Trailer 'Fridge Broken

Lisa called yesterday with bad news: the refrigerator in the trailer at Fernley is broken. When she realized it, the perishables in the 'fridge were dead. Anything that was still salvageable she moved to the big refrigerator in the house; however, it's very inconvenient not having a refrigerator in the kitchen. Lisa says she will look into getting it repaired if possible, but we might have to buy a new one. On the bright side, Dometic still makes the model RM2510, and, lo and behold, it's made in the USA to boot. But it will probably cost between $800 and $1000, so Lisa would rather look into repair options first.

Removing the 'fridge is very inconvenient, because it's plumbed in to the propane system. (It's a dual-mode electric/propane model.) As she puts it, if she has to pull the 'fridge, she can't use any of the propane-powered appliances — like the furnace and stove — until a fix is in place. This is not something you want to do when the overnight lows are still below freezing.
