    This fridge is performs exactly what the description says it will. Easy to install as the measurements supplied are exact and not converted. Old fridge ran on 6 this one on 3 to achieve the same temperature.

    Shopping Experience

    This was a seamless process with sales people to help you through the process. The salesman was knowledgeable of the product and not pushy to close the sale. The delivery was quick and not expensive. Would use My Generator again.

    This fridge is the perfect size fridge. Small enough to cool down quickly when first switched on, but large enough to handle a weeks worth of food and drinks for the whole family. It’s very economical power wise and uses very little gas. Worth every penny!

    Shopping Experience

    Order was processed quickly and shipped within a couple of days. Can’t fault the shopping experience at all.

    Very impressed with construction and finish of fridge. After installation it was tried on 12 volt, 240volt, and LPG and worked like a charm.

    Shopping Experience

    I found the staff excellent to speak and deal with, and most helpful during purchase, and would have no hesitation dealing with them again.

The bonus Dometic 8 Litre 12Volt Vehicle Cooler/Warmer is a compact unit that fits neatly inside your car to keep your drinks cool and food fresh on the road.

Product Description:

Dometic RM2553: 148 ltr 3 way refrigerator. Manual control model. Absorption refrigerator for 12 volts, 240 volts and gas. Single-door models, 632 mm wide.

This popular caravan refridgerator offers you the opportunity to choose your energy source between battery and mains power or gas operation. And it does so completely noiselessly - with no motor hum to disturb your sleep. These are designed to be built into the caravan/motorhome and feature reversable hinges (left or right opening), the door infil is not provided but will accept a piece of laminex or 3 ply to suit your decor.

Key benefits:

  • Gas operation with Battery powered ignition
  • Thermostatic control for 240 volt, 12 volt and gas
  • Top mounted controls
  • Wide metal mounting flanges for built in application
  • Positive lock door handles
  • Adjustable, removable door racks.
  • Reversable door hinges (left or right opening)

Notes:

  • There is no exterior door skin. The door is silver coloured coated sheet steel, with black plastic trim. A laminate panel or ply can be fitted to the door to match your décor.

  • For recommendations on appropriate fitting accessories to go with the refrigerator (and advice on optimal ventilation set-up), please click on the below INSTALLATION GUIDE.

  • Absorption 3 way refrigerators need to be installed and certified by a qualified and licensed gas-fitter, as improperly or illegally installed products will void the manufacturer’s warranty, and could pose a safety risk.

  • While 3 way absorption fridges have the ability to run off 3 different power sources (12V / 240V / Gas), they are primarily designed with gas operation in mind; they provide exceptional efficiency when running on gas. However for 12 Volt operation, this is only recommended with absorption fridges when the vehicle is running, otherwise it can exhaust your 12 volt power source (battery) very quickly.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Does the Dometic Fridge range come with all parts needed to install and operate?
    A:

    Hi there, an upright Dometic 3 Way Fridge requires correct installation and ventilation to ensure optimum performance and safe operation. You can see listed on the product page under the Accessory List there are Vents and Gas Flue kits required as part of the installation. On the INSTALLATION GUIDE  document, you can see what recommended vents and gas flues go with your particular sized fridge.  

    For customers buying a Dometic fridge to replace their existing one, they often already have the required installation accessories (vents and flues) and may not need to add them to their fridge purchase. Thanks.

  • Q:With regards to the Dometic Waeco Upright fridge models. Can I choose which side of the door the hinge goes on?
    A:

    Yes.

    Some models require the customer to choose a hinge position prior to delivery. You will notice a Left Or Right Hand hinge option on the product page.

    With all the other models you will be supplied with a hinge conversion kit. The door will come with the hinge on the right hand side as standard. You can easily change it over using the kit. Feel free to view the Installation instructions on the product page for each model.

  • Q:I am traveling to Darwin and I have heard that some 3 way fridges are better than others at performing in tropical climates with very high ambient temperatures. Which one of these models is “T” rated?
    A:

    Thanks very much for the inquiry. Climate Class Ratings for 3 - Way Fridges are a hot topic (pun intended). The European Union (CEN) fridge performance standard is becoming increasingly accepted and the main rating that caravan enthusiasts look out for is the “T” rating.

    Climate class ratings are as follows: 

    T Rating (tropical) - are designed and rated to work up to 43 degrees C

    ST Rating (sub-tropical) - are designed and rated to work up to 36 degrees C

    SN and N (sub normal and normal) - are designed and rated to work up to 32 degrees C.

     

    All of the Dometic [RM] range of fridges are T - Rated, Except the RM2350, RM2355. 

    The RM8501, RM2355 and RM2350 are ST rated

     

    Let us help you make your final decision with our Buyers Guide to Caravan Fridges

  • Q:Do you require a 12v DC power supply to operate fridge on gas or 240v mains power?
    A:

    Not all Dometic RM models. Models such as the RM2350, RM2453, RM2553, RM4601 are manually selected to gas and have a push button ignition which means they do not need a 12v electrical connection ie they are manual ignition. They reduce gas flame to a pilot flame when not needing to cool further/cycle off and increase flame when they do. 

    On the other hand all MES - Manual Energy Selection , AES - Automatic Energy Selection  & UES (Selectable AES & MES modes) all require a 12v feed to give basic function even on AC power.  One of the things this enables is the engaging of the gas supply and the ignition of the gas. 

    The MES/AES/UES models disengage gas supply when cycling. When cycling back on the gas supply is engaged and the ignition automatically & electronically engaged. 

  • Q:What does climate rating stand for on a fridge like this? Thanks
    A:

    Thanks very much for the inquiry. Climate Class Ratings for 3 - Way Fridges are a hot topic (pun intended). The European Union (CEN) fridge performance standard is becoming increasingly accepted and the main rating that caravan enthusiasts look out for is the “T” rating.

    Climate class ratings are as follows: 

    T Rating (tropical) - are designed and rated to work up to 43 degrees C

    ST Rating (sub-tropical) - are designed and rated to work up to 36 degrees C

    SN and N (sub normal and normal) - are designed and rated to work up to 32 degrees C.

     

    Most of the Dometic [RM] range of fridges are T Rated. 

    The RM8501, RM2355 and RM2350 are ST Rated.
