    Product Review

    We purchased the Dometic Fridge to go on our Houseboat and as you could imagine we travel to remote places on the river and is hard to get into some towns to get groceries so we need a fridge that can be reliable and freeze meat and food to suffice us. The Fridge is amazing. The houseboat is in Northern Victoria and is nothing for the weather to reach 40-45 Degrees for up to two three weeks straight in the summer mths. We have it hooked up to 12v solar, on the lowest Cool setting and it cools and freezes without missing a beat. Even in winter when there is less sun it remains running the same. It is peace of mind to have such a reliable product.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

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

    Hi - Yes it does!

    Thank you :)

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

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

    Thanks, Steve

  • Q:What does the climate control button do just above the freezer door?
    A:

    Hi Brad, the fridge control panel comprises the following elements: 

    • ON/OFF button
    • Power LED
    • Status LED
    • Mode button
    • Temperature level
    • LEDs
    • Temperature setting button
  • Q:Is the fridge frost free? Thank you
    A:

    Hi Kathy, regarding defrosting the refrigerator, please note the following;  In high ambient temperatures, the refrigerator may operate continuously, which can lead to excessive formation of frost on the rear wall of the refrigerator compartment. If this is the case, set the temperature control to a lower level (“1” or 2) until resolved. 

    Humidity can cause frost to form in the interior of the freezer compartment. This reduces the cooling capacity. The refrigerator compartment is defrosted automatically while the compressor is not running.

    Hope that helps, many thanks. 

  • Q:Do the Dometic Waeco RPD models have Low Ambient Control (LAC) feature for when outside temp is quite low?
    A:

    Hi there, yes - the Low Ambient Control (LAC) function is built into the Dometic Waeco RPD190 & RP218 fridge-freezer models. The LAC winter mode functionality ensures optimum operation at ambient temperature of below 16°C. This menas your freezer is not at risk of defrosting when exposed to lower ambient temperatures for extended periods, which has been a problem for some RV fridges in the past, particularly older models. Thanks

  • Q:What is the name and size of the compressor in the RPD fridge models? Example: Is it the fully hermetic Secop BD50F (formally Danfos) compressor with fully integrated control electronics?
    A:

    Hi, thanks for your question - The Dometic Waeco RPD190 & RPD 218 fridge models feature a WAECO ACV25DC Compressor.

    Thanks again :)
