Customer Question
Have a Dometic RM2354...

Have a Dometic RM2354 in a Four Wheel brand camper. The fridge works fine 0n 110v, and works fine on 12v (although only for a short time before crashing the battery system) but will not work in the propane mode.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Batteries are fine. Have 2 AGM batteries and 100w solar.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

Four Wheel brand Hawk - August 2014

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have fixed minor stuff. Had heater repaired by RV facility a year or so ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just it is a 3-way fridge - works ok except in propane mode

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

You can't run this on battery mode except when it is moving and has an outside 12 VDC charging source. On LP, does it try to ignite or not?

Usually you can hear the igniter clicking when it tries to ignite.

RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 5 years ago

So it ignites and just doesn't cool well?
