For 20 years we have owned Casitas with Dometic refrigerators. During this time we have broken the large bottom shelf on the door 3 times, maybe 4. I have bought replacement shelves at our local RV parts store each time. I had been told Dometic sold them as a set of 3 so that’s what I bought, each time. For such a simple part, they are kinda pricey and 2 out of the 3 shelves were never used.
I had learned early on to remove heavy items and store them in the sink temporarily when driving onto a ferry boat, which sometimes has a drop of an inch or so getting either on or off. But sometimes I’ve forgotten, or we hit a pothole, or have been forced to detour on a rough road with no prior warning. That’s when the lower shelf breaks.
Well, on our last trip the lower shelf broke and duct tape fixed it temporarily. This time I checked Casita’s Parts Department and found to my surprise that the shelves could be bought separately. Duh!
Perhaps, it's only me that has had this happen. Surely no one else took 20 years to figure out the shelves could be bought separately. But for what it’s worth that’s my story. Hope it's of help.
