Amish replacement cooling units

For anyone interested I just heard back from JC Refrigeration about the availability of an Amish Cooling Unit to replace the Dometic one in the RMD8555 fridge. As most of you know the Amish cooling units are far superior then units built by Dometic and Norcold

Here is what they sent me.


“We are getting more and more calls for these, I am thinking we will pursue making a replacement that will be much colder then what you have and that process takes approx. 3 months...........

So if you can wait and check back we should have it available : thanks JR”

That would certainly be great if need be - let us know anything further.

Doug that could be really good news for a lot of folks. I have heard nothing but good reviews of those Amish units.

I will, mine seems to work fairly well, it just take awhile in the warmer weather.

Have been thinking about trying a southern holiday which could possibly be a lot warmer, so that combined with being in the US I was thinking it might be worth looking into.


Cheers
Doug

I hope so Eric.
As a side note hopefully other people will look at this as a best option and contact them, I did mention to them I would bring this to our Forum.



Cheers

That would surely show them that there is a customer base all ready for them!

Definitely the more folks that contact them on this model fridge, the quicker they will be to offer a better solution. If this works that much better, what a great solution it would be for those having problems. Maybe Dometic should try to hire their engineering fellow.

Please don't make assumptions about what "most" might know. "Many" might have been a better word. Or "some". I'm sure there's some or many folks on this forum that were clueless when reading this post and had to click on the link. Me included. Never heard of this product before.

So how many people have to know before the word most can be used.
