There is some good forum writings here - sometimes if you go to Google and type in your search topic then select the ExplorOz taglines you'll find a to search what you're looking for.
Our experience with a 3way is they are terrible on 12v, acceptable on 240v but best on gas. We owned a 35L Gasmate which would not get cold enough when camping through central Victoria during a hot spell in 2009. We were in Mildura when it was 45degrees and the fridge temp was 22degrees. I rang the manufacturer and they explained the best you could hope for with a 3way was 20degrees below ambient temperature, so the fridge was doing as well as it could, but meat, vegies and beer at 22degrees is not real good!
I've since sold it and bought a two way - far more expensive - but will work as a freezer if required when ambient is 45degrees!!
Good Luck with your search.

Hi Brenton,
What sort of information are your chasing?
Even tho there are many different models their workings are the same.
Whether it be a Chescold 3 way or a domestic 3 way found in a caravan or camper.
SERVICE MANUAL for Domestic RM360
Hope this is of some help to you.

Good afternoon all,
For what it is worth I have found that running on anything less than a 4 kg bottle size of gas becomes a rather expensive proposition using gas when camping.
Large cylinders have their safety considerations but I guess they are more economical.
Yours tropically, Harry
