Travellers with selected RUA6 and RUA8 absorption fridges–sold in vans between July 2018-December 2020–must cease using the Auto and 12V battery settings and arrange a warranty repair says Dometic.
Dometic initiated the recall following concerns the 12V wiring loom may overheat and char risking a fire if placed near combustible material.
Affected models include the RUA 6408X 188L and RUA 8408X 224L absorption fridges with following serial number ranges below:
