Unhappy Dometic woes

Our 1303 AES Dometic fridge has decided to act up. It wont run on 120 volt and on LP wont stay lit. I quess it is time for a new fridge I am told the circuit board will need replacing (at a major cost). Any thoughts or suggestions for a new fridge Norcold or Dometic or a household model. Any suggestions that might be simple fixes for the current fridge

I just replaced the control board in my refrigator and works fine now. It is easy to replace just sort of plugs in.

The previous owners of our unit replaced the RV style fridge with an apartment type 120 VAC only unit. So far it has worked fine for us. Last weeks trip was 5 hours and everything was cold when we arrived at our destination. When boondocking I fire up the Honda EU2000i during the day, and keep ice bags inside during the night. The freezer in this thing is unbelievable
While a 120 VAC fridge might not be for everyone, it works for us and they are only around $300 at HD or Lowes.

BTW, we added velcro strips to keep the doors shut during transit.
