I just bought a Campster and the propane refrigerator did not work. My next door neighbor told me to take it out and set it upside down. I removed it and left it sitting upside down for about 3 hours and reinstalled it. IT WORKED! The refer is getting cold.
I am a happy camper, as I was going to CW Monday and buying a new refer.
Hope this helps someone else.
John

Three hours may not be enough. When mine had the same problem back in late 60s, I turned it upside down for about 4 hours. It stopped working after a week. I turned it upside down again for 2 days. It was still working when I sold the trailer 2 years later.

Thanks for the advice. If my refer goes out again I will keep it in mind. I checked it this AM and it is down to 33 degrees
