Thumbs up

I just bought this 16' Amerigo and was lucky enough to find the manual on the trailer.....thanks to this forum. I was needing the manual for the Domestic 45 Refrigerator that is in the trailer....I think it's the original one. It works on electric but, would like to see how to work it for the propane. If anyone has a manual or an idea on how to work this thing it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

If you have a Dometic fridge there are a lot of manuals here already.

Maybe one of these will be close enough to help you out.

Hi:Sherry... A call to Scamp's 800# might be able to help. Sometimes if the fridge hasn't been run on propane for a while the parts get a bit rusty and the flame is not too strong/ or won't stay lit. If it was me I would have it checked and cleaned by a qualified Tech and while doing that... he just might show you the proper way to light it. $Best money you might spend$

Hi alf,
Thanks, I'll probably have to go that route. I didn't even think about the pipes getting rusted. Although it is an old fridge. I was hoping I wouldn't have to spend a lot of $ to get it going. They have a 2hr min. here and plus you pay the driving time. But, it might be well worth the $$$ to make sure it's safe and properly connected. I'd love to keep this one I really like it and the newer ones have changed so much.
Thanks

I looked and didn't see the one for the model I have and am not too sure which one I'd need. ? My father wanted me to get ahold of one so maybe he could look at it and maybe fix it. I might just have to have a pro come and take a look at it.

Sherry,

I changed my email address and of course forgot my old password so I had to renew my registration. I do have a manual and would be happy to send you a copy. Just email me back with your information and I will be happy to send you a copy. Thanks,

Gina
