I'm looking at a used camper.( one owner and i know the owner). the lady's husband passed away last year and she doesnt know the anwer to my question so I'm sure someone here will know.

the refrigerator operates on 12V, 110 or propane depending on the setting.
how does the propane feature work? do you lose any propane during the process?
I had one person to tell me the propane cirulates to cool it down and you dont lose any.

It does consume propane. Very little I might add. The 12volt just works the control board. I leave mine on all the time, when I am plugged in it runs on 110, when I unplug the camper from shore power my fridge automatically switches over to propane. Good luck, we love our camper.

propane works great if its level and doesnt use much gas. Reminded me of another story on myself. 25 years or so ago I had truck camper with the threeway frige. Headed to Big Sandy to hunt one sat after work , stopped in Mcewen at a beer joint, left there late , decided unsafe to drive, stopped in Waverly on side of road. left frige on battery. work up Sun morn with terrific hangover and dead battery. Any idea how many places open on sun morn in Waverly ? zero . finally hitchiker to a servise station waited two hours for his relief to come in before he could leave. All my buddies are in Big Sandy wondering where I am and why they had to sleep in their trucks ? Don't think I saw any deer either ! Another lesson learned the hard way.

The propane is great for times when you don't have electricity or are on the road. Usually the fridge has an "auto" switch that will automatically switch over to propane if it doesn't sense the 110v needed. This is also great as a backup feature.
