Fridge Problem

Heres a dwg. from Forest River (Adaption of RV Custom battery control) showing two terminal blocks at bottom. Fuse #4 on right block supplies the Reefer doors lock coil. Its fed via blue wire to Dometic input TB at back of fridge. The box normal 12V supplies the opening voltage. Note the blue lead is only energized when the chassis ign. switch is on.

Hope this is helpful.

We bought ours in Aug 2011 brand new. We have the Dometic 4 door water on left door ice on the right (in the freezer). We have a 378. Today we got a recall on the truck itself. Does anyone know about the awning. The hydraulics are rusted already. Glad we bought it new. I hate to see this thing in 5 years. Sad.

Vince, thanks so much. Do you have the fridge ignition lock set up on yours? And does it work? Which fridge do you have? I just picked up my coach from my dealer for warranty work and they say that they called FR and they said that they (the factory) do not hook this option up on their RV's. Sounds hard to believe. do you know anything about that?? They are going to replace my fridge as they were unable to get the door dispensors to work and FR is replacing it...and if it is supposed to be working, I am going to get on them to hook it up when they install the new fridge....i think it is a great safety feature as we have already had a fridge door open and milk came flying out while we were traveling

Wow dejavu! My dealer also told me locking door not available on Gas chassis Amazing cause FR routed the wire and paid for the feature of locking!
Yes mine is now working and is quite handy. I have a 2012 387 with Dometic 4 door model 1350 wim which stands for Water and ice maker. The only difference is the water is on the door, the ice is by tray only. The problem with mine was the alt wire leading up the box to the latch was parted during installation (another dealer). Tell your dealer must have 14 volts on power terminal back of box with engine running. BTW this refrig is $3500 discount retail, great when it works!

My lock works and worked from day one. Dometic has a real quality control problem.
The dealer replaced the one that came from FR and the new one the freezer door still leaks and there going to fix it for me when we stop in at Elkhart.

Know what about the awning? Also, don't understand what you mean about the hydraulics being rusted. The recall on the chassis is no big thing. Getting mine fixed on the way home from south texas. We've lived in ours full time since Aug. 2010 and are mighty happy with it.
