Need Dometic RM60a propane valve for 1971 Revcon

Hi all. Iíve been restoring the interior on my 1971 Revcon with original Dometic RM60a propane and electric refrigerator.

The fridge is working fine on both electric and propane but Iíve got a gas leak in the switch / valve located on the back of the fridge that is accessed from the outside panel. Anybody have a replacement valve available if you are ditching your fridge?

Or suggestions on where to find a replacement? Or how to rebuild it? I tried a store in Indiana that has a bunch of vintage fridge parts but they didnít have it. Sorry, forgot thei name of the top of my head, but they had purchased a bunch of old Dometic parts and did supply me with a door gasket!

Hereís a photo of the part. It is not the on/off toggle, it is the propane valve that I need. Let me know!

Jeff

Have you checked with an appliance repair shop for a gas shutoff valve?
Should be a 3/8"

Those valves leak from non-use. I found if you work them back and forth, they would eventually stop leaking. They have a grease coating. The grease dries out and hardens up, and then they leak. They are nothing special. As noted above, you can by the same type valve at any home center.
