Re: Why doesn't anyone use propane refrigeration on a boat?

Ron, I have to say I think I've got the only propane fridge in Brazil (as well as the only compoating toilet!). The previous owner, a very experienced German gentleman with 9 Atlantic crossings in this boat, installed it in 1997 during a complete refit. It's not a marine freezer. I believe it must be for the RV market (the brand is "Domec" I think). At any rate, it works very well and hasn't blown up yet! When it finally dies I'll be here asking for advice on 12v vs propane systems. Until then, it maintains the beer at exactly -3 degrees celcius. Who could ask for more?
