Absorption refrigeration vs. compressor refrigeration

Obvously, the refrigerator in an RV is smaller than your unit at home because of space considerations. Plus, an absorption refrigerator operates differently and requires different maintenance guidelines. An absorption refrigerator, as used in RVs, is a continuous cooling unit with no moving parts. Unlike your refrigerator at home, it has no compressor, which means silent operation.

Because of its operation, it's important to keep your absorption refrigerator level. When your RV is going to be stationary for a period of time, it's a good idea to level it so your refrigerator can operate properly. A good rule to remember is that if you can comfortably walk around your RV with no inclines or wobbling, the unit is level enough for your refrigerator too.

Leveling is not critical when your vehicle is moving. The rolling and pitching movement of a mobile RV help to keep the unit operating efficiently.

Driving in BAD WEATHER:
Hurrican Irene prompted folks to request a link to someplace where you could look up the BAD WEATHER for your area and the predictions.
Then there was Sandy.   What are YOU driving INTO?   (Most drivers don't file a 'flight plan' so they don't check the weather out in front... WHY?)

THIS LINK will take you to page where you can choose (by ticking the boxes on the right) which weather forecast info you see on the map.
Links to Various Hard-to-Find Owners Manuals
Dometic's LW3000 Genset exploded view
Just for fun:
This link is supposed to be for kids -- it is an interactive game to teach them how to properly dispose of or recycle things.
The music and  the faces these things make are cute enough you can kill several minutes just playing with it yourself.  (Link to the folks at>>>)
We encourage all rv'ers to remember the folks that will be coming through later will see what we leave behind... clean up your site and dispose of waste properly!
