Just completed first outing in our 27RLWS. No shower leaks, axles not shifted and trailer not leaning, at least not yet. We are very happy campers right now! I do have a question about refrigerator fan. During the day the fan would run constantly probably due to very high outdoor temps. The fan is very loud, thank goodness it doesn't run at night when temps drop because it would be very annoying to anyone trying to sleep on the sofa bed. Has anyone else noticed this or maybe I have a bad fan? Other than that we are loving this trailer and floor plan.

The noisy fan is a normal comment made by those with the Dometic fridge that comes with this trailer. Only way to address it is to change the fan.

I turn on the fan in the bathroom and run it to pull out the humidity. Don't here the fan then. I turn up the tv and don't here it then either. I believe we all have that little issue. It's to the point now that it's soothing. Lol

Hehe ... while I am living with the noise of the fridge fan, I wouldn't go so far as to call it soothing, especially at night.

Haha. I need a little noise at night. Where we live all we here all day is cows, donkeys, coyotes, birds and bugs.

Thanks. I was afraid it was normal. This is the 4th RV we have had with a Dometic refer and have never heard such a racket before. Looking at the manual it appears the fan is optional. I would guess that since this is the first RV we have had that the refer is in a slide out the fan is there because it doesn't vent through the roof. Thank goodness it seems to not run at night!

I have my doubts but hopefully some day I'll find it soothing also.

Might ask the dealer to put steel shims in the space to stop the axle from slipping until they figure out how to fix the problem permanently. There are holes in the horizontal surfaces that they could bolt thru to hold them in place. I had the dealer drill thru the tubing and bolt both axles solid on ours so they couldn't twist down.

OC I got an email back from Dexter engineers the other day. They said a total replacement is the fix and did not agree to the dealers method of fixing the problem. Now I work on the dealer to replace them.

Looks pretty shoddy way of doing anything. To use it in the interim, you could cut hard wood wedges and drive them in just to get by for a short time. Is Dexter going to send you new axles?

If you could see your way clear, it would be advantageous to attend the rally and let them fix it with factory personnel.
