I agree with 007, the Norcold recalls have been posted for years upon years.
All Norcold 4 door models EVER BUILT are included in the recall and there are a number of 2 door models inlcuded too.
I am sure that there are people driving/towing RV's that have these units in their RV's that have no clue as to recalls, problems, fires, etc.
It is the responsibility of each owner to stay educated and aware of problems and trouble.

She said that the coach was to the ground in less than 10 minutes. There was another couple there that said that the same thing had happened to them two years ago. Both couples had had all the recalls done and both of them had suits against Norcold and one of them was waiting on a settlement.
Neither of the couples had met before and were from different parts of the country.
And to think that there are members of iRV2.com who believe that RV fires happen because of many other causes versus refrigerators.
Those people have their heads in the sand and choose to ignore the facts.
No names needed. They know who they are.

Then he told her what actually happened.
So the professional fire personnel have completed their investigation as to the actual cause for this fire and they have definitely concluded that it was the Norcold fridge versus what some people on this forum had speculated including professional NEWS people, that it was the RV heater.
So much for the authenticity of NEWS people.
