Dometic fridge parts?

Hello everyone, I have a question about my original dometic refrigerator that still works on propane. I have a bad 110v heating element, does anyone know where I can buy a replacement element and a current part number.

Fridge Model MB 52c
Original part no. 17 06 79-01/3

When you remove the old one the wattage should be stamped in the body. Maybe on the end.

Another update, I did buy the replacement one from amazon. The part number matched the original number from 1969. But it doesnt fit. The original heater measures 19mm diameter by 7 1/8"long. The new replacement is 22mm x 6.5"long. New part will not fit in old hole. Sending that part back

Now its time to improvise. Went to Rv parts department when a older counter person was there, that knew about things. I ended up buying a Norcold #621702 heating element, this is the one with the bend at the end of it. Its rated at 300 watts instead of the 225watts. Diameter is about 15mm, the extra space in the heater holding tube i slid in bare copper stranded wire to fill in the space. I repacked the insulation back in. A few hours later the fridge is getting hot.

Checking back with the refrigerator. After a month of running with the new heating element, Ive had no problems.
