Norcold 1200LR, 1200LRIM, 1201LRIM Refrigerators in Recreational Vehicles (Tue, 25 Mar 2008) Norcold is recalling certain refrigerators, models 1200LR, 1200LRIM, and 1201LRIM, manufactured from March 1, 1999 to February 28, 2001, with cooling units serial numbers between 1008701 and 1273700. The units were installed as original equipment in various recreational vehicles. A fatigue failure in the section of the cooling unit which contains the refrigerant could allow the liquid solution to slowly leak. If a leak occurs and the refrigerator continues to be operated after solution circulation has ceased the heat source could generate very high temperatures. At such high temperatures, the steel material of the cooling unit could soften and rupture. Norcold is working to identify the number of refrigerators that were manufactured with this condition. If refrigerant gas is still in place when the rupture occurs, hydrogen gas may be expelled and could be ignited by the high temperature, possibly causing a fire.

Thank you Mike and Amy,

I just purchased a 2008 Southwind 32VS after owning several Class C's and flat tow a 2005 Toyota Tacoma (post Remco kit). Thank you again for the warm reception and looking foward to being a fulltime member of this forum. I retired in March and hope to do a LOT of travelling now. (Hope gas prices drop a bit though
