Looking for propane fridge
 
Hi my husband and myself purchased a house in Cozumel off grid. We are having a terrible time finding a propane fridge. Anyone with any thoughts?

This is what I'd do, in this order:


I'd check Home Depot in Playa


I'd walk down 30th in Playa from Juarez all the way through Colossio, stopping at every hardware/appliance/gas/plumbing/repair store along the way asking for leads.


I'd ask Absolute Al if he has one in his bodega


I'd check Mercado Libre, Amazon Mex, Vivaannuncios, Andale, etc...


Daytrip to Cancun and check out the markets


Weekend trip to Mexico City and check out the markets


Install solar and use an electric fridge


Use dry ice


Give up and stop eating food that needs regrigeration


Good luck:D

There is a page on Facebook called "Friends of Paamul." See if you can join it. If not, message me here and I'll see what I can do. Lots of people in Paamul are updating their palapas by pulling out the old trailers and replacing them with concrete structures. There might be someone getting rid of a trailer that contains a still functional propane fridge. Some kind of converter may need to be involved; I'm not certain. I believe the fridge brand is called "Dometic."

Check out RV forums for Dometic fridges.

Find someone there who will work on them.

Word to the wise.

You may need to have a quality one shipped in from somewhere else, or find a different solution. Maybe high end RV owners are ripping out the Dometics and replacing them with a residential fridge

If you find one , there is no compressor or pump or really any moving parts, they are real simple in operation. If it lights and the fire will stay lit they work, and will cool, as along as there is no leaks your good to go.
