Trying to setup a camping cabin with no electricity. Lights will be
solar power or coleman lanterns. The stove will be propane and wood.
Water pump will run on a generator. But the refrig is a problem. I
know they used to have propane refrigerators, do they still sell them
I don't think there are any full size LP refrigerators available in the
US anymore, but RV refrigerators which can be had in fairly large sizes
are commonly available as 3 way AC/DC/LP but they aren't cheap. You
could plumb a couple 100# LP tanks to supply the fridge, lanterns, stove
and generator so you deal with a single fuel type.

Damby makes them too. The DPR2262W is discontinued, but you might find
one in stock somewhere.
Or just contact Lehman's Hardware in Kidron Ohio. They carry a full
Lehman's in Kidron (Dalton), OH has such stuff. See:

Lehman's has just about any "off grid" and non-electric appliance since they
started out serving the Amish community in Ohio about 60 years ago. I
always schedule an hour or so to look through their store whenever I'm in
the area. I like to take the grandkids and play "guess what that is?"
Because propane is safe enough to be used as the heat source in domestic
(and even mobile!) absorption refrigerators, but not safe enough to be
used as the working fluid (R290) in a regular (vapor compression)
domestic A/C system.
Makes sense to me...
