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...

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
