Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator

1 Answer

My RM 2652 when dry camping it uses the 2 batteries overnight ?

It works great on 110volts then as soon as i disconect from power it works fine however it uses the batteries up in 24 hours .

I thought it was designed to run on propane so why is it using all that battery power?

Am I meant to turn something off ?

I have been on lots of trips trying to find out what is using the battery
doing the spark to fuse test ,it's definitely the refrigerator taking the power.
Surely it was not meant to do that? Help anyone

    throughout the night ?

OPERATING MODES
AUTO MODE
Press the AUTO/MANUAL mode selector button (2) to the DOWN position. The AUTO mode indicator lamp
(A) will illuminate.
When operating in the AUTO mode, the AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will illuminate. The control system
will automatically select between AC and GAS operation with AC having priority over GAS. If the control
system is operating on AC energy and it then becomes unavailable, the system will automatically switch to
GAS. As soon as AC becomes available again the control will switch back to AC operation.
If 120 volts AC is not available, the control system will automatically switch to GAS operation. Within 45
seconds the burner should be ignited and operating normally. If unsuccessful, the CHECK indicator lamp (B)
will illuminate.
To restart an ignition attempt with the CHECK lamp illuminated or to clear (turn off) the CHECK lamp, press
the main power ON/OFF button to the OFF and then to the ON position. The control system will attempt a
new 45 second ignition sequence.
On the initial refrigerator start-up on gas (120 volts AC is not available), it may take longer than 45 seconds
to allow air to be purged from the gas line. If the refrigerator has not been used for a long time or the LP tanks
have just been refilled, air may be trapped in the supply lines. To purge the air from the lines may require
resetting the main power ON/OFF button (1) three of four times. If repeated attempts fail to start the LP gas
operation, check to make sure that the LP gas supply tanks are not empty and all manual shutoff valves in
the lines are open.
NOTE: DO NOT continue to reset GAS operation if the CHECK indicator lamp continues to be illuminated
after 3 or 4 tries.

You need to check your fuses on the fuse panel inside your coach. The frig will not operate on gas or electric without 12 volt power to the frig circuit board.

Rm 2652 stays on a while then cuts off and stays off


If you have the yellow epoxy filled circuit board from around 1993-1996 rather than the green newer one you can see the circuits on (take the black cover at back of fridge off to check) it is most likely just a bad circuit board. Otherwise it is most likely low voltage or a bad ground on the 12volt power coming into the fridge. Also make sure your thermostat(if available) is on maximum during testing.
