Almost ten years ago, I had a new Dometic Americana 3-Way refrigerator installed in my Overlander. This refrigerator has been a marvel of reliability and dependability. I always travel with the LP off, so the 12-volt mode has seen plenty of use and it reliably maintains the same temperature as the LP mode. My installer did have to run a heavy supply line from the 12-volt distribution panel. Given my experience with the Overlander, I have no question about which refrigerator will be going into my Minuet when its original Dometic refrigerator fails -- it will be a Dometic Americana 3-Way unit.

Dometic Americana Refrigerators

I have been very fortunate with the ranges in my coaches. The original ranges in the Overlander and Minuet continue to perform flawlessly so I haven't had to approach the question of range replacement.

Good luck with your projects!

Kevin
