Before our second trip there was a brass latch bolt on that door!
Herk - what's a nice Italian couple like you guys doing buying Pasta Sauce in a jar?

On the up side...hopefully nothing else bad will happen. You got it out of the way! Its always a learning experience.

My dad riped the a/c right off the roof one time. Passed under one of those low hanging gas staion roof over-hangs.

So far (knock wood!) hubby and I haven't (yet) done anything to hurt us or our camper. But these is always the chance. Just dont get in a hurry.

Did not say it was "purchased" pasta sauce...

DW is German-Polish (a wonderful combination... BTW) and a great cook.

OK - that's your story and you're sticking to it.

We found out accidently that if we point the remote at the sloped ceiling in the direction of the radio, it works very good.

Sorry about your bad luck on your first trip! Hopefully things go a little better from here on out.

Sorry to hear of your troubles. As to your remote, there is a button labeled genesis or ZX800 or GT-3.0 beside the volume buttons on the remote. Try pushing that button, then any of the others on the remote.

It is impossible to reach there without removing the refrig. The factory paid our dealer to cut an access panel in the panel forward of the refrig allowing access to the thermostat. As far as the door opening in transit, we had the same problem and solved it by placing a bungee cord from the top door hinge to the frame of the panel that you open to get to the refrig.
Our thermostat is on the inside of the fridge by the freezer.
