dometic refrigerator questions

1. who knows where i can order the simple plastic flat door clips / piece that clips on on body of refrig and door and secures door in slightly open position for defrost after camping. I bought some big white plastic pieces from but they dont secure anything, might as well leave the door all the way open. i think the flat ones may have come with the dometic refrigerator but i was wondering if anyone knows anyone that sells them, having been able to find online yet.

2. our dometic refrig wouldnt work with propane, it works with electric but when trying with propane the check light comes on. got any ideas. i still have to check the burner tube for debris, but i covered external holes over winter so i dont expect any blockage

1) There's a couple of items that I found...the first one is called No Mold (Reference only) -

The second one is a rod with suction cups - (reference only)

I usually just throw a hand towel or cotton shop towel over the top of the door and it works fine as long as the door doesn't swing open on it's own.

2) Does the check light come on after trying it a few times? Mine did that a couple of times last year and my manual told me to just turn it off and then back on again. Sometimes it took 3 times to get it lit if there was any air in the lines. I guess it primes itself after a few on and off cycles. Just a thought since yours sounds fairly new.

Where we've been:

2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Auto 5.9 Diesel

the first one i have, it works ok if you arent travelling, probably as good as the towel approach you suggested. the second may work while travelling , i may try it.

i did try the reignite several times without success, not a new rv , it is a 2000. i may try some more the next time i go , not a big deal since campgrounds we visit have electric

thank you for your response

have a nice and safe camping season

After turning on my gas tank valve, I verify gas IS there by BRIEFLY turning on one of the gas stove burners. THEN when gas IS present, turn fridge on in gas mode, and it'll usually fire right up after 3 or 4 clicks. Just a thought! Randy

Did you have the recall work done?
If so is it possible they turned your valve off and now it's hard to see? I can barely get my hand in there now to turn on the gas valve. Also check all of your terminal connections to be sure there's no corrosion.
As for the door clips I believe what you are looking for actually came from Dometic. They fit behind the door latch and then clip into the frame of the refrigerator. They are called AIRING POSITION CARDS Part # 3850781-01, I wasn't able to find them on-line.

You can contact Dometic Service Office at 574-294-2511 or Service Center Assistance at 800-544-4881

Wildwood- the "simple flat door clips" that you are looking for are called "airing position cards," Dometic part no: 3850781-01. Here is some information that may assist you in getting a couple of these: Dometic Service Center Assistance, Elkhart, IN (1-800-544-4881) or their USA Service Office in Elkhart (574-294-2511). Also try Dometic's website: When ordering the "airing position cards" you'll also need the model number and serial number of your unit handy. Hope this information is helpful.

Thanks all

A couple updates

I called dometic and they said dont supply the flat piece anymore so i am not sure where to ask next

i also run stove burners to purge out air and have tried relighting several time without success, still says check when on propane. this is in a 2000 trailer. we have been using on electric though.

thanks for you input
