GAP Posted October 23, 2022 Share Posted October 23, 2022 My 2020 E2 came with a Norcold 3 way fridge. It's always seemed a bit prone to minor level related problems and I've had to do a couple of "hard resets". Just before my most recent trip, the unit shut down after a few hours running on LP and would not start again in any of the settings (LP. DC, AC) even though the trailer was carefully leveled. I looked up the code and the manual instructed to contact a repair facility. After trying another reset, I called a couple of local shops and they were both convinced that the board was fried. $250 to buy a replacement - not sure if I can instal on my own. Is out of warrantee. Two seemingly tangental questions: 1) There has been extensive discussion on this board about other types of refrigerators that are less finicky and, if I remember right, more efficient. Can any of you that have shared the replacement process and outcome, point me in the direction of that posting? $250 (plus instal?) seems steep on a $1,100 unit which was persnickety from the get gto. 2) The board on my Maxair Fan has now fried twice. First time they sent and I installed a replacement board and, this time, sent an entire new unit which I have yet to switch out. Maxair suggested that the problem was that their boards were susceptible to damage caused by using lithium batteries and claimed that their new units have brains built to deal with lithiums. As these batteries were so new to Oliver when I bought my trailer, is it conceivable that the batteries could be the source of the fried board issues and, if so, is there a setting on the Xantrex that would address the likely source of the problem? I'd call Xantrex directly to discuss but have found that blame is always shifted laterally. 2021 Elite 2, Twin Bed, Lithium & Solar, 3000W Inverter 2022 Ford F150, 3.5L V6 EcoBoost, 4x4 Supercab, Trailer Tow Package Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
