Question Transporting a propane refrigerator on its side

I'm picking up a used Norcold fridge for the Sovereign this week. Is it okay to transport it on its side, or does it need to remain upright?

On its side is fine. It's not like a compressor-type fridge with oil in the lines.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

On it's side is OK.

BUT, make sure it's in a vertical position for a day or two, before you fire it up, so that you don't accidentally create a "vapor lock."
