Looks like the refrigerator ignited the wall behind it, melted all of the aluminum frame, then went across the ceiling and the found it way out around the a/c. Research has proven refrigerators are one of the primary causes of fires in campers. It was running.

Hi jdickson! I will echo the sentiments of others and say very sorry for your loss. How badly was your camper damaged? Did it burn up completely?

If it was Dometic or Norcold with proper recall installed PROPERLY, then they could pay money.

Is it the Norcold units that have been having the issues? Or the Dometic? We are looking at, and getting ready to pull the trigger, on a new 5'er and would greatly appreciate any advice on this!

Thanks in advance!
