Does anyone know the Dometic set point for the dual fans on the dual door model. I have yet to have mine come on, yet it has been in the 90's the last couple of days. I can turn them on manually, but I have not seen them activated by the factory preset?

I think I'll install one of these in line with the switch http://smile.amazon.com/Bimetal-Temp...HVDB61GVG9J9F6 to operate the fans.

Hello, my 21 is currently at a certified Dometic service shop awaiting a replacement refrigerator.

Question: Will the replacement fridge fit through the door or must a window be removed to get it in?

It will just fit through the door.

Cheers

The windows aren't big enough. Casita and some others made one of their windows larger so this could be done, since their fridge is wider, and won't fit through the door. In the Escapes, the door is the only option.

I still can not get my fans to come on automatically, I measured and the location reads 115 degrees on the tube. They are on manual right now.

Since you can see your switch look at it and there should be some numbers on it that will tell you what temp it will cut in at and a -number that will be the differential where it cuts out. Then measure the temperature of the tube it is mounted on and see if its close.

My switch I installed, it is a toggle and it bypasses the thermostat on the lower tube, see my pictures here RMD 8555 Two Door Fridge - performance stats

Hi Jim

Just walked past my trailer and I heard the outside fridge fan running, I only turned the fridge on a little over an hour ago. Ran and grabbed my laser thermometer and checked the temperature at the switch and it was 102.5F.

Cheers
Doug
