replacing a propane only fridge

Is there any experience out there with simply replacing a propane only fridge with a 12V/120V and propane fridge? My 17' is 10 years old, new to me, and i'm looking to get a multi-power fridge.

All of the Escape trailers come with either 3 way or 2 way refrigerators, 12v/120v/propane or 120v/propane.

Thanks! I was told by the seller that it was propane only, but it is not. I just went and checked everything and the unit I have is a 12/120/propane unit. The previous owner told me he only ever operated on propane!

Hi Don’t be too harsh on the seller, we got ready to sell our 19 and upon examination
figured out we had a two way hot water heater. I had never looked and only ever heated water with propane. I think after three seasons with the 21 I know what I have but I wouldn’t bet money on it. The other day I discovered a hidden door key Jack had put in a place I didn’t expect to see one. So you never know.

My opportunity to plug my binder with its plastic sleeves for all the appliance and trailer manuals. Makes for good reading on a rainy day.
I also have a log to note when maintenance was performed, and for comments on weather, campsites etc.


I'd get that fridge serviced too if no done recently. Dometic recommends yearly ( I think ). I waited seven years.

Silly me. I now remember the previous owner told me the water heater was propane only, not the fridge. So mistake on my part, not his. I somehow got it mixed up and thought both fridge and water heater were propane only.

Punishment
