Hi all, although I just signed up to the forum I have been a lurker for a year while in my quest to find a Class A to suit my wife 2 dogs and of course me. We have looked at a lot and nothing seems to jump out at us just yet. We are looking for used since we are new to RVing. We are leaning towards a Bounder 34T, year 2000 since it fits our needs. I was looking at one today and I noticed that all the plastic inside the fridge had a yellowing. The freezer part was a bright white and the racks in the bottom were white. I am sure I could live with this since the rest of the coach is in reasonable condition for it's age but I have never seen this. Anyone have any idea? I thought it might be a reaction to the cleaner that the PO may of used but seems if that was the case the freezer would be like that to.

Normally, plastic "yellowing" is caused by sunlight. Perhaps the frig was left open during storage, exposing the interior to the sun. It will not harm anything, I'd leave it as-is, other than normal cleaning.
Some harsh chemicals will eat into the plastic, if you do use one, do so on a small out-of-sight test area. I do know Westly's Bleach White sidewall tire cleaner will remove yellowing from plastic, and in the process removes that damaged plastic, leaving a stippled surface which is much harder to keep clean. I'll never do that again.

You could also try a plastic polish in a small unseen part to see if that works. I have found that when the plastic has a lot of UV exposure and yellows it becomes more brittle as well. You might have to be a little more careful with it. The other option, if this is a dealer, is to make a new refrigerator part of the sale.

I recently cleaned all my cabinets with Scotts Liquid Gold. I swear the dash, console, and plastic along the side of the windshield have greatly turned more yellow. I assume from the fumes while in storage. Maybe same deal with open frig :(
