    Love my fridge in my camper! So made me think why not have one on my deck. Does anyone know if you could run one on natural gas?

    They make them but there not cheap. Better off running electric.

    I have seen them in the stores that cater to the Amish and Mennonite communities. They are big and way more expensive then an equivalent capacity electric fridge.

    You could convert it to run on natural gas with an orifice change. It may not cool quite as well because NG has less energy content than LPG. But that's all it would take. Good luck finding the correct orifice though. I wouldn't know where to begin.

    You can , but it dosent always work out well. Better to get the apliance that fits the usage. I did it on a gas grill.
