric if you run the genny) A/C, heat furnace, fridge.

Insurance companies say to turn off the propane at the tank, but frankly the danger is small if you do not, and I'd rather, if a fridge, for example, were to catch fire, it happen on the freeway than say an FMCA rally where we are packed in so close we can't even open an awning.

Oh, I do not think I'd care to operate a hand mixer making a cake either.. but then I don't do cakes, I'm a 3.14 man. (There is a pun there if you can figure it out).
What flavor pie?

My always cold Norcold automatically selects the source (LP or 120VAC) for power based on availability. So, when there is no inverter, no shore power, the Norcold selects LP regardless of whether I'm moving or parked.

I actually like the fridge on LP because it cools a bit faster and make ice a bit quicker.

I run everything going down the road. Never shut the propane off unless refilling the propane. I have fueled up with the jeny running, the V10 running, the fridge and water heater on propane, running. If its cold or hot out, I fill my pickups or cars up with the engine running. Never had a problem in about fifty years of driving. Just don't drive off with the nozzle in you fuel tank. Seen a car burn up once because of that.
