Dometic RV Refrigerators Alleged to Cause Fires

Source: Class action targets RV refrigerator fires

A class action lawsuit claims that Dometic Corp. sold defective refrigerators used in RVs and boats, leading to at least 3,000 explosions and fires since 1997.  The lawsuit says that every gas absorption refrigerator manufactured by Dometic since 1997 shares common technology and common defects, including the risk of the unit’s boiler tube corroding and expelling hydrogen gas that can cause a fast-spreading fire or explosion.
