when my camper frig went out i slightly remodeled the frig area to fit an electric only frig. that might not be feasable if you move to different campgrounds. i am premanently parked. $120.00 is cheaper than a new camper frig, even a refurbished camper frig is $800.00. good luck.

any clues what is wrong?dometic-rm2611

Dometic has a recall involving several units and smelling ammonia is one of the problems due to cracks in the refridgeration unit. I had my fridge repaired under the recall. If I were you, I would go to their HSOforum and contact customer service to see if your unit is involved. For this you may need model, serial number and possibly date of manufacture.

It's going south fast. Try the recall thing and good luck. A friend of mine got someone to rebuild his for less than half the cost of new. He sold the unit right after that so I don't know if it would have lasted for very long.

My Dometic fridge doesn't work. I've tried the upside down trick, shaking it, and it doesn't produce cold. The coils heat up properly, it makes all sorts of gurgling sounds (none of my other Dometics made these sounds), but no cold.

Anyone know who I can talk to to see if it's repairable?

I really need the propane feature since I can't depend on AC power everywhere I go. Otherwise, a cheap AC fridge would work in my set-up...

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
