Usually you can ask the mobile tech if they are an authorized Dometic service company and they will tell you if they are what their warranty/payment process is. If not, just call Dometic with your SN and problem and they will tell you who is close to you authorized to work on the unit.

My dealings with Dometic in the past have been easy and very helpful.

After the fact, who knows. You canít take your new car to anybody and then expect the new car company pay for the repairs.

Next question, how does a hood vent disappear? It was not laying on the floor in the RV? Or are you talking about the flapper vent on the outside of the unit?

Hey stuff is going to happen. Your unit is now over a year old now so it is out of warranty so just fix the stuff and start enjoying camping again....
It's the outside hood that covers the the outside vent..Yes the flapper vent cover.

I would not worry about the flapper vent cover on the outside. I have opened mine on all the RVs Iíve owned and never closed them again. Some people worry about bugs getting in, well they can get in in multiple places.

I hope you get your other issues resolved. It usually takes a year or two to get the kinks worked out, much like a big boat, but nor as expensove!
