I have an older dometic 3 way in my '78 Trillium
and the DC works fine for me, you just have to remember to turn it off for stops of more than an hour. I always start it on AC at home and stuff it with everything cold and switch it to DC while towing. I found the DC to be less sensitive to needing to be level and the AC the most sensitive, but after reading the "how it works" post above I guess this could just be my imagination. Once I get to where I am going I use propane
, assuming that there is no AC. Once I forgot to switch from propane
to DC as I broke camp and drove about 1000 KMs with it on. The pilot never blew out and I drove through rain, winds, etc. The way the pilot and burners are setup I am not sure how the fridge
would catch on fire. The one thing that I know that is super important is to make sure the back of the fridge
is properly sealed to the inside of the camper shell or you might not wake up! I bought a combination CO2 and Propane
alarm because I love being alive.
