We had our single door Dometic fridge swapped out this past Friday for the 2-door fridge by people at Escape. We dropped the trailer off at 8am Friday for the fridge replacement, fastening down of the solar panel, and replacement of the CO/Propane detector, and the work was completed when we came back at lunch. Escape didn't charge us for bolting down the solar panel or for the CO/Propane detector (detector was a pleasant surprise as we were outside the warranty period). They did charge us $225 (Cdn ) for removing and replacing the fridge.

As always the service provided by ETI was excellent.

If I lived closer, I'd have a parking spot with my name on it there.

Don't contact him directly. I have removed contact info from this site. It was not supposed to be public.
You should direct concerns through ETI.

Oh. Well, too late. I'll go ahead and contact ETI. I appreciate the final outcome; that is, a new fridge, but communications haven't been the greatest. Thanks.

Got mine today. Fan doesn't come on with propane. Hmmm?

Any thoughts on the best way to fish wires for a manual fan switch out of the back of refer? Best place to mount a switch?

So far temps look good. We are headed out next week and temps in High 80's. We will see how it goes with food.

You do not need to fish wires from inside the unit, there is a thermister on the lower tube with the fan wires, you merely override the thermister with a switch and mount it where ever, inside the outside compartment or I fished the wire to the under cabinet below the refer and installed the switch there. My instructions with pictures are either earlier in this thread or in the RMD performance thread. Yes, it is there starting with #70

Well I think I have the dubious record for replacement cost Bretz rv in Missoula,Mt charged 370.00. There were some smaller rv places but Bretz is a large dealer and service. They do alot of body work so I thought they would do a good job, for that much I hope so. Haven't picked it up yet, they are running it a few days first since I live 85 miles away. OUCH!!! It's finally cooling off here in Montana so it probaly won't get tested till next year. Not a happy camper today.

Yes, I have already installed a manual switch that is in the outside compartment. I will probably move into the cabinet as well.

Looking at your install picture reminded me of something. My refer has a little plastic cup for the condensate that straddles the tube adjacent to the fan thermostat. Did you get one of those?

Yes, but I rerouted the drain hose into the hole that drains outside, black hole in the bottom of the compartment, check yours.
