Raptor Refridge question

Just a quick question. obviously I know that the refridge will run off of propane or electric. My question is, if I am running the fridge off of propane and the battery goes dead, will the fridge stop running and not cool?

My concern is that we will be dry camping and I'll be away from the RV for a day, I'm afraid the battery is going to die and the fridge will stop cooling. Thanks

Yes the fridge will quit operating if the battery goes dead. Depending on brand/model, some will continue to operate down to about 8.5 volts. As long as your battery is in good shape and you don't leave lights on it should last through the day.

I have started refers on propane with a charged battery and left them for a couple of days.

If the fridge door stays closed all day, even if the battery does die (which it shouldn't in one day), everything in the fridge is still going to stay nice and cold for at least another 12 hours.
