My camper is at a seasonal spot where it will sit most week days (shore power) until we come down on the weekend. We bring fresh food down with us, so we don't store much food in the fridge while we're not there. Mostly just condiments and beverages. Even my old electric/gas fridge had to be switched over to LP manually with a button. So unless I'm running on LP from the get go, a power outage wouldn't matter. It won't automatically switch over to propane in the event of a failure, will it?
I wouldn't want to run the fridge on LP during the week while I'm not there. I shut the LP tanks down when I'm not there.
Plus the residential fridge is so much bigger. I can't wait to have my first season this year with a residential fridge.
