    I have a 2006 Coleman pop up with a 3.2 cubic ft 3 way fridge. We had a rat get into the camper over winter and chewed through almost all the wiring on the refrigerator. I tried rewiring it but it's still not working, my be a short somewhere or missed a chewed wire. Any way, I really don't want to spend $900+ to replace it since I do not really ever use the 12V or Propane as power sources.
    I can buy a 120V fridge for under $200. Does anyone know whether or not there might be an issue installing a regular 120V fridge and plug it right into the same outlet that the old one was plugged in to?

    No problem assuming the 120v wiring is good. It will just take awhile to cool when first plugged in.

    They are cheap and fit right into the hole. No mod necessary.

    A 120v compressor fridge will cool much faster and the temps will be more stable

    Tbh , i always thought about turning the fridge around so you could acess it from out side. Build a partition wall on the interior. But then it would be on the opposite side that you set up on.
