I've searched and read and searched and read some more and I still have a few questions with which I hope someone can help. I have a 78 Argosy MOHO with an original Dometic Refer that based on the dials runs off of LP, 12V
and Elec. I have never been able to get the Elec to work and I assume the 12v
is the same story (although I can't tell how it would be wired for 12V
; it may have been an option that was not installed?). The LP works fine, but I notice some rust dust accumulating at the bottom of the flame box and I assume I need to clean the flue. Well, I can't figure out if there a way to clean the flue with removing the refer. Some say you can but give no details and others discuss removing the refer which goes well beyond my ability. I've tried to remove the refer, but I cannot figure out how it is attached and I just don't feel comfortable disconnecting the LP, elec., etc.. So my questions are:
- Can I clean the flue without removing the refer?
- If so, how is this best done?
- I have noticed an exhaust smell while the refer is running on LP. Is there an explanation for the smell and a way the I can get it to vent better?
The exhaust odor is dangerous and my main concern. I think that the flue is the root of my problems, but I'm at a total loss. I know I'm throwing a lot out there, but any help that is geared for the technically challenged would be great. Thanks!
