Hi John,

Nice PanHead!

I just removed the refrigerator from my '94 21Ft Sovereign due the same issues as you previously posted; ammonia smell. Your post was very informative!!!!

I attempted to follow-up on the nucold website but it doesn't come up. Do you know whether they have changed names (merged) or if they're still in business? If not, do you know of another reputable business that sells these cooling units?

Thank you again for a great post!

Randy

3604 Cooling Unit Replacement?

I have a '94 21Ft Sovereign and my refrigerator just recently went out or developed a strong ammonia odor. I've read several post one of which was very informative by JohnH. I'm currently looking for a reputable business that rebuilds these cooling units. However, the two most promising websites I located have a trail of complaints by consumers. In some instances, it's pretty pitiful what these people have experienced. I strongly suggest to anyone looking that you either "Yelp" a business, or look for a "Review" of the business via their websites (such as "Ripoff report") before you spend your money. I have until the summer before traveling again. However, I would like to have my unit up and successfully running again before then. If anyone has had recent success with replacing their cooling unit and you've found a business that has stood behind their product plus their customer service was above par, please let me know.

Thank you in advance and Happy New Years!
Randy

Hi Chris,
It's been awhile since I last corresponded on Air Forums. But thankfully, when I needed information about my refrigerator, John HD had provided a very informative layout for doing such. I chose to go with RVCoolingUnit via ebay. At the time, I worked directly with the representative, David Force.

Dave coached me through the pains of replacing my unit. That was awhile ago (2012). So, I would contact him directly to inquire about the unit you're looking for. I just did a search on ebay and found a listing (which typically, suggest that these units are rebuilt by the Amish community) for a DM2652RBX cooling unit. My unit was different. But I wanted to confirm that they were still in business before I referred you to them.

I received a 5yr warranty with my unit and it's still functioning very well. This was a great savings compared to a brand new unit.

David Force
901-337-9948

Best wishes towards finding a replacement.
Regards,
Randy

Randy..just an update. Currently, the 350LE is having the Dometic 3804 cooling unit replaced by a guy in Kerville Texas who sells ATCO replacement cooling units. He quoted me $485 plus freight for the Dometic cooling unit itself plus around $100 freight. Further discussion ended-up him agreeing to remove and install the cooling unit for a total of $800. Who could refuse that to avoid umpteen hours of frustrating knuckle grazing hours? Might cost a bit more it seems as he's had to remove the buffet seat back to clear the unit out of the RV! I'll post a final review but right now

Collected the newly refrigerated 350LE on the weekend. With new cooling unit and thermostat, the old Dometic RM3804 works like a charm on all three power sources and in the middle of the usual Texas summer heat!
As above, although the quote was $800, the actual cost escalated to $1045 . This was due to the additional labor of removing the rear buffet bench seat, the lounge chair nearest the door (all so as to be able to get the unit out for repair) and a replacement thermostat and sensor (hard to find apparently). Having seen what was required to get the unit out and back in, I'm more than happy with the expense and finished job. Name of guy is BJ and he's near Kerrville, Texas in Center Point. Phone number is (580)247-0073. Then stayed at the Kerrville-Schreiner Park operated by the city of Kerrville. Good value at $28 per night for a 50 amp full hook-up right on the Guadelupe river.
