Absorption Refigeerator

i have a a '73 Prowler we use as a guest room and in is a Magic Chef R 54 fridge. it works Great on prpane but electrical 110v heat strip is not working. i have an idea to put a projector bulb next to the chimney to make heat! the projector bulb is hot enough to give you 3rd degree burns real quick. is this maybe over kill, or any other ideas as i haven't found a source of spare parts.
Thank You, Two Toms

Why not get a dorm size fridge for the "guest room". Home Depot or Lowe's for less than $125.00.

Your heating element is a 135 Watts at 110 Volts, Just make sure both wires a black !
Very important!

I agree with PhoneDude that a small residential refrigerator is a very good solution since you will be using it with shore power. In addition to having more cooling capacity, the residential type refrigerator will use less than half the electricity that the RV refrigerator uses. Just be sure there's room for air to circulate around the external cooling coils. You'll have to close off the original refrigerator's outside openings.
