RV refrigerators are an essential part of enjoying your trip on the road. They keep our drinks, frozen foods, and fresh vegetables cold and safe to eat throughout your trip.
Unlike residential refrigerators, RV fridges are designed specifically for the bumps and rough terrains that most RVs travel over. They have fewer moving parts than residential fridges, making them less susceptible to “abuse” and more durable. However, they still require regular maintenance to keep them working properly. This article will provide some tips and troubleshooting steps to help you get the most out of your rv refrigeration.
- Check Door Seals and Refrigerator Ventilation
Properly sealing the doors on your RV refrigerator is important to prevent warm air from entering the cooling area. Check the seals regularly and clean them if necessary. In addition, it is a good idea to make sure there are no gaps or cracks in the doors that could let hot air in. It is also important to ensure that the vents on your fridge are open and free from any obstructions so that they can adequately remove heat from the fridge and allow cool air to circulate.
- Check the Fridge is Level
It is very important to make sure your RV is level when camping because RV fridges rely on gravity for their cooling process. If your RV is out of level, the chemicals in the fridge may not be able to circulate properly which will negatively affect its ability to cool. It is best to use a bubble level to check the refrigerator and adjust as needed.
