I'm reviving this post because I think I may have discovered a reason for the fire in my last trailer.
Earlier in the year my insurance company and subsequent investigational firm called off the investigation because "even if we found evidence of failure it wouldn't hold up in court because we can't prove that the site hasn't been tampered with."
Last week I came across a recall post on this site; Dometic Expands Recall
. Since everything was destroyed I didn't know my model or serial number.
Yesterday Dometic sent me a "service contract savings certificate" to extend my warranty for 1 to 3 years. Thankfully they included my model and serial number. I certainly don't need the extra warranty, but I was able to determine that my model and serial number were included in the recall.
The recall states, "A fatigue crack may develop in the boiler tube which may release a sufficient amount of pressurized coolant solution into an area where an ignition source (gas flame) is present. The release of coolant under certain conditions could ignite and result in a fire."
I've attached the only good photo I have of the refrigerator. It's at the bottom of the frame.
Hopefully this will help put a little closure on this unfortunate situation. And if you have a Dometic refrigerator I would be sure to take care of this recall as soon as possible.
