Why would you spend $1,000+ on solar panels to run a fridge when you can run the 3 way Dometic on gas for 28 days for a 9kg cylinder (312g/day). I only use my fridge on 12v when towing, switch to gas when camped, and plug in to 240v when at a c/park or home?

I'm not a great fan of gas fridges, friends have lost a van through one, as for the solar panels I bought them on special for under $500.00 which I made when I sold the 3way fridge
