Perfect Solution

By: on 31 May 2022

We are very pleased with our CRX80 fridge. Our 25 year old absorption fridge needed replacing & after extensive research we settled on the CRX80 as there was no absorption fridge suitable. It has a tropical rating which is perfect for our North QLD holiday. It was easy to instal with clear instructions. It only required a little basic cabinetry work and it looks as if it has always been part of the caravan. We are very happy with our purchase. Thank you

Great fridge, just what we needed. Outer dimensions were important and it fitted perfectly. Very versatile with the freezer option but will probably use as a fridge with the freezer compartment removed. Staff at RV couldn't be more helpful. Delivery on time as promised. Will definitely deal with them again.

CRX 80

By: on 19 February 2019

We've only had the fridge in for a week but seems to be working quite well in the hot conditions. It seems to be built quite well and well finished off. Works heaps better than our old 3 way Electrolux ever did. The freezer works quite well and we've given it a bit of a test out to see how long it took to freeze some mince. I can't remember how long it took but it wasn't long. It runs very quitly. Yes you can hear when it's on but it doesn't wake you up in the middle of the night when it starts up. One week in to our new fridge and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope I can say the same in 12 months time and again in 7 years time. We'll see.

  • How often do I need to service my Dometic RV/Caravan appliances?

    Dometic recommend servicing their gas appliances on a yearly basis, even if the vehicle has not been used. Additionally, bear in mind that insects can built nests in the gas appliances which will cause the appliances to stop working. It can also cause potentially dangerous scenarios.

    For other appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, to ensure the appliances to work efficiently and last longer it is recommended to clean the condenser. 

  • What do I need to think about in regards of the ventilation with my Dometic compressor fridge?

    Dometic Compressor fridges work best when there is air flowing across the compressor.

    For small to medium sized Dometic fridges (CRX50, CRX80 & CRX110), minimum of one vent is required. This should be mounted in the van wall, parallel to the compressor at the top of the fridge. Vent options are:

    For the CRX140 is a little different, the fridge compressor is mounted on the top of the fridge. It is best to only use one vent mounted at the top rear of the fridge. Install the fridge in a way that you can pull air from the front, up the side of the fridge over the compressor and out the vent.

    The compressors above 140 Litre, (RUC6408X & RUC8408X), these large sized fridges require two vents, one at the bottom and one at the top. In this case it would be best to choose the 2 x LS300 vents.

  • What do I need to know about installing my 12v compressor fridge in my van?

    Installation instructions will come with your 12V Compressor Fridge. The installation/manual document will also cover:

    • Recommended ventilation  
    • Side and rear gap sizes for installing in your RV cavity
    • Mounting
    • Wiring

    Depending on the model, there will also be information regarding; maintenance, cleaning, defrosting, energy saving tips, reversible doors, inserting new door panels and troubleshooting.

  • Does the fridge auto select between 12v/24v?

    Hi - Yes it does!

  • Do you need to disconnect the battery if connecting to 240v mains supply?

    Hi there - No you don't, 240v takes priority.
