There are actually 3 positions on the door lock, one for storage, one for non travel and one for travel. All are discussed in the manual.

Sorry, just assumed everyone could see the signature line. Funny? I'm seeing it on my iPhone and am posting with it as well. Here is a direct link to the awning page

Our 16' Scamp has a Dometic mid sized unit that is about 11 years old. It works well in any condition we have camped in. It is bone stock with no fans or baffles. The temp dial is typically set on 3 or 3 1/4 depending on whether it is running on propane or 120vac. If turned up too high it literally turns the whole box into a freezer! We ruined a lot of produce while learning. I hope this one lasts us for a while longer, as it sounds like the newer units have some issues.
We travel with the propane lit which helps with the constant temperature, but I do feel it would be safer to use dry ice instead while under way. Availability for dry ice may be an issue though.

techfan, you posted the pictures with my quote in post 102. when you posted it again with my quote in post 112 I assumed you were sending something new. I guess you forgot you sent it earlier.

Actually, I posted entry #102 giving you a link to techfan's original post of the awnings months ago. The picture was of my awning made based on techfan's original post. We were just cross posting I guess!!

you might want to try rotating the plastic blocks of " blue ice" from the freezer into the refer as needed. This seems to be a better option than Holes from freezer to refer, as I read a while back.

Hi: craiginpetaluma... That's the extra boost system we use. Does take up a little freezer/fridge space though. We also travel with the propane lit... with out incident.
One observation since being home. We left the fridge running on 120V plugged in and there's never any overnight dew on the fridge area of the exterior trailer wall. I don't know what's in there.
I'm usually quite baffled and don't have that many big fans!!! Alf

Trailer: 2014 21ft Escape
Posts: 114
Just got back from a 3 day lake trip. We have a 21ft. we picked up in March. Had no problems on way home from Canada, but it was a cool time of year. This was our first hot Texas weather test. We do have the texas fan, but have never "heard it", we assume it is working. Plugged in at storage overnight and had 3 in freezer and 36 in fridge. Used a remote wireless to gauge. Temps going on battery to destination went up to 9 freezer, 48 fridge! It was actually a cloudy week , but temps in the 90's. average was 3 freezer,36 fridge. We have ordered the big fan thing Jim installed. Everything I put in fridge was cold to begin with. If the sun had been blazing I think we would have had a problem. I am more worried about contents in refrigerator than freezer.
