Testing propane fridge

I'm wanting to test a propane fridge installed in my trailer, the gas line still exits the floor but no propane system installed after the TEE forward.

Just looking for suggestions on what people use to connect appliances to propane long enough to test function. I want to test the fridge to determine next move. The 120v system works so I want to test to see if everything functions in the propane heater portion.

I can build a setup, but was hopeful some geniuses have a slick way that I'm not familiar with.


Thanks

If it works on 120VAC you are 80% of the way home. When I buy or sell a used LP refrigerator I have a regulator and flex hose from an old BBQ that I can hook up to a tank and then to a refrigerator for testing. The single stage regulator used on most BBQ's is more than sufficient. But, be sure to test it with the refrigerator level to the ground.

If the electric function works, most likely the propane will also work or can be fixed fairly easily. You should supply the propane with a copper line and flair fittings. Compression fittings for copper tubing SHOULD NOT be used with propane.

Be sure to test propane line for leaks...use a soapy water solution and look for any bubbles after you apply the solution....Ivory liquid dishwashing solution plus water is what I use...apply at any junction in line with propane valve on...Safety First!
