No, but I'll take one when I get home after work tonight and get it posted.

Donna D, censor me if you like, but after three months & 6.4K miles our 6.7 is working just fine... We are now in Missoula, Mt heading for Port Angles & I challenge Klem to meet us at the KOA there to see first hand our experience... Would hate to see fact to get in the way of fiction!!!

Or is this forum all about pontification & no substance

You All Have a Great Day!!!

Larry, it is nice to know that not everyone is having problems with the fridge. It gives me hope. But I am curious to know what sort of temperatures you have been camping in. It is currently 39 in Missoula, with an expected high of 75. Have you been any where where the temps have been about 90?

It does seem strange that the fridge saga does not seem to be consistant, what I am getting at is they all seem to perform a bit differently. There are those who have had satisfactory performace in really warm weather and there are those who have not in reasonably moderate temperatures. Just seems strange that they don't all behave the same.

Agreed. It does raise an interesting point though. Since it would appear that some fridges of the same model number have issues and others don't, the "fix" for each may not be the same. Dometic's failure rate for fridges has not been a historically good one either. Some of the units might just be bad from the factory.

How many of you all have actually taken your Escape in for warranty fridge service? I have, with only limited success, but I'm at least on record as trying to use their system. Other than Reace sharing our postings, it would be pretty easy for Dometic to deny the problem while all the DIYers are trying all sorts of things. We're camped in Maine in very pleasant temps and our 6.7 is barely keeping up. Another 19 here with the 6.7 is doing less well. Another, older Escape here with the 5 cu ft fridge has never had a problem. Ours has had a fan added on the backside under the warranty service, but it's not really hot enough outside to use it. The Fridge Fix fan doesn't seem to do much, might even make it worse. I'm just waiting to see what happens next. Might even try another warranty service attempt just to keep pestering Dometic.

Haha! Hey, if you find out it means I Am Drinking Rum let me know first because there's a lot of members that would love to pontificate with Larry! :
