We always travel with the fridge on, but several years ago after having the cooling unit fail twice in a six month period, I installed an ARP device to protect the cooling unit from overheating if the rig is too far out of level while traveling or stopped for a meal. The fridge has worked well ever since, making the ARP device well worth the small investment. It is also meant to help prevent fridge fires due to overheating, so it's a valuable safety device also.

The fridge manufacturers say you should turn the fridge on 24 hours before you put stuff in it. If you can do this great. However, our experience is that it cools faster than that. We try to give it 8 hours of operation, before we load it.

Ours was stored outside in the Texas heat, if it's 110 outside it's probably that or more inside the RV so it took at least 24 hours to cool enough to keep food chilled.
They don't use much LP or electricity so turn it on however early you'll think is necessary.

Like the vast majority I run mine while on the road.

I use a AcuRite 00986 Refrigerator Thermometer, less than $30. It tells me the temp in the fridge and the freezer without opening the door. I also like the fact that it will let me know if something went wrong while away with a min/max temp. memory.

Yes and they do random checks while ferries are enroute. Had ours checked to see if the tanks were closed and tagged.
