My first Brisk Air went bad in slightly over a year. Now the one new one has stopped cooling. I'll check it again today, but it seems the Delta is less than 5 degrees. Inquiring minds wonder why Dometic using the finest Chinese labor $.50 and hour can hire, can't make a unit that will last a few years. Buying new will be a gamble; they are too expensive to take a chance on, when the warranty is out. I think I'll try to find an old Coleman off a 20 year old camper that still works perfectly.

Ditto on the bed being hard to make but otherwise like our unit a lot! DW has issues with the cabinets being too high for her, stepstool helps!

Part for recall

Hey Wolf,
Part needed for recall was a small plastic clamp that holds and supports the romex wire where it goes in to the back of the rv plug. Had to buy pack of 4 at HD.

Thanks TG. On the back of the plug (inside the access area) a clamp is built in to the plug that seems to hold the orange 2-10 AWG wire. I've thought about pulling out the weather proof plug and checking it out. I have not heard that my unit is being recalled for this issue.

FR came around at the Rally in Goshen and replaced a bunch of these. The connectors can cause some problems.

As a former owner I loved nearly everything but the bed setup...and I hated that so much I am a former owner. Between my head hitting the blinds, constantly feeling I would fall through the bathroom wall and the cramped feeling I just couldn't even sleep in it. I finally moved to the garage before moving on. I would like to return to the xlr family someday but could only consider one with better space around the bed...and that needs to wait for a bigger tow vehicle.

On my 2016 XLR the orange wire came out of the side of the trailer plug at the back which bent that wire 90 degrees. There is a 1/2 inch hole straight out of the back of the plug which allows the wire to go straight in and takes the bend out of it thus reducing the chance of a bad connection. The part I got from Home Depot fits over the wire and in to that 1/2 inch hole to support the wire and keep it from pulling out. I would send a picture if I could figure out how to attach it.

Are you able to use the paper clip/attach icon?

Steve, I don't have the window you are showing above when replying, but I do when I create a new post. I tried a new post and upload still fails.

WW,
From a PC (were I do most of my viewing/replying...) you need to use the Post Reply button and not the Quick Reply option.
