318 BHS fridge colling unit dead after 3.5 years

I am absolutely sick that a manufacturer like dometic ( even norcold) can make such junk. The boiler sprung a leak and spewed out sodium chromate and leaked ammoninia, the trailer is at a permanent site and is very level, so the reason for cooling unit failures is the weight reduction mandated by the Rv industry after 1999. The cooling unit is 25 pounds compared to the new after market cooling unit that weighs in at 50 pounds. New crappy fridge comes in at $1500 delivered with 2 year warranty and new cooling unit come with lifetime warranty at $630 dollars delivered . I feel a fridge should last at least 10 plus years , but this is not the case anymore. Hope nobody else goes through this but that being said I doubt it.

You didn't mention the actual model, is it the DM2652 unit just out of curiosity?
