Chuck,

Try this guy if you want -

Stern's RV Service - (mobile). Bob Sternberg, 720-505-7300, Denver CO. Says he is certified RV refrig specialist. Even does Warranty.

I don't know anything about him other than chatted with him at the RV show a year or so ago when he had a booth there.

Dave,

When on AC all is well, when I switch to LP [or if on AU and disconnect electric] I can hear it ignite and can see blue flame on the rear of the fridge but the black tube & canister don't get hot and the refer loses coolness, the temp will rise ~10 over 5-6 hours.

From what I can tell the fridge is the only thing that is not operating properly on propane, when I use LP for heating water all seems well and I can turn all three burners on simultaneously on the stove and don't see any change in flame.

I'm stumped???

I would think it has something to do with the quality and intensity of the LP flame.....it's not very big but the orifice is very small, perhaps there's an obstruction in there. I had a similar issue on our last TT and removed and cleaned the gas line orifice. I used a gentle puff of compressed air.

It's probably just in need of an adjustment. If you've gone from sea level to high altitude you could encounter some problems if things weren't adjusted properly. I bet a good fridge guy could figure it out unless than 1 hour, just a guess.

Millers in the venturi? Don't know about you folks, but miller moths invaded us this year, and usually love to hide out in LP appliances.

As you mentioned, they were bad when we were in Denver earlier this summer. But haven't been too bad anywhere else we've been. Apparently your the lucky ones right now!
