I don't know what you drive but in our smaller C (24') opening the roof vent in the washroom and running the dash a/c or heat will keep the entire m/h at a good temp. in all but the coldest / hottest temps. The fridge will run for weeks on propane without putting much more than a dent in the fuel levels.

All in all, we find the hour or two it takes to get the m/h, water and fridge to the desired temp once we get plugged in at a c/g or otherwise parked is no big deal.

YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).

One of the nicest features of our coach is the Auto-Start Generator function. While going down the road, we leave the generator in auto and let it start when the Air Conditioner needs it to run. The system works exceptionally well.

The refer runs in auto as well and gets AC power when the generator is on and switches to LP when necessary.

Note: I installed a switch at the generator panel to override the Onan safety function. Without the switch, the generator would shut down every time the ignition switch was cycled on or off. Worse, it would revert to the manual mode of operation which required a trip to the generator panel to return it to auto mode. Overriding the feature is simple but you must do it with a switch as the Onan system requires a ignition on-off cycle every 30 days to enable auto operation. All the switch does is cut out the ignition switch ground. Works like a champ!
