      Texas_Nomads (Michael&Joan) September 5 Only time we turn it off is when we are at home base. We turn it back on 2-3 days prior to packing for next trip and stays on until back to home base. Also depends on battery capacity and recharge time. As you know I have upgraded RV to 1200W solar and 60...  more

        Larry Dial July 24 All of the one that I have talked to have been the RV units, maybe the residential would have been a better choice. A working refridge would have saved me some stress.

        The Pangles July 24 Our last 5th wheel had an residential refer, and at first we loved it.  But, since we do a lot of dry camping, it’s a power hog!  And our new 344GK has the normal rv refer, and we enjoy not having to run an inverter all the time.

        Larry Dial August 22 most of the problems that I have seen has been with Norcold.

      Lee_R September 1 We have a 337 RLS and are having problems with our Dometic 12 CF refrigerator staying cold as well. I’m going to install a series of four fans above the evaporator fins in the refrigerator with the hopes that that will help

      Kathy and Keith September 3 We have a 2018 33rls and had to have heating element replaced. We occasionally have an increased temp in the fridge but that's dependant on outside temp and humidity. Still rather deal with this than a res fridge.

      Karl & Jen September 9 We have a 310GL with the Norcold.. our freezer was at 0 but the fridge was in the upper 40s. Anyone with this condition should check the plastic flapper between the doors to make sure it is closing all the way. Ours was not leaving a broken seal and ga...  more

    July 9Sitting in a campground where there is not a lot to do and decided to do a walk around of my 2970 RL. I strongly recommend that you go out right now and look at your rig. Get a S2 square drive. Almost every screw in the skirting and slides was either loos...  more

    May 17We have a 2018 337 and the wall is very close to the stovetop. Has anyone tried putting up a backsplash? Thinking stick-on tiles. Any suggestions??
    • Elinor
      We are Farmers May 17 I cant say how it would work in your rig, but we got some stick ins at home depot and are real happy.

        Elinor May 17 That's just what I was thinking to use - have you travelled with it? Any tips on installing??
      • Elinor
        We are Farmers May 22 Your rv may not be perfectly square. Few are. So use some creative thinking and cut your tile accordingly. Hold the panels in place before you peel the sticker. And it helps a lot to have a rubber roller to press the tiles with. The adhesive strengthen...  more

      Elinor May 24 Thanks very much - great tips!
    • Elinor
      OscarsMom2 July 15 I’ve been interested in doing this, but when I read the instructions, the tile would be closer to the stove burners than what is recommended.

      Wanda & Jim York July 18 We just take our sink covers and stand them on end, one in front of the other.  Easy to wash.  When traveling, I tuck them on each side of the couch between the arm and seat cushion.

    May 16I have been told that in order to use cable tv in our RL2970 that the over the air antenna must be turned off. Anyone know how to do that?

    • Bob & Jane Simica
      We are Farmers May 16 In my Imagine 2150RB , there is a little button in the tv area that turns the antenna booster on and off.
    • Bob & Jane Simica
      Lee_R May 16 There should be a face plate cover that your TV cable goes into near your TV. On that face plate cover, there’s a small button That turns a small red light on and off on the faceplate. you would push that button and have the light go out to use tv For ca...  more

      Bob & Jane Simica May 16 I found the button which was hiding from me. I turned it off but still says no cable power on? Checked connections and they seem tight. Coax is new. Scratching my head again. Any ideas?

        Lee_R May 16 Re-run a channel scan on the tv. That should fix the problem
