Holy cow. Thank you, Flcoxjr, for the link to the Diagnostic Service Manual. I had no idea this existed. I wish we'd had it before we started dinking around with the refrigerator, it would have been so helpful. When we got the packet full of literature from casita, the only documentation we were given was the installation manual which is of no help whatsoever, and it had a LITTLE bit of info. But it doesn't always look right. For instance, on pg 22 of the installation manual we were given, there is a picture of the propane assembly that bears no resemblance to the one in our 2454. For instance, it shows the ignitor to be on the left of the assembly whereas ours is tucked in underneath the flue, where you can't get at it. I've wondered often how some folks say just clean the ignitor. We can't get at ours without dismantling a bunch of stuff.
The repair place I went to in Rochester,WA was not an 'official' approved service center, but they said they work on Dometics 'all the time'. I believe them, but still...........they didn't fix it, and now I know I can throw parts at it just as capably as they could and for a lot less labor cost.
We have a rain front moving in, thank goodness, although several years ago the usual Columbus Day storm blew out all the lights for a week or so...so I might be camping in my backyard! Still, the rain is welcome. I feel sorry for the folks in SC, but I sure wish...actually the whole West Coast..wishes we'd get some of that rain. We need it so very badly. Anyone who is familiar with Mt. Rainier (but hasn't been near it lately) will be aghast to hear that if you have boots on you can walk across Rimrock Lake. That's scary.
So we might not get to the camper to fix it. That's okay, we're still pulling to go camping on Monday. We're going to Sequim and it is famous for being in the 'rain shadow'. And, before you ask I don't want y'all to sound like a bunch of touristas..Sequim is pronounced "Squim". Or, to the locals, "squirm"...;-)
