Good point about the TT.
Let me rephrase. Again, this is from the Norcold 3ways I dealt with.
With them, the 12V heater was not designed to cool the refr down from warm temps, but to keep it cool once 120V/LP got it there.

We run our fridge on propane from the time we leave home until the time we return (to include while in transit). Works great, and uses surprisingly little propane.

Our 17 year old Norcold has been run/used continuously, on LP, for as long as 3 months, and as short as 3 days, at a time every year for 12 years.

Do you turn it off when you fuel up the motorhome?

Yes it is smart and a law to turn off the gas while fueling.
