Long term, should my RMD8555 ever go bad, I'll either have the cooling unit rebuilt (lots of companies do that) or I'll go with a compressor based fridge like a Novakool, by adding more solar and battery capacity, as Steve (hotfishtacos) has done.

Also more good idea's if ever needing to address fixing or changing out your refrigerator. The list is pretty long on solutions . Pat

Your 2015 is not working? Ours works including in Texas and Oklahoma heat. The claims about past refrigerators not working mostly apply to other earlier models although a couple have had problems recently. Ours and many others have been great.
