Not being a smartaa$$, but I would think an appliance parts store would have what you are looking for. Try a clothes dryer thermo if nothing comes out to be what you are looking for. They came in all kinds of ranges for the different cycles and air locations.
You might also try a manually adjustable thermo for an aftermarket electric fan for a car.

The local RV dealer had to travel to our parked TT in the deep woods to install this recall. It took him about an hour to do it, and it cost me $40 or $50 for the travel charge. The fix seems like a jury-rigged effort by Dometic, and I fail to see how it does much, but if it lowers the risk of a fire in the middle of the night, it's worth the effort.

As for not being there, I NEVER let anyone work on my home or RV if I am not there - it's an open invitation to get sloppy work IMHO.

Anyway, if you can find someone to drive out there, it's worth the extra $$ for the peace of mind alone.

I just bought a 2003 Wildwood M-30FKSS today and 'stumbled' on the recall on a 'Lemon Law' web page. I have no idea if the repair has been made on my TT or how to determine 'proof positive' what it's status is. Any suggestions?

Our trailer was also used when purchased, but only for one year, and the recall had just come out at that time,,they do take alot of information when you call dometic, which includes the serial number, I would think that if yours was already fixed that it would be in there system...dont know that for sure, just assuming that is how it works, I personally had a very good experience in having ours repaired, called dometic told them it was on a permanent spot, couldnt be moved, they gave me listings of who was servicing that area, I called made the appt and they came out in a very short amount of time, fixed it, and charged me nothing...and we about 30 minuted out from the closest dealer..hope this helps out..

If you look on page #1 on this thread and check #3 post you will see what what the repairs look like. If yours do not look like this then it has not been done.

Go to this website: http://www2.dometicusa.com/recall.php, to determine if the refrigerator in your tt is on the recall list.

Yes, that is a good Idea. When the recall was first announced my model was not included until the list was revised and that was last year. Momma Tac thanks for posting the web site info that just rattled my brain. After 06 they may have made changes and the repaires made not be needed on the newer models.

Armed with all the info that the forum so kindly provided I went 'armed' to the dealership and checked my RV that I purchased today. I had the salesman open the frig vent and it was immediately apparent that the 'repair' was not made. The dealer is in the process of making the modification to the frig so that me and my spouse don't have an unpleasant awaking in the middle of the night! I don't think that this is really the solution. Ideally if the unit actually fails due to a defective boiler tube then the mfg should make it in legal terms 'whole' again. The fundamental problem reverts back to the boiler tube that has cracked on our RV's as well as high-end units as Airstream. I once had a similar problem on a recall from Ford motor company. They used defective bolts on the timing pulley and they actually fell out of the car. They sent out a recall that if you had 60,000 miles or less they would replace the bolts or if you had to have them replaced yourself they would reimburse you. Mine failed at 62,000 miles. Ford would not do anything for me. I ate a $400.00 bill! I contacted Ford at the highest levels and tried to make the point that the issue was plain and simple, regardless when the bolts failed the problem was the bolts not the miles. Oh well!
