Trailer: Trillium 13 ft

I recently bought a '79 Trillium. It has been great touring around the East coast last summer with my wife and daughter.
Unfortunately the fridge does not work any more and I was wondering what my options are.
Will I have to replace it or are there some common problems I could fix?
Cheers,
Garrett

as almost all the parts are still available for these, I'd try to fix it first. new ones are costly.
we even have a guy locally that specializes in them

Help us out here. What, exactly, does "fridge does not work any more" mean? Does it work on propane, but not electricity? Or vice-versa? Can you get any cooling out of it? When you look in the back, is there any yellow powderish looking residue on the pipes? Is there a lingering ammonia smell?

All of those things will help give us an idea of what's wrong with it.

Also, remember that these are ammonia absorption refrigerators, not compressor-driven like you have at home. After starting, it will take from eight to twelve hours for them to cool adequately.

Please give us a little more info and we might be able to save you a ton of money.

Roger
