Has anyone done the installation of the Dometic recall baffle themselves? I have one under the couch that I guess the PO got but never had installed.

The "wall" that Driver mentions sounds like the baffle in the Dometic recall. Perhaps it was installed incorrectly. We have it—by the time ours was produced, the baffle was standard and it looks like a piece of galvanized steel bolted to the back in front of the heating units.

Our 2007 Dometic has the sheet metal guard installed around the burner but we still have trouble with blow out by passing trucks and wind gusts while travelling. I've heard of a baffle kit installed on the door backside but I think I'll try a cheap air filter first.

Over at the "Sprinter and B-vans" forum, this subject came up, and the recommendation was strongly against installing an air filter in place of a baffle. The filter can contribute to overheating because it restricts airflow.

i am surprised that fridges work while driving.

Even if the pilot stays lit. I am not 100% sure how they work, but if they need to be level for proper air ( heat ) flow.....the wind must wreak havoc. I usually put a frozen jug of water in the fridge to keep things cool.
