I had that problem and cleaning the circuit board terminal connections and adding dielectric grease solved the problem forever. The circuit board contact are not gold and therefor corrode easily. Hope this helps. Mine will stand 80MPH and semis passing.

I recently had the exact same problem. I solved it by fitting a furnace filter (10 x 20 x01) in the opening behind the louvre door of the exterior fridge access. This prevents the flame from being blown out while travelling.

Problem solved, for me anyway.

LP on is dangerous - If you don't open the door for 8 hours on an 80 degree day the temp will go up 2 degrees.
Use wireless thermometer to tell temp - if you must run refer, get an inverter.

Pointless to have a refer that you can't have access to make lunch or get a cold drink while on the road. You will lose temp if the door is opened numerous times during the day.
We travel with the refer operating. And will continue to do so.

have not noticed a flame out issue on a 2005 classic with trip from florida to nc and raleigh to boone and back.

not sure what tires you are running but 70 is like WAY to fast for most of the ST tire i have heard.. the only time i see 70 is going down hill seeing another hill ahead and wanting to gather some steam to help pull up the incline..

sorta like when i used to drive a tractor trailer for Thurston Motor lines.. We had what everyone called "dragon fly" trucks. we would drag up the hill and fly down the other side.. seems the trucks were governed to 1800 RPM which limited speed to 62 MPH. We ran detroit 8v71 motors that like to run 2000 rpm to get in the power range so being limited to 1800 was an anchor.

This is why I will NOT drive with my refrigerator running when we travel: Dangerous to run RV fridge on propane on the road?

"Mac the Fire Guy" (in the video) ...BEGINS his presentation with an invalid statement. "if you're in a wreck and rupture your black line ..." he says in words to the effect, that you have 5 lines feeding various items all of which now pose a fire hazard due to a huge propane leak.

It's a minor point, but Airstreams don't have black iron pipe lines carrying propane, but mostly what's incorrect in modern systems is that an open line will cause the excess-flow-limiter to shut the propane completely off.

Also, contrary to his statements, Dometic, in their owner's manuals, actually approves travelling with the propane feature operational on their reefers,...their only admonition is to be carefull when refueling because of the hazard of gasoline fumes near an open flame.

I travel with my propane on. I do not park to refuel with my reefer anywhere near the gas pumps.
And when I crossed over to Port Aransas on the ferry, they couldn't have cared less whether my propane tanks were shut off or not. I asked. Their only concern was with propane delivery trucks.

But he does say its your RV you can do what you want.. I agree not many RV's, if any, use a black iron or schedule 80 pipe.. most use copper which will crush mostly before it will break and in the rare event the flow limiter will shut off the flow of gas..

I checked it, loss of flow, on my RV unit so i know that is true. a small leak will allow gas to flow but any thing large enough to cause a problem is mostly eliminated.
