Perfect liquid propane refrigerator for off-grid living.


Dometic Gas Refrigerator - 8 Cubic Feet (RGE400)

Remote or off-grid location? No problem! The Dometic is perfect for campgrounds, lodges, cabins, and remote houses or cottages. Rugged and reliable, some of these refrigerators have been in continuous use over 50 years because of their reliable design that uses no moving parts. Heat makes cold through the natural cooling power of evaporation. An ammonia mixture permanently sealed inside the service-free cooling unit is heated and generates a never-ending cycle of evaporation and condensation.

Dometic Gas Refrigerator - 8 Cubic Feet (RGE400) Features

  • Easy to use and install - no vent needed
    Light and control unit from front. Takes standard ⅜" female flared copper tubing connector.
  • Totally silent
    Those with access to electricity often purchase our Dometic refrigerators because they don’t want to listen to a noisy compressor. They also see a significant reduction in their electric bill. Fewer storage cells will be needed for your solar or wind-powered electric system.
  • No wear and tear
    The continuous absorption-type cooling unit is powered by the small amount of heat produced by the gas or kerosene burner. The liquid circulation of the unit is purely gravitational. There are no moving parts to wear out.
  • Constant cooling
    Conventional refrigerator compressors lower temperature then wait until the interior warms up before starting again. The Dometic maintains a constant cooling temperature - the flame never goes out.
  • Freezer temperatures stay below 0°F even in 100°F heat!
    Even on the hottest days, a Dometic will keep your ice cream frozen solid. Ice cream requires colder temperatures than almost any other frozen food. The Dometic works so well freezer temperatures stay below 0°F even in 100°F heat!
  • Electric option
    Plug in your Dometic to an AC outlet for backup power or full time use (though it is not nearly as efficient running on electricity). A heating element simply replaces the flame - still no compressor to go bad. One thermostat controls either gas or electric. Just turn a knob to switch from one fuel to the other.
  • Famous European craftsmanship
    The Swedish company Electrolux AB, a pioneer in gas refrigeration, manufactures our Dometic products. Their constant innovation makes them the undisputed world leader in gas refrigeration.
  • All the amenities
    Reversible doors; extra insulation; exterior drain; adjustable and removable shelves; interior light (requires four D batteries - not included); and the smooth, molded steel cabinet with rust-proof enameled finish and designer beveled edges mean no corners to trap dirt and bacteria.
  • Safety shutoff
  • CSA approved
  • 1-year warranty

It's hard to make an extra-large absorption-type refrigerator. As a result, really large gas refrigerators don't work very well. If you need more than 8 cubic feet of space, we recommend putting two of these units side-by-side. The reversible doors allow you to create your own 16 cubic foot double-door refrigerator.
