Will Your RV Burn to the Ground?

Not a nice thought, but it happens on rare occasion.  That will certainly ruin your day.

I received an interesting letter in the mail, from the Norcold Refrigerator Company.  It stated:

Norcold, Inc has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1200, 1201, 1210 and 1211 model gas/electric refrigerators with serial numbers from 315525 to 13088811, non consecutive, should be recalled.  The refrigerator's serial number is located inside the fresh food compartment.  These refrigerators may have cooling units with a cooling unit serial number between 700000 to 1308579.  This is a new recall to include all 1200, 1201, 1210 and 1211 models.

Even if your refrigerator was repaired as part of a previous recall, it is necessary to have it repaired again to minimize the risk of injury or death due to fire.

The installation of the High Temperature Sensor will be at no cost to you.

As I researched this recall, it basically pertained to all the four door refrigerators, which we have in the Journey.  Norcold says to discontinue using the refrigerator and contact an RV service center to get it repaired.
