keith, i'm with u, freezer is colder, fridge is warmer on gas....... I don't get it. I did just get a new regulator for propane tanks....... stove and hot water appear to working normal, but when I try to switch tanks (I know both are full) I lose pressure (little window on regulator turns red). maybe bad diaphragm is screwing up pressure

Probably not (it IS pretty tall), but I would not want to spray water up there either. A real compressor would do the job, but many folks don't have that kind of equipment.

And where might that "somewhere else" be?

The only non-commonality between AC and propane heat is the ability to transfer that heat to the ammonia.

Barring the OP doing something different between the two heat sources that causes radically different interior temperatures, I still think heat transfer affecting just propane should be looked at.

The freezer is much better insulated than the "ice box" and it gets first crack at whatever "coldness" is in the ammonia.

Two items: check burner shutter for adjustment and is gas orifice too big or small (restricted) compare shape and size of flame to Dometic reference photos.

Now this is possible! A yellow flame will cause minimal heat transfer as well as a blocked flue.
