Fridge-Fix for Dometic 8551
We have a 21 5.0 TA with the large Dometic 8551. We have been on the road with our trailer for approx 6 weeks. As everyone is aware, the performance of this fridge is borderline acceptable. No matter which mode we use, the lowest temp reached is 38F. In addition, when the door is opened, the temp will shoot up to +45F and takes a long time to come back down. I am using a laboratory rated thermometer to monitor the temps.
We received the Fridge-Fix on 7/28 and I installed it late on 7/29 (install was very easy). 24 hours later the temp in the fridge was 27F. I have to now reduce the temp setting on the fridge !!
