  1. Hi All Can anyone advise for a fridge to work in the caravan do you need to be level Thank you
  2. We run off a generator, our kitchen light works but no other will come on and seems my fridge I won't ignite???
  3. Dear All, not sure if the following will help anyone but we hope so. The story so far. We own a 2014 Lunar Clubamn SR, not that the Van has ought to do with the problem we have been experiencing. It did come with a Dometic TALL slim fridge and for want of a better word supposed freezer, the freezer does freeze but I’m guessing you know what I’m alluding too. In around October last year - 2019 our fridge on the odd occasion would alarm, beeping madly for twenty seconds or so then stopping. At first I thought (as you would ) that the door was open, so we would open and close it and the alar
  4. We have a unicorn 3 with the large fridge the problem that I am trying to solve is when on gas the fridge goes out. Must be from wind but it can happen with or without the awning and when it does not seem windy. Any suggestions as to a cure?
  5. Can anyone tell me if i am able to get my fridge running? It is showing error 9, and will not ignite. I have plenty of gas. I have removed the exterior vent cover. I have switched it off and on again. The gas seems to be coming through but not igniting. Thanks folks
  6. We have a Dometic 8551 fridge fitted to our 2015 Lunar Clubman. This has worked fine so far including 5 weeks in France. (Fan assisted). Only annoying problem is that the 'door open' alarm often sounds even though you know it is shut, a small press on the top of the door will shut it up. We are now on a site in Suffolk, it might be that there is higher humidity but it does not feel particularly so. For the past few days there has been a wet 50mm circle on the outside of the door, so wet it drips down. It would appear that this is on the outside immediately opposite the catch. S
  7. hi all I am after some shelves for a thetford fridge does anyone know os a c/van breaker near to chester many thanks george
  8. My problem is I can't run the fridge when towing. I hook up to my car and start the engine, the 12v fridge light then starts flashing. Further investigation now reveals a clicking noise coming from under the front nearside seat where all the electrics are. It seems as if the fridge is causing a relay to drop out and then as soon as this happens it re-connects and then drops out again. I've also found out that if I switch a 12 volt light on in the van that this goes on and off with the cutting out. Any ideas please or can someone provide a wiring diagram for my Bailey
  9. Hi all! I have in my motorhome, converted from van. Thetford N3150 Caravan Motorhome Fridge Freezer, it is 3 way freezer. The issue is that after some time (like day or two) stopps cooling. .. And the temperature can get to 10 degrees while freezer still remains frozen but not as much. .. This is happening when outside is 5 degrees. .. Does anyone have any idea what can be wrong?
  10. Hi all, We are currently in France, staying in our Bailey Valencia 2013. The caravan has been sited here for nearly a year. We’ve been here for 6 weeks this trip, without many issues. .....except bloody mice! However, I noticed a puddle on the floor yesterday. First thought was hubby has overdone the pot washing! Got up this morning, kitchen floor soaked! My Dometic fridge has just stopped working! Won’t work on electric, battery, nor gas. I have checked the fuse, checked the plug socket under the cooker. No idea what to do next, except maybe buy a fridge to
  11. Hi I’m looking for some advise I have come to use my caravan fridge and the thing does nothing! It’s seems stuck on gas mode but will not change to any other mode? Even in gas mode it does not ignite or turn on or off. The only way to get the thing to turn off is by removing the fridge ignition fuse. ... anybody got any ideas.
  12. We're over in Brittany for a few weeks, and the Thetford fridge in our Hobby caravan has stopped working. Electrical supply seems OK (interior light is on), and gas ignites OK, but no cooling. Can anyone suggest a possible cause/solution? Thanks
  13. Hello We are going to Spain for the first time with our caravan. I'm not sure what to do about the fridge on the ferry as it takes more than 24 hours?? Any advice or tips would be much appreciated, what do other people with more experience do?? Many Thanks.


