Where in ON are you?
Panda Propane in Holland Landing (S of Barrie) is good. $ but good.
Gannon's RV (I think) rebuilds them, they are near St. Thomas. Check posts by Alf S. he has mentioned the place a number of times.

If looking for a used one, don't limit yourself to Fiberglass Trailers. The RM211 came in a lot of different trailers. Have you tried looking at one of the fridge troubleshooting publications in the document centre?

The RM211 is one of the most common propane fridges. They were put in many pop up campers. I don't see any on kijiji in Ontario at the moment. Keep looking, they come up often.

Carol a few people here have had success with bring an old fridge back to life by pulling it out of the trailer and turning it on its side and leaving it for a day and then turning it upside down and leaving it for another day or so.

It may be worth a try. Keep in mind that its hard to tell if the fridge is working or not due to the fact it makes no sound when working and often takes several hours to cool down.

An explanation for why turning it upside down may work can be found at RV Refrigerator Stop Working? Tips for Repairing vs Replacing it.

WHat mode?

In order for any of us to give you any advice we need to know what mode isn't working and are other modes working. The RM211 is a 3 way fridge, meaning it is designed to work on 120 Volt AC, 12 Volt DC, and propane.
Which mode is not working? Or is it all modes?
