Great news Reace. I always wondered about the accuracy of the wireless thermometers, but haven't put in the time for proper testing. Thanks for keeping us updated. Can't beat side-by-side real world testing ---keep those updates coming!!

Not sure why the flame keeps blowing out. It cools well on propane so I don't want to mess with the regulator. Dennis has been running his fridge on propane the whole time with no problem, but his is a 21'. Last year we had the old 6.7 in a 5.0 and flame kept blowing out. The good thing is 12v is definitely working well enough on long hot drives. I packed ice packs for the drive just in case...its a good thing cuz they in Dennis fridge while we drive n the beer is in mine!

Cheers
Doug

Good to hear there's a 21 along for the Reace/Bluebonnet fridge experiment. Sounds like I may need to plan a trip home for Felicity to get a new cooler sometime this year............

I had my 5.0 TA with the new style 6.7 fridge on the road most of Feb and it ran on propane only while driving with no problems. I had it on 4 bars for cooling. Daytime outside temps ware 80's to 90's and fridge was averaging 36 degrees. In the freezer, everything was frozen solid.

I'm a happy camper

iPads spell checking strikes again -- of course I meant to say 'Reace, thanks so much for this good news'. But in this case I feel like a new fridge will rescue me from cooling issues so maybe it is appropriate
