3rd AC in under 2 years
The link above is my original thread with this issue. Thread was started in May 2014 just prior to me having an A/C replaced in June 2014 for the 2nd time leaving me with the 3rd unit on the camper in less than 2 years. Three months after that warranty replacement in June (09/2014 labor day weekend), we were already skeptical that the unit was again showing signs of failure, but I wasnt sure because it was a humid, muggy weekend and we had a lot of bodies going in and out of the camper for a good part of the one full day at the campsite.
I used the camper once in March of this year and once more in May and it was obvious that it was not cooling as it should be able to which I confirmed by measuring the temperature delta between return and register air.
Camper purchased NEW with original AC was 11/2012, first AC replaced 10/2013, second AC replaced 06/2014, 11/2014 marks 2 years from original date of purchase, Mar-May 2015 the third AC in this camper is already ineffective under any conditions.
I have been in contact with the RV manufacturer for advise, the local authorized Dometic dealer and of course Dometic. Of course, Dometic is the only one who denies any potential problem with the Dometic product.
Just this week, when I spoke with the local RV dealer who had been doing my previous replacements, I was informed that Dometic had indeed found a "problem". There was a bulletin out earlier this year on a certain percentage of BA II 15k units which covered a time period including all of 2013, 2014 and Jan Feb Mar 2015.
I feel like its reasonable for me to continue to ask Dometic to honor these units outside of their typical warranty protocol, considering the events that have happened. Not one of these units has lasted more than 6-9 months.
Any thoughts otherwise?
