Dometic 2852 fridge just died...looking for some options

It didn't just die it puked ammonia..woke up in the middle of the night to that nasty ammonia stink and a dead fridge.

So while my temp fix of a college size fridge is outside cooling down and hopefully not tossing out all our food........now the thought is..what options.

I am aware of the options of new cooling unit a re manufactured cooling unit or a new Dometic 2852...thats not my question.

Rather what "other" fridge options are there. I never use propen..we seasonal. AFter waking up to a 5th wheel full of ammonia stink..not a fan of another propane based cooling system since I think thats what uses ammonia,,,IIRC.

Has anyone put in a residential in the place of a 2852 in their 5th wheel. How did it look. I don't want some tardo looking thing or I will just gag up the $1200.00+ for a new dual frudge.

Or maybe another RV fridge just not a dually?

I would do more searching but I have a mess on my hands at the moment. Got to get this fridge out as it keeps stinking of ammonia...blehhhh
