Fridge

If I'm going away on Saturday morning & arriving at site in the afternoon when should i turn the Fridge on to keep food & drink cool for when we get there :?: Trailer would be picked up from storage on Friday morning.

Also, is there a lightwieght Aluinum Ramp available for entrance as my Pooch ( Jade ) is having trouble with climbing stairs.

Re: Fridge

My fridge is ON 24/7, but when I didn't have power to where it was stored, I would set the fridge to LP and let it cool overnight. Next day, I'd load it with items needed for the trip.
Before leaving, I'd set the fridge to LP. This way the fridge is cooling while it's being towed.

NOTE: You'll find lots of controversy on the subject of "towing with fridge on."

I, and many others, have done it for years with no problem.

Oh, almost forgot help for Jade.



Check out PetStep or All dog ramps.

I Googled "dog ramps" and found many different sites that have them. 1-800-Petmeds.com offers free shipping on purchases over $39.
