Here’s a question I posed in the other thread: For those of you who have replaced control/lignition boards for your Globetrotter fridges and water heaters, could you provide some guidance on which Dinosaur part #s I need?

Are you thinking of replacing the "factory" boards preemptively?

Yes, and keeping the factory boards as spares.

I generally don’t sweat this kind of thing—if we were just doing weekend or even weeklong trips I’d be fine just replacing a board if/when it fails. But we are going on an extended trip next summer and I don’t want either of these appliances to go down. So this is just a peace of mind move.

A pricier preemptive fix, no doubt, but no different in spirit than carrying spare fuses. Almost everything else I consider critical can easily be procured while traveling.

nryn Thanks for the lock info. I pick my new gt in the next week or so will try the rev-a-locks.

I will have these installed and my lift kit by the time you pick up yours.

Quick update on the board replacements--I provided Dinosaur Electronics with model numbers. Apparently Dinosaur doesn't sell directly; you can get their parts on Amazon and through service centers.

The Dinosaur part number for a 2019 Globetrotter 27 water heater board replacement is UIB64.

According to the (very friendly) man I spoke with, they do not have a replacement board for the fridge. The fridge in my unit is a Dometic Model RMD 8555 and has a product number of 00921132319. If anyone has replaced the board in their fridge, I'd be happy to know whether there is a non-OEM, fully compatible board out there that I can procure as a backup.
