WOW! Thanks to everyone for all the great recommendations. I'll try "burping". As to the time it was "hot wired", I left it overnight and there was no appreciable change; however, it did gurgle and shows pressure levels on the gauge. Looks like I'm probably headed toward rebuilding the fridge. SIGH. Oh well, it's cheaper than a new one! Again, thanks to all for the advice and info.

I hot wired it overnight, but I also determined that the RV wasn't level side-to-side, so that may have compounded my problems.

Perry,
I was told by an AS repairman that the bubble needs to be at least halfway inside the center marks to be acceptable.

Half a bubble is pretty far off level.

Welcome to my world, I've been half a bubble off my whole life.

Hi All, I have a question for anyone who might know.
We have a Dometic RM3804. Removed it to replace the cooling unit. When ordering parts, it was recommended to replace the heating element at the same time. Well, after removal, we realized that the heating element was not shipped.
We are leaving on Thursday and I know the heating unit won't be here in time.

Can the heating element be replaced without removing the fridge?

Thank you in advance.

p.s. Avoid doing business with World Class RV refridgeration in Arkansas, they have horrible service. We were immediately charged for our parts and waited over 6 weeks before they were ever shipped. Then parts, instructions, invoice are missing. Greg at World Class is very uninterested in helping.

Access is dependent on your specific model and cabinetry, however, in almost all cases, you will have to pull the refrigerator out at least partially to have enough space to swap the element. The process is not too hard, takes little time, and can be done once on the road if you have to. It is a whole lot easier to pull out far enough if you empty it first ;-)
