Question about Dometic RM2193 Compact Refrigerator With Ice Box
I have a Dometic 2193 3 way fridge. It works great on AC power. It does not work on propane as well. The flame was not mostly blue on high so I cleaned the burner and burner jet as recommended in the owner's manual. The flame is now a lovely shade of blue :) I put the fridge on AC and cooled it to 40F. I switched it to propane and after 4 hours it was at 50F. The flue baffle is hot to the touch. The outside temp is 85-90 and quite humid so if I had turned the fridge off entirely after the same amount of time the fridge would have been much warmer inside. It seems like the propane is working but not enough. Any help would be appreciated.
The flue baffle was the solution that worked for me as well. Below is a response I posted to a similar post.
I had a similar problem. The flue would get hot and the cooling tubes would get "warm". The refrig would get a LITTLE cool but nothing to be of any help.
I solved it though...it turns out there is a "flue baffle" (twisty little metal thing) that is supposed to hang in the inside of the baffle. It hangs from a screw found on top of the baffle and it is supposed to hang down.
The screw that held mine was corroded and flue baffle had fallen into the baffle and landed on top of the burner.
I ended up fishing the flue baffle out of the top of the baffle with a coat hanger, then rehanging it using a new screw. That solved my problem.
Not sure if this will work for you or not but good luck.
By the way, you can find an owner's manual with a diagram showing the flue, the flue baffle, and the piece of metal holding it here:
Look on p.9, figure 9. Item C is the flue baffle and the wire holding it. Item B is the screw that was corroded on mine, and ended up dropping the baffle down to the bottom of the flue.
Below is a link to some generic directions on solving fridge-related problems. I found it to be VERY useful.

Go up on top of your coach, remove the refrigerator vent. That will give you access to the chimney on the fridge. Remove the flue cap, and there will be a little metal hook hanging on the side. Pull this up, and there will be a spiral baffle attached. Look for debris on the baffle, clean if necessary. Also, the bottom edge should be straight, not chewed up.
Also check your orifice in the burner tube as well. If the orifice is clogged, it may not allow enough LP gas to flow, giving a low flame.
