I see a lot of people on here who talk about losing refrigeration and their food spoiling, there are alternatives to electricity. Most RVs have refrigerators that run on propane. We used to have a freezer that ran on kerosene or diesel. It had an alladin lamp burner that heated a ball with ammonia in it to compress the gas and valves to let it expand back out to cool the freezer.you could probably modify any rv refrigerator to work with a heat source. Has anyone ever performed a mod like this?
