I have tried a lighter flint, and it is too small for the opening in the unit. I got several of them at the Airstream factory store a couple of years ago, maybe they still have some. If not, the Dometic service people may be able to help you.

Thanks for the help,

hello ,
I tend to think the concern is the smoker with the cigarette throwing it down near the pump,but since its a gas station signs need to be posted .if your fridge flame was right at the pump side behind the louvered vent ,so
as to be in close proximity I would be inclined then to have the fridge off
in that case .I am not familiar with the years airstream put the fridge flame
right near the outside under that door .I would say thats the obviouse reason
the flame blows out .Mine lights inside at the electric button and there is no
outside anything except the vent to the roof .so I can see concerns with the
those trailers that have the flame so exposed to the outside .

try a power inverter

My Dad plugs his 2 way frdge into a 500W power inverter when under way in his Moho, since the 110v element doesnt pull very much.
Ill be setting that up on the Dometic M60 in my 63 Avion.
Well see how it goes....

Question towing with fridge on

I thought it was against the law to tow with the L P turned on. ?? my fridge burner won't light anyway but a container of ice keeps it cold all day.
