  1. My domestic fridge just stopped cooling, no signs of leakage. Everything testing good on the troubleshooting guides. The opinion of the local RV guy was that I had a failed cooling unit. That left me with two options: buy a new unit or replace the cooling unit. After talking to Jason at Oliver and him telling me that to remove the fridge from the trailer you need to remove the door, I thought I would try to replace the cooling unit myself. I found some places that would ship a unit for $500 to $1000 and I do the install. I watched many videos and researched the work. In this research I found several people talking about burping this kind of unit, it entails flipping the unit on its side, top and allowing the ammonia mixture to reposition and displace any air pockets. Since I had to remove the fridge from its housing I thought I would try it...and it worked! We just took a 10 day trip and it worked fine. Some RV techs said it was a wive's tale. Glad I tried it. Hope this might help somebody.
  2. was your lens leaking into the attic?
  3. Just wanted to show everyone the upgrade from Anderson. Cost $100, they say that is their cost and free shipping. Looks pretty good. I will let you know how it works when I give it test.
  4. This will be our first rally...we have secured spot E-21. See you there!
  5. I just tried John's suggestion on hooking up my TV to my trailer. The battery read 13.1 after a full day of sun being parked in the drive, I hooked up the Tundra and it went up to 13.3 and no further after 20 min. ?? Any thoughts on that? I towed all day on my first outing with the fridge on DC and in the evening I was in the mid 12's (12.3 to 12.6) I was concerned if I should be concerned :?
