If you go to the Dometic web site you will find a certified repair facility who will install the parts for you. It is an easy fix. Turns out I did not need to drive to my dealer at all; the garage across the street is actually "certified" by Dometic to repair their fridge's. There were 3 more within 5 miles of my house. The dealer was 45 minutes away.

They also added a thermal circuit breaker to the stack to shut off the gas if there was an overheat in the burner stack.

You are correct Lou, been awhile, forgot the trip in the stack, but then look at the date on your photo, I think the recall was in 2006, his fridge is not one of the troubled ones?
