Fridges are usually standard units and usually, while fiddly, able to be
removed. If three way they have 12 volt, mains and gas connections. So,
unless you can cope with electric wiring and gas pipes, are best left to the
experts. The question has to be - why did the fuses, (or miniature circuit
breakers), not blow before the fire started? If the gas had been left lit
and connected with the 12 volts also powering the unit while on the move,
there could have been an overheating.
