You've got a good constant, 12vdc source to fridge ? It's relighting when called for on propane operation ? Flame is aligned under tube, and good strong flame ? You've cleaned stack well & baffle ? No restriction above fridge, that would reduce airflow ? (sometimes insulation has been known to fall over, causing some flow restriction, but it should affect AC cooling too. Double check you don't have rust lodged in the tube above burner flame, especially between burner, and height where AC element is attached to side. A large flake of rust just below height of AC element, would maybe explain why o.k. on AC but not propane? Another thing that comes to mind, is if it has a thermistor attached to fins inside fridge area, try moving it over a couple to the left, and see if that makes a difference. If the fin it's attached to is frosted over, thaw it with blow dryer & try to go to next fin without frost. Here's a link that may help. Click on installation & owners manual PDF & go to "failure of fridge". ( )
