Propane will be the real test.

You should test it while you have hot weather. Open that thing up like you would in the real world.

As we are all looking for a solution, and I have to say...it is awesome to have our own Escape Research Lab for Dometic! Thank you all for continuing to tinker, this info is definitely making it to Dometic.

I did receive a tidbit from the guru's in Germany. Apparently the higher rated fridges have more insulation in the fridge box, especially the door. They are sending me a couple of these doors to try...but unfortunately I don't expect to see the hot days needed to properly test the door this summer. Maybe I can send a door to someone in Texas...if it is still hot there

It is really great news to find the door leak (thanks Alf) which is a fairly easy fix to gain some cooling. If a better insulated door adds a couple of more degrees...we getting there!

That's a great test. If it works on AC it should be able to on gas.

As an Escapee whose build hasn't started yet, I am more convinced than ever that my decision to order an Escape was the right one. Thank you, Reace for your hard work
and perseverance.
