Customer Question

I have a new 5th wheel with a DM2852LBFX refrigerator. We camp a lot in remote areas with just battery power, and this has a fan that seems to run about all of the time.
- Is it okat to take out the in-line fuse and shut the fan off? Will it still work ok on electric (120) or propane?
Thanks,
Bob
