We had a 1062 in our 2002 Dutch Star. It went about 10 years before the leak started.

My 2007 Domestic went out a couple months ago, I replaced with a Haier from Lowes. Very happy. We almost never dry camp. It works well on i˝verter and is colder, and cools down in about an hour.

Dometic , in my coach had the cooling unit replaced when the fridge was 8 years old, and has been doing fine but is coming on 8 years since that replacement.
Other RV's I've had the Dometic fridges had been up to 14 years old , and had never been touched other than annual cleaning.

My Dometic lasted 8 years before the cooling coils leaked.

We have a Dometic NDR 1292 in our 2001 Tradewinds which we have lived in fulltime and have replaced the cooling unit three times since the motorhome was new.

Although technically our Dometic lasted 13yrs., the last two years of it's life was nothing but a headache. I finally wised up and put in a residential.

I think it's totally unfair to characterize the use of an absorption refrigerator as a bad choice.

Whether you agree or not there is a place in the market for absorption refrigerators.

Those of us who appreciate their unique benefits and the serious implications on our lifestyles using residential refrigerators find this insulting.

The Amish have used Heat Absorption type refrigerators for many years as they are not allowed to have electricity in their homes.

As with anything else, poor maintenance and improper operation will shorten the life expectancy.
