Re: Oh no. Dometic RM-2410 fridge flatlines...
the facts and only the facts: the fridge worked when it was bought; it worked in your garage; yet it won't work in your bus,what could the problem be? Your install. I HAD the same problem you now have and it was my vents. If you look at most trailers and RV's they have a lower vent and a vent in roof, VERY POSITIVE CONVECTION. I looked at your pics and you don't have near enough upper vent, mine is 16x16 and I bent the lovers a little more like level to get more convection and air movement. You can't turn a corner with the air and get it to move correctly like you have, it's got to be changed and the vent enlarged greatly. Also the vent needs to be raised for better performance, out the roof for best performance. 2) the propane heat is way more BTU'S over what is needed to get it to cool properly and the extra heat is getting trapped in the rear area and killing the cooling. It gets worse when the sun is heating the side of the bus. I actually installed an exhaust pipe to exhaust the propane heat and fumes to get them outside the fridge area and get rid of that heat and that helped a lot. In my ancient 3 way Dometic I run gas to get it going or during the night and electric during the day or when ever I can to make sure my stuff stays cold, especially in hot weather. The pipes don't corrode on the inside or these things wouldn't work for decades. Try running yours without the grill and I bet it works better. Sorry but you are going to have to completely redesign your fridge install but in the long run you will be very glad you did, they kick ass. Also it takes mine 24 hours to get to optimum temperatures. sportyrick
