Feedback on switch set point?

Any feedback from Dometic on high switch turn on setting?

I'm still waiting, that said my fans did kick on when I switched to propane, so I need to verify that scenario again.

Got our new 8555 fridge installed at the local RV dealership. They charged me their flat rate fridge R&R amount of $345. That's a little more than I expected, but it's done, anyway. So now that we have this marvel of cooling science, I'm baffled by some of the plastic bits. The shelf spacing seems totally strange. And those sliding shelf locks don't look like they'll be around long. We got three shelves (for four slots) in the lower unit, and the spacing is really wasteful. I guess that's one way to prevent us from packing too much stuff in there! And what are those clear rectangular pieces and the angle pieces? I figured out the two that fit in the silly vegetable crisper, but I'm at a loss to see where the other pieces go. I guess all the plastic weirdness is worth it worth it if the thing actually works as we hope. I certainly appreciate Reace negotiating this exchange for us, and also that Dometic finally stepped up to the issue.

There are some shelf "locks" for lack of a better word that snap into the square holes to keep items from sliding off. The two long pieces go into the crisper and the "eyebrow" goes on bottom door shelf. Highly recommend the fridge guard, small size fits perfectly and will keep everything inside. Also there are plastic buttons on the shelf tabs that you can remove and then remove the shelf, but I find that they only fit where they come from factory.

Hope they didn't then pocket the one-hour labour that Dometic was covering ( according to my understanding and memory ).

That normally covers just the removal, if they add any extra insulation on the reinstall, as well as changing the flue size due to the newer model, there you will incur extra $$

Understand Jim, but what happened to the $$$ for one-hour labour from Dometic? Did they pocket that on top of the $345 flat rate? Or did they deduct it?

No, it took them 4 hours to remove and reinstall, one paid by Dometic and 3 paid by myself, but my bill was closer to $300. Mine was hourly, not flat rate.

It sounds like I should contact the Dometic guy to see if this should have been handled differently.

Jim, thanks for your comments on some of the plastics pieces. It's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle with no picture to go by.
