    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    I'll have to find a suitable material to make a baffle out of and i'll have to play around with fan positioning. With PC's the fan is usually directly on the heatsink, but i don't know if that would work the best in this application.

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    The new Marshall Excelsior regulator installed just fine. Leak tested it and saw nothing bubbling out. This one does have a port on the side (i realize the old one had a port on the other side, but it was recessed with an Allan screw. This one is a hex nut). I'm currently running the fridge on...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    EDIT: I decided to just go straight to a new regulator as they weren't too expensive. At least this will eliminate that as a possibility

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    Using my ThermPro that I use for my smoker since it has 2 probes, I kept one in the fridge and the other outside the fridge but inside the trailer to monitor the ambient temps. Note that I did not pre-cool the fridge with with 120V this time, this was only propane. Jul 9th 1:20pm - 76F/88F Jul...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    So after about 24 hours, the fridge was reading 54F which was lower than I saw it get before! Unfortunately after another 18 hours, the fridge was reading 65F... I'm not sure where to go now, maybe get the regulator checked/replaced? How low should I expect it to get?

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    OK! I got in there today and cleaned out the burner assembly, jet, flue and baffle. The jet was soaked in 99% alcohol and blown out with air as per the directions. I cleaned out the burner assembly with a stiff pipe cleaner, carb cleaner, alcohol and compressed air. I also wiped down all the...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    The furnace works (it gets REALLY hot. I grilled my shin on it in the middle of the night a few weeks ago. My leg looks like a grilled steak... The stove also seems to work fine, though I don't have a good frame of reference for if it's not working up to snuff, but blue flames come out and...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    I'm guessing your fridge is not actually a Dometic RM2193 though? That thermostat knob for the gas is like the one i have, but instead of numbers, it says high, med, low, off

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    I looked up that fan mod and the various versions of it here http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/dometicventing.pdf. It looks like option 3B is the one i want. I looked inside the fridge compartment and the baffles look like they are already there (the middle one for sure and it looked like there was...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    in page 9 of the manual, it states "On AC operation, the temperature is controlled by a thermostat. The thermostat knob (D, in FIG. 8) should be set to position 4-5 in normal working conditions." On propane, the knob does nothing to control the temperature, the only thing that does is the gas...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    I found the manual online and I think I'm going to take it one part at a time. I can handle the cleaning of the burner and the burner jet myself. if that doesn't cut it, I'll have to decide if i want to remove the fridge to try and clean the flue tube and baffle. In the mean time, I know a...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    The propane does not have a thermostat that can be changed. The thermostat is only for 120v operation. I figured after 4 days of running on propane, the temp should have dropped as well as switching from 120v to propane, it should have been able to maintain the temp if everything was already...

    Dometic 2193: Amazing on 120v, sucks on propane

    I just got back from another weekend of camping and on this trip, i noticed that my fridge basically failed at its job. I filled it with frozen water bottles before we set off and when we arrived at our site, i fired up the propane. Within the day, the fridge got to between 66-68F where it...

    Covering the PUP

    Finally had a break in the weather yesterday so i went out and covered the PUP. The 10-12 model is definitely on the large side. If I wanted to, I could cover the entire tongue of the trailer as well as the spare, but I was afraid of what the wind/snow load might do to it if I covered the...

    Covering the PUP

    I have a 10' box and it measures about 13' or so with the tongue. The 10-12 sounds like the right size for me.

    Covering the PUP

    Maybe it was the ADCO covers I was reading about, but someone recommended against covering the spare and tanks. In my case, the tanks are off the trailer so it's just the spare. I think I would play it safe with the 10-12'. Do you like your cover? Would you recommend it?

    Covering the PUP

    Due to some life events, I have yet to winterize my PUP. It has been raining a lot lately so I assume covering a wet PUP is a bad idea. Also, from what I have been reading on these forums, covering a PUP with a tarp is a bad idea! Since my pup is going to be stored outside exposed to the...

    Winterizing Tips

    Hey everyone. What tips do you have for winterizing a pup? I've read numerous stories on ehre about mice getting in their PUPs, but I don't know if that happened when they were closed up. I am going to be able to store my PUP indoors in my in-laws shop, but it is on rural property a long ways...
