He may be referring to it cooling quicker on propane than electricity. Propane may heat the coils quicker.

Can't really confirm, have always been told, and read a few articles that state the frig is more efficient (at getting cold) on propane because of more heat being produced. Our experience shows that (not scientific) it does cool better on gas.

That just what we have always been told. I seem to remember reading a tech article at some point. Now, I will say, we do not have 2016 trailer. Ours is a 2003. Technology may have changed. Ours clearly cools better on gas. Just by inside temp.

Our frig still requires battery to run on gas.
