Probably a cost saving reason why regular RV propane/110Vac fridges aren't installed.
You are correct - the Danby unit in our unit only operates on shore power.
I don't see that as a reason for it not having a better door latching system. I really do not like the Danby unit in our unit because of them relocating the thermostat to the outside rear wall of the unit without thinking about accessability to it. I think that FR shares some of the blame here also.
Read my 04-06-12 rant in the Cedar Creek General Trailer and FW thread to see what I am talking about.
I don't think that I am the only one who couldn't reach the thermostat.
