Propane Refrigerators by Dometic!
The Dometic RGE400 gas refrigerators are
being discontinued (they already discontinued the kerosene
models a while back). In fact, they’ve already stopped
manufacturing them, but they have maybe ~250 left,
but they will probably be no more by spring/summer of 2018.

holds 2-liter bottles. Patented "fingers" hold bottles of any size
in place, yet allow easy removal. The base-mounted control panel
houses the gas/electric selector, temperature control, piezo
ignitor, and flame safety valve. Just set the desired cooling
level, and the combined electric and gas thermostat maintains it.

situations. The absorption-type cooling system is quiet and

WHAT TRUCK FREIGHT ENTAILS: The best rate for
truck freight shipping is to have you pick it up at the local
freight terminal or commercial drop point. A residential
delivery is usually $40 to $45 more than a business delivery,
and, a lift gate (which drops the goods off at ground level), is
another $80 to $100 in additional fees. Inside delivery is
an additional cost on top of that.
Know someone with a truck? Can you have a dolly or hand cart on
hand? If you can mobilize a couple of strong bodies, you
might be able to save $80 to $120 or so!

NOTE ABOUT RECEIVING TRUCK
FREIGHT ITEMS: Do not sign for anything
until you have inspected your unit. You have spent good money on
this, and it was shipped in good condition. If you don't
inspect it, and open the unit at home and find 'hidden damage',
there is no recourse for a truck freight claim. All claims for
damage MUST be made at the time of receipt of the unit!
Note any damage on the bill of lading before signing off--it's a
relatively easy process to get a new unit or replacement parts
if you do so. But not if you don't inspect it! Also,
don't refuse an obviously damaged unit. You will still be
charged for it, as we will also be by our suppliers.
Freight damage is very rare (FORTUNATELY!), but proper
documentation and reporting of any damage will expedite the
