Our 2-door was installed when we picked up our 21 in November.
On this trip we have been traveling for 6 weeks and finally hit hot weather a few days ago in Montana--97F (36C). Even when traveling at highway speeds at this temp, the fridge held steady at 36F (2C) in the fridge and 6F (-14C) in the freezer. This was on five bars on propane.
A few times we have had to reduce bars to four, when ambient temp is moderate. This afternoon with ambient at 65F (18C) the fridge was at 32F (0C) and freezer at -9F (-23C), so we lowered it.
We have found 120volt and propane to perform similarly and 12 volt able to hold a temp when we start out in the mornings, but we switch to propane if needed or if we're about to camp without connections and need to let the solar build the batteries back to 100%.
We did carefully measure every interior dimension with Tom and Arlene's single door, and nearly all dimensions are slightly smaller in the 2-door, verifying Jen's impression.

I repaired the hinge pin in the freezer door that had earlier been reported. An easy fix if anyone else has that issue.

I am re-posting this in response to Jim (CPAharley)'s question about settings and results on the RMD 2 door.

I am interested in your hinge repair. My freezer hinge moves laterally. Thanks

The upper hinge pin came loose, causing the freezer door to fall into my wife's hands.
The pin is about .75 inches long, and appears to have pushed into the horizontally positioned hinge bracket from below. The pin itself is splined for about .25 inch, and the remainder is smooth and fits into the upper left corner of the freezer.
I pushed the pin into the bracket from above and the splines would not allow it to fall through, and it now is permanently located, with the door having been safe and sound for over 8000 miles.

Jim, I just returned from ETI with our new fridge and our T/C # is 03EN2807 B70C 6D10 T150. Looks like it matches Bill and Earline's numbers. Is the temp setting B70C, or 158 deg F, or does the T150 mean that it comes on at 150 degrees F? Either way, it's too high. I've been running some tests since my return and it's been between 90 and 95 degrees. I haven't noticed the fans running, but then I haven't been listening for them, and I'm only in the trailer to write down temps and for modifications.
Keep up the quest;
Tom

I have question for everyone that has successfully exchanged RML 8555 Dometic refrigerator with the new RDM 8555 refrigerator . How did you finally get in contact with Mark Wolschlager? Both myself and local Dometic Service rep have been unable to contact him by the email. it has been weeks of trying to contact him by email for my local service rep.
Thanks
Mark

Yes, the 70C corresponds to the 150 degree, your numbers are very close to mine. I'd be surprised that your fans will activate, on at 150 and off at 158. I checked the tube temperature along the bottom where the thermostat is located anywhere from 90 to 115, hotter as you approach the burner.

Just keep trying, he os out of town this week but did respond once he returned. I know it is frustrating. But once he approves it was there within a week.
