Anyone Have Experience with the Dometic Compressor Refrigerators?
I am hoping someone can tell me about their experience with converting to a Dometic refrigerator with compressor, the 8 cu ft DMC2841RB or the 6 cu ft DMC2841RB. These are described as operating on 110 volt AC or 12 volt DC, switching automatically as needed. This is a lot different than the 'household' refrigerators I have read about and described in this forum, since these Dometics are designed to replace an RV refrigerator with little or no space modification, and no special electrical needs beyond what was already available for the old 2-way or 3-way RV refrigerator that it is replacing. How did it fit? How well does it work? Is it powerful like you would expect a compressor refrigerator to be, not 'weak' like an absorption refrigerator? Does the cold air circulate well inside? Does it operate on a thermostat like your home refrig? Am I correct in my understanding of how they operate? I have read numerous accounts in which users have hunted and found a small apartment sized refrigerator that they other can fit or make modifications to fit, researched and found a suitable power converter, and vented and anchored the appliance and so on. I am not looking for more info on reverse engineering household units unless they fit perfectly, work perfectly, without modification, and don't forget the converter model number (but thanks anyway).
