Did they give a part number for the new trim piece ? If so, can you post it just in case they don't send it any time soon, I can call and ask about it with the part number.

Thanks,

Bob

My dealer Giant Recreation World in Ormond Beach FL found that there was a recall on the AC units on our 2018 FR3 30DS came with and replaced ours.....no more leaks.

Install instructions?

Thanks for all the info in this thread. I got in contact with Dometic this week. The new cover arrived yesterday and the trim piece is to arrive today. I did not see any instructions. Is it pretty intuitive on how the metal plate is installed once I open it up? I hope to do this over the weekend. Thanks. I will report back my experiences.

Refer back to post #17 in this thread. Much better instructions than youíll get with the kit.

Thanks guys. I didn't go back and read the earlier posts. Post 17 is great. I did get the trim piece today and it had instructions as well. I hope to get this installed tomorrow. Thanks again for the responses.

Installed today

I got to install the cover and trim piece today. The directions on post #17 were spot on! Thank you! I am attaching the directions that came with the new pieces. I found them to be difficult to read. The pictures are very poorly done IMO.

The one thing that shocked me is how they only use aluminum tape to cover the "ducts" in the Styrofoam in the roof. This leaves very little separating the warm return air and the cold supply air. The new system is much better than the old one but wow they should have closed that off better.

Thanks again to all who have posted on this thread.

Dometic vs Atwood

Thank you for the info in this thread. I have a 2017 FR3 29DS built in Jun of 2016. It has Atwood AC's according to my paperwork that I got from the dealer. It has a 13500 AC only in the Bedroom and a 15000 BTU heat pump in the living area. I've read Atwood and Dometic had some sort of merger in 2017. My question is, can I expect to get customer service from Dometic as described in this thread? I got water running out of my fascia cover today for the first time. We have used the RV sparingly in the one year since we purchased it. Today was Saturday and I will try to contact them on Moday. Since the ceiling cover looks exactly the same as the one shown in the photos here I was wondering if anyone else in this thread had an Atwood AC.
Thank you
Ben

Yes, Dometic provides full support for the Atwood. Give them a call and describe the problem and ask for Service bulletin 3315930.010

Why get a dealer involved. Theyíll probably keep your unit for a couple of weeks to do a job that takes maybe 30 minutes. Order the parts from Dometic (theyíre free), look at post #17 in this thread and do it yourself.

Dometic vs Atwood

/Thanks again emm- dee and all. I called Dometic today and talked to customer service . The woman I talked to was very pleasant and was familiar with the problem and said she would send me two sets of new vents and trim kits possibly leaving today by UPS.

The OP hasn't responded back since September 4th 2018. Don't think they're coming back.

mine did the same thing, its a issue with the installation. they had to take mine off and cut the foam insulation so it would drain. the foam fell or was to tight. once they did that it cleared up.

later the dealer said the also ordered and installed a new updated piece for it but it looks just like the one that was on it