    Thetford fridge n97 now only works on 1 bar setting on allother settings is constantly ON Ps just had email from morrisons head office YOU CAN FILL SAFEFILL BOTTLE
  15. I have a problem that I can't get to the bottom of - Dometic fridge won't work on 12v setting when connected to our Discovery 2. I have a 2004 Ace Award Northstar. My previous tow car was an Audi, with factory fitted towbar. Connected the the Audi, the fridge worked fine - the fridge has a an LED that illuminates when switched to 12v and a working vehicle feed applied, irrespective of engine speed. This operates independently of thermostat an is a tell tale for power applied. Strangely, the habitation switch on the ECM2004 had to be in the "Van" position to make the fridge run on 12V,
  16. Hi, Just joined reducing myself. Been caravaning for 15 years with a variety of vans. Currently towing a Bailey Unicorn Valencia (2015) with my Hyundai Santa Fe (2016). Disastrous few days caravaning next Minehead this week. Fridge packed in (confirmed cooling unit failure) and seriously bent awning pole and damage to awning as the result of storms today in Bristol Channel. Is fridge failure and awning damage covered by caravan insurance? Left policey docs at home!
  17. Hi all, I've got a fridge problem I can't solve, can anybody help? We have a Dometic fridge in the Compass Corona, the same model that most small/medium size vans seem to have. Works fine on EHU and gas, but when connected to the car (with engine running) the red light flashes about once a second and a relay clicks somewhere inside the fuse box (I think) in time with the flashing fridge switch. I checked pin 10 on the vehicle and there is a health 13-14 volts when engine is running. I checked the 15a fuse on the caravan fuse box and it goes between 0v and about 9. 5v
  18. Hi, I'm in the process of getting the caravan ship shape for summer and thought I would give the fridge a once over. It's an old Electrolux RM212 & runs fine on hook up, but I have never been able to get it going on gas. I followed a tutorial to clean out the jet / burner / flue and reinstalled the fridge, gave it a go and hey presto - it worked! Whilst turning it off and packing up my tools, I could smell a faint whiff of gas so I pulled the fridge back out of its hole, got a spray bottle of soapy water, found the leak and got it sorted - all good, apart from the
  19. Hello, I'm new to all this caravan thing after being in a self build motorhome for years, Last year we bought a 2009 VIP Hobby caravan and everything worked fine except for the flush n the loo (weve never had that before so just assumed we were doing something wrong) At the last site we were on the neighbours kept tripping the electric at the box, we kept resetting at the controller and fine except the last time the light on the fridge and oven fan stopped working. weve since moved and now our booster for the arial is also not working although we are not sure if this happened at th
  20. When towing do you have the master switch in the van "off" or "on" to ensure that the refrigerator functions on 12v whilst travelling? Thanks in anticipation, Steve
  21. My 2013 model Swift Alpine4 has a dodgy 3 way Thetford fridge when used on 12v. In otherwords at the end of a long days drive the fridge temperature has risen to 18 degs celcius (up from 2 degs at start) and the vans battery is down to 12. 4v (down from 13. 5 at start). When I remove the grill on the outside of the caravan the pipe at the back of the fridge is hot to touch so 12v is ON but clearly not ON enough. There's an electrical connector at the back of the fridge and a voltmeter tells me I have 13. 6v coming in from the battery side of things but it drops to 11. 5v on the out side lea
  22. Hi Everyone, I have trolled through most of the fridge-related posts on this site for the past couple of weeks. I have an Electrolux 3-way fridge that will not cool. Initially it wouldn't light at all so I cleaned the burner unit and jet out with air so that now it lights first time, every time. Still wouldn't cool. I then noticed that the flame wasn't increasing or decreasing using the dial. I then cleaned out the pipe going to the burner unit, also with air, so that now I have a very responsive, lovely blue flame. Still won't cool. It works fine on mains and freezes
  23. Our new to us 5 series is booked into a tow bar specialist this week to wire up the pins for the fridge electrics. This was an issue I was aware of before buying the car, so not a disaster. I have just spoken to the towbar people and they tell me that the parts will either cost approx £15 or £120, depending on the socket used. Apparently, some BMW 13 pin sockets can have individual pins added to them (they are the same ones used by Audi / VAG) but on other types it's a whole new BMW socket. They won't know until they see it. Has anyone else experienced this when retro - wirin
  24. Is anyone out there having issues with the fridge freezer when it is connected to the tow car I am using a Sorento 2016 model and it won't run the fridge freezer
  25. Hi, just wanted to ask what other folk do re towing and leaving fridge on. I have a Dometic fridge and will be using it off grid on gas for a few days. We are then driving down country before going on various CC sites for a couple of weeks, so will have hookup. On the journey down, is it advisable to put the fridge on battery or would it be better to just turn it off for a few hours? Strangely never travelled between sites before, so always just turned fridge on when got there, I know theoretically it's supposed to be ok to have fridge on when towing, but wondered if anyone had run int
