    February 21, 2020We have an older camper van with a 3 way refrigerator. We have always run it off the battery or elec. never propane. I'm not even sure if there is something special we have to do to use the propane? Can anyone tell me how I can test it to make sure its safe?

      Cruising In Our Cabin February 22, 2020 Ours is a two way Elec or gas, it was ready to go, we just put it on auto and it chose gas when electric wasn’t available. It’s great, if the electric goes out, gas kicks in.

      Jim & Sharon Ham February 22, 2020 We have not seen a 3 way frig in years.  The 12 volt was a heavy drain, but worked well when the motorhome engine was running down the highway. Since it is old, a good cleaning of the gas burner area and metal exhaust stack in t...  more
