Replacement refrigerator.....

I'd like to replace an existing Dometic electric/propane refrigerator with a new unit. Some input regarding other people's experiences with other brands would help. Also, Does anyone have experience/ opinion regarding 12 volt units? Since it's part of a larger rebuild, fit ans cosmetics issue are not paramount. Functional issues are more important.

Thanks in advance for any input.

I prefer Dometic,I would go with the biggest you have room for,as far as 12 v,I think a tank of propane will last a lot longer than a couple of batteries if you are planning on be off the grid.If you are plugged in then the 120 v should work. Dave

I'll never buy another Dometic refrigerator. Quality has definitely gone down over the past few years.

Ref. Replacemant Info?

Go to the forum interface, then to Interior restoration, then click on Refrigerators and you will find most everything you need to know. I replaced one in 65 Safari restoration last summer and found the info in this forum very helpful..... Tim

Title spelling error - replacemant should be replacement.... sorry.
