If you went to a dealer in Dometic parts and the 120 volt and 12 volt elements for your model are the same diameter and length (they got them both out for you to compare) then I would not see any reason that you could not put a 120 volt element in the 12 volt element location. I would not do it if the original elements were not identical other than voltage.

Follow up, got a new heater rod, reamed the rust out of the extra tube as
impossible to get the old heater out with out damage. Works great. While I had the fridg out, discovered the area around the gas burner all rusted out, redid this are with galvanized sheet metal. Once the wind dies down here will check that out..was not cooling well on gas, figure I was loosing most of the heat.
