We have a 29.3 (2016) Ace and have not had any problems with leaks with the slide out. Maybe have your dealer check it out before it become a real problem.

I do the pre cool sometimes, and use ice pacs as several have mentioned. My fridge is on gas while I drive, no issue at all. It does not use much gas. I am out west, no tunnels to worry about, but 115 degree weather makes the fridge work hard...but it does work..

We pre cool on shore power. Travel with the gas shut off; seen to many RV fires along I-75 in FL. Refrig is good for 3 to 4 hours which gives us time to get to the CG. Run on propane mostly at the CG.

I have never had any problem going over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge with my MH. The Bay Bridge/Tunnel in Virginia will stop you and check the propane, as explained a couple of posts above. Also, DO NOT go through either of the Baltimore tunnels, very hefty fine if you try to. I always go around the Beltway, rather than take the Francis Scott Key bridge.

Been through the Monitor-Merrimac & Hampton Roads Tunnels in Norfolk VA. You stop and they inspect the bottle to be sure it is off. Same thing for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel going to the Eastern Shore. No problem with The Bay Bridge at Annapolis either. I've used them all several times with the Vegas.

Just be careful on the Bay Bridge or the Bay Bridge Tunnel if the winds are high. That can be a white knuckle adventure.
