Up to you of course!

Gotta take the fridge out anyways to fix it, wouldn't take long to try it.
It's actually not that bad to remove. I had mine out on the floor in about half an hour.

Short term fix? Like anything, it's a tumble of the dice.
6 years later mine was still going strong, and I know the guy I sold it to. Last time I talked to him it was still working.

Good luck on your repair, hope it doesn't cost too much. [emoticon]

Let us know the outcome.

OK, I will give it a try. I think the fridge will fit though the door of the camper. I will take closer measurements this weekend. The camper is at Gull Point State Park on Lake Okoboji Iowa right now. That is about 1.5 hours south of me. To get a spot for the 4th of July I had to set it there 14 days in advance at $16 a day. When I am down there this weekend I will take better measurements and look for a plug to put in the propane line.

After I come back from that park on the morning of the 5th I work until Friday the 8th and then I have a camping spot at a county park only 35 minutes from home. I will remove the fridge at the park and try your suggestion. I'll take along a old car battery and I should be able to tell if it works at the park.

After that I come home and work for a week.

Then the weekend of July 16th and 17th I'm taking some kids down to Arnolds Park Amusement Park on Lake Okoboji Iowa. It's a small amusement park but, in the 80's the were going to turn it into condos. It was saved by chartable events and is now a non-profit. I try to support them by taking some low income kids there every year and paying for their day at the park.

The week of July 18-23 I'm towing an old pop up camper I bought that I named "Plan B" to the Minnesota's north shore of Lake Superior that's about a 6 hour drive for me. I have 6 days to see the whole north shore and Duluth. It will be a busy week.

I come back from there on a Monday and work Monday afternoon until Thursday morning.

Then I hook up to the main camper again and head to MN Whitewater State Park 3 hours east of me for 3 days.

Then I have a wedding the first weekend in August and a concert to go to that weekend.

Then I have to stay home for a week while my boss takes a week off to go camping.

Then I have the weekend of August 19-20 planed to go to a county park a hour south of me.

Then I work for a week.

Then I go to MN Camden State Park 1.5 hours north of me for a weekend.

Then I don't have anything planned in September.

So, as you can see this was not a good time for something to break. I wish I could just hire someone to fix it for me local but, there is no one around here. Hopefully shaking it around fixes it.

It really sucks that it broke but, ship happens, I guess.
