Welcome Mike;
I probably speak for a percentage of future Escape owners. We would appreciate access to your new product as our trailers are built and delivered, but can't place an order until then. So, if you are inclined, please consider making a few spares over and above the current production run.

Thanks,
Alan

I believe Mike has provided a prototype to ETI for their evaluation, maybe a possible future option?

Our 4.3 fridge cooled ok at 72 degrees F without interior fans. When the ambient air temps are above 85 degrees for several days please post the interior fridge temps. We are having trouble with the cooling inside the frig at temps higher than 72.
Fans on the inside of the fridge does not address the heat exchange problem at the outside condenser.

Bob,
I realize that the higher exterior temperature will cause an issue, particularly while cooling on propane. I'm merely reporting an improvement on the interior temperature via a lower refer setting while on 120v. Until someone else can address the exterior exchange, this is all we have as owners.

FYI,
Somehow my Fridge Fix order fell through the cracks. I called Mike and he indicated that he was building another 10 or so that will be ready shipment next Tuesday.

Uggh! The one guy who needed it most! Sounds like your fridge doesn't wanna be fixed.

Vicki, Are you saying it works period or it works now better than it did?
