The $40 element on EBay sounds very good and is great to read. I understand there could be more to the fix but I was thinking the worst.
If it hasn't been run on propane for a long time, you may need to clean the burner orifice and (while the burner is removed or protected) you should probably clean the rust of the the "chimney" above the burner. Old absorption fridges are dead-simple, if your propane system works there's a good chance you can get the fridge running on propane without too much trouble.
Oh, and kudos to the campground for covering your repairs, and curses to electricians who glance at a TT-30R 30-amp RV plug and just ASSume it's a 220-v dryer plug without ever bothering to read the text that's stamped on it for good reason.
