Late to the thread but here's my .02: Our 2011 3-way works fine (not cold cold, but cold enough) on gas & AC, no issues like you describe, so I'd say definitely what you're seeing is not normal.

I have also noticed that mine seemed to run cooler on gas. Took it out a couple of weeks ago and actually had to turn down to minimal cooling because it was dropping down into the low 20s. This was our first time using it, and it was WAY cooler than I would have expected.

Tested in propane mode

So I finally got around to seeing how my fridge functioned off propane. With it being 15 degrees out, AC got it down 4. After a few more hours on propane at the max, it became a freezer at -8 degrees. So I think it's safe to say there's nothing wrong with my unit

Final update for this thread, I hope.

Had my unit at the dealership for an unrelated matter and had them test the fridge while I was there. Turns out it was out of spec. They replaced the element and now it definitely works as it should. It never worked as well as it does now. So thanks for the feedback and advising that my experience didn't sound quite right. Cheers.
