Well - letting food go warm in the refrigerator can cause food poisoning especially with meat, mayo, etc. However a propane leak when you're refueling? Mucho-Bado! Propane is heavier than air, so if you get a leak inside your unit, then park and open the door with a lighted cigarette you're going to lose more than an eyebrow or two. I will tow with my refrigerator running on propane, but when I stop for fuel I turn it off - and I'm putting diesel in the TV which is much less flammable than gasoline. If I need to travel major arteries such as I-95 or I-64 I do so during the lowest traffic if possible and I'll also go with the propane off. On country roads at lower speeds I'm more comfortable running with it on.
Be careful, but realize that any OTHER driver might be just bleepin' nuts! It's pretty easy to keep your refrigerator cool, even without A/C if you put a bag of ice in the refrigerator part, keep the curtains drawn and the door closed.
Be careful but have furn!
