Let’s rewind time a little. In the last episode on the ongoing saga of my broken fridge, I opted to drive out to Arizona to attend the RTR and Xscapers convergence rather than wait in Texas to get the replacement done at the Casita factory. I’ve not regretted my decision, but it’s now been over three weeks that I’ve been living out of a cooler and I’m ready to have my fridge back.
Why do I want to replace the whole fridge instead of just changing out the cooling unit? The cooling unit direct from Dometic is $695, where a new fridge is $1,095. Only $400 difference, and at nearly 17 years old what’s the chance of something else on it breaking within the next year or two?
The trim broke over a year ago which means there was nothing to support the front panel and I had to get rid of it, exposing the ugly aluminum (have you noticed I haven’t shown any interior pictures of the Casita lately?) and all of the door shelves were slowly disintegrating too, bits of plastic breaking off that would eventually have led to them becoming unusable. I’d rather replace the whole thing and not have to worry about it.
