After some internet research I found many say it was dangerous to do this anyway, so this trip I ran it on DC. Well the battery only stays charged enough to run it for 5 or 6 hours. What's a guy do to?
When you are actually driving, the alternator should provide enough power to run the frig without killing the battery, if your isolator/separator is working correctly. You do have to remember to switch the frig back to propane when you stop for any length of time, though, as it will then kill the battery quickly.
