From day one my small Dometic fridge has never cooled as well as I thought it should. So did the usual things like stuff more insulation around it, seal it off from the backside with foil tape, added a fan, etc.
Each item seemed to help out the electric side but the propane operation would never be as good.
So after it lost nearly 20 degrees coming home in an hour and a half last trip I was ready to rip it out. And yes it was lit when we left.
Started searching the web and everything all pointed to either the orifice or the gas pressure. Well it had a nice blue flame. So I rigged up a manometer from instuction I found online and checked the pressure.
THREE INCHES WATER COLUMN!
How was anything working on propane?
Replaced the regulator and problem solved. Fridge was at 25 degrees!
It's never been that cold. Ever.
I've been cussing the wrong appliance all along.
Two and a half seasons and the regulator has apparently been slowly crapping out from the day we pulled it off the lot.
So to all the folks with Dometics that don't cool worth a crap on propane you just might want to check your gas pressure or have it checked if you're nervous about fooling with it.
