Hello. I got a used RV two years ago that fits this description. Could you tell me about the fridge though. When they say "two door", is that like a two-door side-by-side fridge at home, or are they talking about the freezer door and the fridge door being two doors. I'm guessing it's not mine with just one freezer and one fridge door right?

My fridge is not cooling well, so I thought this might be the reason. But I'm thinking not.

MAKE SURE there is water in the tank at all times.

Running the 120 volt heater element dry WILL burn it out in seconds.

I think the reference to 2 door is an over/under arrangement with 2 seperate doors.

Just get the model number from the inside of your fridge, and run it thought the numbers on the recall list.

Thanks. I'll do that. It's stored about an hour away, so I was hoping to avoid it til I go again.

Can you tell me too, is there some way to set the "coldness" of the fridge, like I do on a regular fridge?

Inside the refridgerator portion at the top you will see a metal unit with vertical fins (maybe 4 inches high) on a fin at one end (probably the right hand side) you will find a smallish sliding attachment. To adjust the temperature, slide this attachment up or down slightly. Don't remember right at this time which direction "up or down" is cooler, but experimentation will tell you that, if someone else doesn't chime in.

Dometic Recall...Is it fixed?

We recently bought a used Rockwood and the fridge is included in the recall. Without going into great detail and boring you, I'll just say that I have no way of knowing if the previous owner had it fixed.

Is there an obvious way by looking to know if the upgrade has been done? I'm in there anyway to replace the 120v heating element. Thought maybe some of you folks who've had it done could help.

Thanks, Joe

Joe, thanks for your post. If it wasn't for you, I might have missed the info about the recall. This unit has had two prior owners and it slipped through the cracks. Called the local RV center this morning and it wasn't worked on. Before the call I did look inside the outside refer cover and it didn't appear that any mickey mouse alteration were made. maybe someone can post what a post repair system looks like.

Just thought I'd try again, by now this is probably not a very hot topic. I assume most people have already had the upgrade done. Maybe mine is too, just don't know what to look for.

Just call Dometic per the recall notice.

"OWNERS MAY CONTACT DOMETIC AT 888-446-5157."

They can tell you over the phone if the work has been done and tell you exactly who in your area has the parts on hand so you can get it repaired asap. I have a guy coming out Monday to fix mine.
