Cool 72 Domentic Refrigerator

New owner old ride.


My refrigerator is not getting cold I believe thereís no ammonia left in the reservoir. What is the water ammonium mixture or is it straight ammonia for these refrigerators??

The heating element in the propane work great refrigerator is not cooling any help would be great.

Thank you.

72 dometic direct / close replacement

hi all, i'm in need of a direct replacement for the 1972 Dometic from my 1972 31'
any tips on best place to buy and replacement ... I'm thinking propane 3way is best as I like to be off-grid sometimes and don;t want to invest in a crazy expensive solar / battery system ..

if I went with a 12v fridge .. could a simple single solar panel attached to my battery be adequate?
thanks

Probably not if you are off of shore power for more than a day. On a shady day not even that long.

Depending on the specific model, you can get a replacement cooling unit.
