It’s finally done! After replacing the cooling unit on my Norcold motorhome refrigerator I found that I had damaged the propane line when I originally wrestled it out. Hence the lesson learned: Pay attention and don’t rush things. I didn’t disconnect everything before trying to pull it out.
The electric mode worked fine but the pinhole leak prevented me from using it in gas mode. I put it off for a while because to fix it, I would have to pull the whole fridge out again and dig into the wood floor below the unit. I finally forced myself to do it today.
I went to Lowes and bought 10 feet of 3/4 inch copper tubing and some flare connectors. The damage to the line was too close to the floor to work with so I found the connection below the RV where it connected to the main line. I disconnected it and pulled out the whole branch.
After flaring one end I connected it to the main line and pushed the rest up through the existing hole in the floor. I bent the tube around and cut it off to line up with the connection on the fridge valve solenoid. I flared the other end and hooked it up. After testing the connections with a little soapy water I fired it up. It was wonderful to hear the electronic lighter spark up the gas burner with a lovely woosh.
I can finally mark “Refrigerator” off my to do list. Woo hoo! Damn I’m good. Damn I’m tired.
