RE: Dometic fridge WITHOUT thermostat

part number is on the tag, Googled it and found this: link to part I can see the part number on the tag in the picture. I am just telling you don't assume that will fit your fridge without verifying fitment.

RE: Dometic fridge WITHOUT thermostat

The Auto Temp Control DOES have a thermostat and thermistor....just doesn't have Temp Setting Adjustments The Thermistor (Temp sensor) attached to FIN can be moved to adjust overall fridge temps Move thermistor UP for colder Move thermistor DOWN for less cold In your 'friends' case....DOWN https://www.motorhome.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/HO_0118.jpg height=400 width=400 In AUTO the fridge controls will select AC Power (Priority) If AC Power becomes unavailable the fridge swaps to GAS It will swap back to AC when AC Power is restored If you select GAS Manually the fridge will only run on GAS ...no swapping back to AC Power CHECK Light comes ON when GAS Fails to light off and prove a flame is present. https://i.imgur.com/x2DU69bl.jpg height=350 width=450 Several Dometic Models use the Auto Temp Control This Manual covers some of them OK Thanks, I didn't know about the thermistor on the fin, will see if he does. I do know how the "auto", gas, AC thing works though, but what I'm saying is none of the indicators light up like it your pic, that I've never seen before. (... and this is regarding my 'friends' trailer BTW, mine has a Norcold with a thermostat and working indicator lights) You can get one of these eyebrow boards that has the adjustable temperature. It is a direct replacement. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/UvEAAOSwD0lUlDhJ/s-l300.jpg Thanks, I think I can barely make out that part number. That is just a picture I found of the eyebrow. I don't know what part number you would need for your model of fridge.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

Must be there are only 3 RVers that own a 6.6 gas engine, based on the responses. Must be many that go for the Duramax. That is the result of dealers only ordering diesels to put on the lot. It is almost impossible to find a gas powered HD pickup sitting on a lot. Unless you want a white work truck.

RE: GM 6.6 gas

I have over 7000 miles on my 2020 Silverado 3500 6.6 GAS. It is definitely an improvement over my 2016 Silverado 3500 6.0 GAS. It gets a little better fuel mileage and I definitely notice the increased torque on the hills hauling all the camping stuff. Six speeds is plenty for me moving 19000 pounds of stuff. Three speeds used to work for me also in the past. Imagine that!

RE: Atwood water heater won't stay on.

The obvious question is: "Is the water heater full of water?"

RE: Dometic fridge woes.

What did I already suggest on the previous page? Put in a new orifice!

RE: Dometic fridge woes.

I would put in a new orifice. Cleaning it doesn't mean it is as good as new. Like carburetor jets, sometimes you can't get them clean.

RE: furnace fan

The Hi limit switch on my Atwood furnace is normally CLOSED, opens when overtemp condition. From the Atwood service manual; The limit switch is an in line safety device which protects the furnace from any over heating conditions. The contacts in the limit switch open at a given temperature setting, shutting off power to the valve Once the burner shuts off, the fan continues to run to cool the chamber down. Once the Limit closes, the fan will shut off. This can happen from normal operation when the burner chamber gets too hot, but the wall tstat has been satisfied. The wall tstat if still calling for heat, the Limit will open if the chamber gets too hot and will then close again once the chamber is cooled down and the burner will then come back on. If you have reached the tstat setting , the odds are the Limit is now OPEN from the chamber heat and will run the fan until the chamber cools down enough to close the limit switch. Doug Again, we don't even know the make and model of the furnace in question. BUT: The Atwood Service Manual description of high temp limit switch function is correct for any Atwood or Suburban furnace made in the last 20 or 30 years. The high temp limit switch has NOTHING to do with the fan operation in these furnaces. That is controlled by the time delay relay on earlier furnaces or a relay on the circuit board on newer furnaces. Some really old furnaces had a bi metal switch that allowed the fan to run long enough to cool down the furnace.
