dometic AC to gas

is there any lag time in cooling, when u go from shorepower to propane ? fridge is working good on AC, when I go to gas, temp increases for several hours..... i'm gonna let it run on gas overnite, see what is does. on AC freezer is around 0, and fridge is 36-40...... on gas, after several hours freezer is about 10 and fridge goes up to 57. using a remote thermometer so I don't have to open door and get a bad reading...... i checked, and i am getting a flame, keep my fingers crossed

No lag time. Sorry no one replied sooner. I had a thermal coupler improperly installed on a new unit that was about a month old. The tech installed a new one because it burned improperly because the gap was way too far away to stay lit

Shouldn't be "lag time". Normally gas is a bit faster and better than electric.
