While some RVers swear by residential refrigerators because they run on propane, others hate the hassle of refilling propane tanks and prefer an AC/DC compressor fridge. This article covers the pros and cons of both types.
The fridge isn’t cold enough
If the refrigerator isn’t cool, you may have a problem with the cooling coils or the 120-volt DC coach battery. If the latter, check to make sure the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped or that the fridge is plugged into its dedicated outlet (usually found in an exterior lower access panel).
The fridge smells bad
The refrigerator smells bad when there’s a build-up of ammonia sediment in the absorber or a problem with the coolant flow through the boiler. This usually happens when you leave your rig unused for an extended period of time, which allows the sediment to restrict the liquid ammonia’s flow. The good news is that you can often fix this problem by draining the system, using a deodorizer, and cleaning the refrigerator.

This RV refrigerator is also great for smaller rigs because it can be powered by either gas or electricity.
