And the price tag... I heard Fourteen to eighteen hundred bucks. There's a deal breaker.

Not cool.

Don't forget to add the sales tax and the shipping. No way that's worth a tray of ice cubes to me.

Got a great ice cube maker in my house. Who doesn't bring along a cooler? Yes I removed the freezer compartment in my perfectly adequate 4.3 and will be adding that baffle, with reflectix, because a hope and a prayer cannot hurt. Maybe also a fan. Good enough for my tipping point.

...let's see now, take a dozen ice cubes, divided into $1650.00... hmm.

It's basically the same price as the Dometic RML8555 6.3 cu ft unit.

Take out the existing inadequate unit and pay for the new one - probably not. (If ETI offered to install it and help with the cost as a replacement I would be VERY interested.)

Get the new one ETI-installed in a new trailer for up to a moderate fee - absolutely. (Not currently possible, but Reace does pay attention to us.)

I agree. Also, the helium technology is a nice advancement, but there's not a lot of difference in the performance of the Atwood and a Tropical climate class Dometic. Its still absorption. What is needed are fridges with the appropriate performance for the climate they will be used in. Hot summers in North America are not compatible with a 'sub-normal' climate fridge.

Can ETI obtain a Tropical class Dometic?

Rossue, why not call and ask ETI. Then we'll all know.
