I believe Iíll look into an inverter for just that purpose. Do you have one to recommend? Thanks for a good idea.

Remember what you do at the campfire to get the fire started?...blow on it...that's the same effect the wind at 70MPH has on the vents behind the fridge. There are many models available but a 1000W would be more than enough and it would give you another power source at boondock...an you'll save propane!!

Iíll look into it. Likely cheap enough on eBay. Do inverters require a switch to isolate it from shore or generator power or can both be connected at the same time? Brand new idea for me.

Connect it directly to the output of your battery bank and it will work either way. Plug fridge directly into the inverter. The inverter itself has a separate on/off switch so you can isolate it yourself when dry storing coach. You can also just move fridge plug back over to original outlet when extend stays on shore power. A little bit of work but a great option instead of propane all the time.

LP-GAS RESTRICTIONS:
Virginia/Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel: RVs equipped with ICC-approved compressed cooking tanks not exceeding two 45-pound capacity tanks (or two permanently mounted containers with maximum total capacity of 200 pounds) may cross the facility provided that, in the opinion of the toll collector or police sergeant after inspection, the tanks are completely shut off and securely attached.

We use the CBBT a few times a year. They'll ask you at the toll booth if the propane is off.
