Dometic recall

Sorry if this is old news. While at SSSS this past weekend I picked up a free copy of Toyhauler Magazine. I saw a notice about a Dometic recall for some of their refrigerators. I went to the website, checked on the recall and found out that the unit in my WW is affected. I don't really know what the reason for the recall is, but I think it is fire risk. Now this is one more thing I have to do before the season starts up. Great....

Thanks guys. The notice I saw on the website said they have to install a SBH kit. What exactly did they do, and do you know what the risk is?

Thanks!

Chumley

I couldn't visible see what exactly they fixed, but I understand it's replacing some valve and tube that was prone to cracking and leaking and possibly cause a fire hazard from the pilot flame

the fix is to prevent a possibility of fire problem when cracking of boiler tubes occurs and releases pressurized coolant. replacing just the tubes if cracked won't prevent it from happening again so they are also adding a resistor inline to prevent overheat. they did the same thing with water heater years ago. if you look at your water heater wiring you will see an inline resistor that is the same type of thing they are doing on this recall. dometic is covering their asses for a poor design. they aren't doing anything to prevent the cracking reoccuring in the future. by the way norcold seems to have some of the same issues and is suppose to have a recall coming.

So is the manufacture date on the units? Where?

Thanks for the heads up Chumley!
