Refrigerator pilot goes out. Jim 10-16-02  
The pilot light on ref. goes out while I'am driving down interstate. But when we are at a campground it will stay lite. we have a Class C Coachman 2001.

Had the same problem, even had the circuit board replaced (due to another problem) which some say is the cause of this type of malfunction. Finally replaced the LPG regulator at the tank which increased the pressure to correct the gas to air ratio. It doesn't go out when parked since there is no turbulence but the mixture has to be right when it is getting some air turbulence from the vented door. Get the gas pressure checked at an LPG dealer or RV repair shop. It should be at least 11 inches of water column.

You have a wind shield for the burner box that might need adjusting if it has rattled loose or someone left the "window" open. Most do not travel with propane on and if you do you'll need to turn these off to refuel. Your refrigerator once cold should travel all day without getting too warm. Good luck and be safe.

Listen to the Wizard! More and more states are making it illegal to transport with butane tank valves open, unless they are part of the vehicle's fuel system.Add to that the fact that insurnace companies tend to view a butane fueled fire, (as a result of the tank valves being opened), in the aftermath of a collision, as being a contributing factor caused by the "insured", and then reduce their loss compensation accordingly.

But if you have to run with your refrigerator on while traveling to keep your cold food from spoiling, you can take a fiberglass filter from the return of an A/C unit or hot air furnace, fold it in half and put it on the bottom behind the access door on the outside of your unit. It was nice when the trend was three way power refrigerators, but now it is either gas or 110 and the 12 volt is almost non existant.
