Dometic M50

I have a Dometic M50 in my 61 Overlander. It appears to be original, right down to it's coppertone exterior. I've cleaned and re assembled the burner, and lit it tonight. Prettiest blue flame I ever saw. Keeping my fingers crossed on the cooling. I know it's not gonna be as effecient or convenient as the newer models, but money and nostalgia have me hoping it will do the job. Are there any replacement seals that will work with this unit? Anyone retro fit anything? thanks Mike

Hey Mike,

Convenient, no. Efficient, most likely yes.
My 1971 Dometic cools very very well now, after cleaning the burner assembly.

There is a company inCalifornia, Cool-fun, Inc. They offer many parts for older Dometic units.
A Google search for gas refrigeration might reveal other sources.
Good Luck.
