Not to be rude but unless you have sails! If something catches on fire that usually means you had a problem anyway and probably would have had the fire even when camped. DW uses the microwave while rolling. But, if you really feel safer having everything turned off then after all, it is your coach. Nothing wrong with feeling safe.

we use our genny to power the basement ac when the inside temp is above 85 degrees. we figure that the genny uses about the same amount of fuel as the dash air does and the basement ac does a much better job.
we run the fridge on ac when the genny is running. otherwise we run the fridge on propane.
we use our propane furnace when it is below 70 degrees inside and the dash heat will not keep up. our defective ''coach heater'' system has been inoperative for 5 years.
remember to turn propane users and the genny off before refueling.

According to Cummings reps running the generator when you're going down the road is cheaper on fuel than running the in dash AC. We have a hydronic heater and if the bus is getting cold going down the road we just turn up the thermostat turn on the fans and turn off the heater and use the heat of the engine to heat the bus. This also works as a great way to cool down the engine if you're running too hot pulling a long hill on a hot day.
