I followed the links to the posted references and could only find this from the Canadian Propane Assocation under the RVs and Campers section (http://www.propane.ca/en/about-propane/safety): In most provinces, it's law that all appliances and pilot lights must be turned off and cylinder valves closed while travelling.

But, again, there was no reference for that comment that I could find.

That's another case of somebody doing their research on the web and then repeating misinformation.

That was my point exactly...no one is citing any government legalese that specifically addresses this issue--even the Canadian Propane Association who should know better...

Edited: ...but is maybe doing a CYA thing.

OK. I apologise for first not doing the exhaustive research prior to posting and second, not checking for previous threads on the subject. But I was PISSED after losing all that food. I've calmed down now Thanks to all who posted, particularly those who had the right answer.

Time to get under way WITH THE FRIDGE ON !!

On the bright side Doug, you just got smarter. That is always a good thing.

Not that it really matters but, what kind of food was wasted. In my small 17' fridge $200.00 worth of food may not fit.

It's important to have a sympathetic audience to vent one's frustrations. Thank goodness for this forum...
