The coils on the top are totally different than the lower ones, perhaps it is the lower ones that need to be kept cool while the upper ones retain the heat, thereby creating the temperature differential that causes the liquid to flow?? If the bottom and top were same temperature then the liquid would not cool.

Yes, a temperature differential is required, but the hot side is in the tube on the right side (with the electric heaters and the propane burner), not in the visible tubing.

The finned part on the top is where the heat is rejected to the air; the big loops of tubing at the bottom are not shaped that way to be cooled by the air, they're just long to give the fluids time to interact while they flow.

Mine just had an on/off, but it worked, supposedly, in conjunction with the thermostat.

I should have asked, what is the climate rating of the RMD 8555 ?

Jim,

This is confusing - I believe this is for the RMD 8501. Here is a post on the Dometic website regarding the RMD 8555 and it's rating.
RMD8555 2-Door Refrigerator - Dometic Corp
Looks like Dometic just copied and pasted the 8501 info.
