Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator

1 Answer

Check light fading in and out

I just drove my RV school bus down to Costa Rica and had to change the propane tank to a different style tank and fitting. I connected the new fitting to my inlet hose and connected the tank. There are no leaks, found by using a soap solution around new fittings. The refrigerator ran fine all night, and then this afternoon, I noticed the check light on. I turned the power off and on again. The check light came on. I reset it once more and now the check light fades on and off. The refrigerator and freezer seem to be working fine, but the light is concerning me. Any insight?
*I have noticed that the propane comes out faster than my US style tank did, when I use my stove.

Where can I find replacement for atlas refrigerator door plastic shelf

Are you in Costa Rica? If so, the Atlas manufacturing facility is in Heredia, close to PriceSmart. Look for the Mabe sign on the road to Heredia from the traffic circle near the Hospital Mexico, you'll see it on your left. They have many shelf units etc. for Atlas refrigerators. Hope this helps, not sure if you are in CR or not. Cheers.

3 way dometic RV fridge RM2612 won't work on propane or 12 V

Check any fuses/circuit breakers in harness from battery. That battery should supply 12 volts dc to fridge lugs/terminals at bottom of fridge on outside behind vent.
If battery is good and hooked up properly but no 12 volts to fridge, then you will have to trace back to battery for broken /bad wire. If you want to test quickly, just run 2 jumper wires from battery to those 2 lugs marked + and - Battery + to + (pos)at fridge, and - battery to -Neg at fridge. That should allow you to run it on propane or 12 volt. Remember, running it on 12 volts will kill that battery pretty quick, unless it's being charged. When you are plugged in, the converter supplies the 12 volts to your fridge, as well as should be charging your battery.

I am new to the RV world. I have Dometic DM2652.

Yes, you can operate the fridge on propane while driving, instead of running the generator for electric operation. However, you should have a dual tank setup to prevent running out of propane.

Propane tanks with OPD valves aren't holding a true 20 lbs of LP, but rather only hold 17-18 lbs of LP. However, if you're swapping/exchanging your tanks instead of having them refilled, you're only getting 15 lbs of LP in the tanks these days, (check the label at the bottom of the tank to confirm). Hence the reason to have a dual tank setup on your RV to get longer run times.

I thought you might want to have a tech manual for your fridge, so here's a link to the Dometic site, you just need to select yours based on the manufacture date, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Refrigerator on rv keeps going out

Two reasons, first would be that the burner is dirty and needs cleaning. Second is that the thermocouple is either faulty or incorrectly installed. By this I mean that it might be slightly too far away from the flame to be able to conduct sufficient heat to keep the thermocouple open. This can happen when you park or drive and the rv is at different angles. So the flame does not heat the thermocouple enough and it shuts off the supply.
