I plan to take a volt reading on the wires going in and then at the element post thermostat. Going to put the thermo on max and see how they compare. If they're the same, I'll disconnect the 12v element and check the resistance reading. BTW one of the 2 computer fans I installed got noisy and grinds to a stop. So much for $5 fans.
Made me wonder, though. How do people who have the 2 way fridges cope with temps when they're on the road? Run LP continuously?
Yes, they run on propane and 110 ac using the inverter. I never use dc, just not as much power/heat. I have found ac and propane to be about the same.
When I put the refer on ac from propane, it will use shore power if available then generator, then inverter - same for the tv.
