What does BDS mean when referring to propane, also what does DSI mean when referring to refrigerators.

Don't know what BDS is, but DSI is direct spark ignition. It means you don't have to light a pilot light. The flame of the furnace, stove, water heater or refrigerator will be automatically lit with a piezoelectric igniter.

Thank you for the info, another poster referred to BDS regarding propane tanks being turned off during vehicle refueling.

only thing I know of BDS (blower direct service) is a type injection service used in hot rods and race cars. don't know what that would have to do with an RV
