Actually it is because the damage is ACCUMULATIVE over TIME
YES.........overheating can/does occur while in transit.
Typically when climbing/descending steep grades (long runs)
Noone pays much attention to it because there is NO obvious indications.......UNTIL one installs an ARP Device.
It monitors perk tube temps in real time and has lower temp set points vs Dometic or Norcold (especially Norcold)
Atwood HAD a helium model that incorporated a 'TILT' indication.......passive as it didn't shut down it just monitored and had a visual tilt reference.
Dometic acquired Atwood and shortly after..no more Helium models.
Too bad neither Dometic/Norcold use a real time temp control system......
