Not only that, it takes hours for an absorption refrigerator to become cold enough to use when first started. Unless you have some other means of keeping your food cold until the refrigerator's ready, spoilage could occur and any frozen items would be partially, if not fully, defrosted.
I always carry a cooler in the truck when camping, even if just to hold the cold/frozen food while driving back to the campsite from the store.
