This is totally wrong. A 2011 should have the upgraded fridge with an improved stack that shields and protects the flame.
Dometic had a recall 3 years ago and fixed the problem he was referring to. The problem fridge's had an RM model number. All the fixed ones are DM model numbers.
Do NOT block your vents. Your fridge will not cool. Folks pay big bucks to BOOST air flow through those vents to improve hot weather cooling.
Typical that an inept dealer would blame the "design" for his inability to troubleshoot a system.
