Can I lay the Airstream fridge on it's side to bring it home?
Here's the details:
I'm thinking of buying a used (about 10 years old) Dometic that came out of another Airstream. It needs to be horizontal for about two hours while I drive it home. It's raining this weekend, so it can be transported in the back of the pick up under the camper shell. The alternative is borrow son-in-law's pickup and transport it upright, but well wrapped and tied down.
OK y'all, yer turn.
It's OK to transport that reefer that way.
BUT, YOU MUST, when you get home, place it so that it's fairly level, and then leave it that way for a couple of days.
Then to make super sure, plug it into AC, and see if it functions correctly.
You should also overhual the burner, the orifice and chimney. The spiral diverter must be in place when using the city power as well.
