Looks Like Dometic Still has Problems!

Several years ago, Dometic, the company that manufactures absorption refrigerators for RV’s, had to recall some of it’s products as a result of a leak in the coolant circuit that could result in a fire.  Since that recall, Dometic  has had to expand that recall to an additional 745,574 refrigerators (see NHTSA campaign # 08E032000). According to NHTSA, the problem is still in the boiler tube which can crack. As a result, the coolant can leak and ignite. Apparently, fires are still occurring. Presently investigating fire in horse trailer equipped with a Dometic absorption refrigerator.
