Tracer 270 Air questions

Hi, I would like to know if the Primetime Tracer 270 Air (2016) has an inverter on it that will allows you to run the refrigerator on DC voltage from the battery so as to trailer it and have the refrigerator workin.g. I know it has the propane option but really would like the inverter option. Also does anyone know the size of the propane tanks on the 270 Air.. 20 lb or 30 lb.
Thanks
Fred Z

I doubt it. Today's RV fridges are only 120v a.c. or 12v/propane (12v here is only to open/close gas valve and operate igniter). Unless you have a residential model, which I don't think they offer in the Tracer.

I have the 250 and the fridge is 2 way only. I think only tent trailers have 3 way fridges. The big fridge in a proper travel trailer would sap your battery super fast if run only on 12v power. Just push the auto button and let the fridge swap between 120 and propane as needed. It is fine to run it on propane while you travel.
