We don't travel much - mostly stationery.
The "Norcold N82 fridge
" was a fine fridge. The regular fridge is a good option if you are not off of shore power (120VAC) often.
As stated "reviews of the new Norcold aren't encouraging
", thus I would do as suggested above, rebuild the fridge you have if you decide you want the flexibility of the absorption fridge.
Regarding "Stopped cooling both fridge and freezer
I assume the lights are on, so the fridge has power?
You checked the fridge on both LP Gas and Electric?
TIP: If the Norcold recall boiler housing thermal switch trips, no power will go to the fridge, therefore #1, the lights would be off.
The recall thermal switches trip for no apparent reason, usually age. It is rare that heat trips them.
We do have videos on YouTube for replacement of cooling units if you decide to go this route. We show some important tips and tricks.
Hope this helps, let us know if you have further questions
