Too many 39's here, I think he was referring to the difference between 62-outside temp and 23, the refer temperature. As far as that differential, I'm not too surprised as I'm sure the manufacturers built in a max low for the refer, so if the outside was 50, it would probably still remain at 23. In addition if the outside was 40 degrees, I do not think the refer will drop to 1 degree, it should remain at 28 or higher.

Well just out of curiosity I contacted RV Cooling Units to see if there was an Amish Cooling Unit (they are much more efficient then the stock ones) made to replace the one in the Dometic RM8555 and this is the response I got.



Thanks for the note and question about the model 8555. Sorry we do not have are placement for that model, since it was more for oversea use where AC voltage is 230vac. You are the first customer that has asked about that model.
Thanks,
David Force

Not surprised. The RM8xxx series is sold in europe (230V) but also in North America (120V). Camping World calls them 'Dometic Euro' but Dometic makes no such distinction.

Thank you VERY MUCH for the welcome. I have been reading this thread, and it just seems like there is a great group of people here. I think that is our favorite part of the RV world: The People!

I wanted to let everyone know that we are running another 25 units for the Escape forum group. We anticipate having them done by the end of the week. We would like to update our instructions. If anyone is willing to share some pics of their install, and possibly the wire they chose for the power source, that would be fantastic.

We appreciate the feedback on the units so much. for those who have installed the unit, please keep sharing your experience with the group.

Question: Would the group prefer a fan unit with no blue LED's?

--Mike

The white wire is the power wire in our units, not the brown wire.

As far as the response from the Amish, I'm not surprised as they specialize in rebuilt older units and the #8555 is too new to have many or any rebuilt.
