3way fridge, no 12v can it still run on lp.

Hello all. We're at a campsite abe I not getting enough 12v to run the panel on the fridge. The 12v I'll deal with when I get home. In the mean time can I get the propane to work for the fridge without any 12v?

Its a long shot. I figured cant hurt to ask

It depends on the fridge. Newer ones with electronic ignition require 12v. Older ones, and some new ones with piezo ignition, will run without 12v.

Fridges that have the 12v control board need the 12v to run, even to run off propane. Only the old-school style that has fully manual controls and no 12v input runs without the 12v (they still make a couple of models like that, but I think they're not commonly used.)
