The recall has nothing to do with your fridge not working. Your cooling unit has gone bad. And yes you can get a new fridge for a few hundred more than a new cooling unit. And sooner or later PPL motorhomes will run out of their cheap stock. The fridges they have are out of production. I know I am a Dometic dealer.

Here is the trouble shooting manual for your Dometic.
It will tell you what the possible problem is.

If the unit has a good flame and is staying lit throughout the cycle of the fridge, then you probably have a bad cooling unit. Does is cool ok on Electric? If so, then there is another problem. You may have rust build up in the flue that is not allowing the heat from the gas to work correctly. Try taking a screwdriver and small claw hammer. Remove the cover from the burner assembly and place the head of the screwdriver on the flue just above the burner. Tap the screwdriver lightly with the hammer and see if rust falls. If so, continue to do this until it stops. You then need to blow out the burner and try the fridge again.
Hope this helps,

It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.

I suggest first getting it checked. Maybe there is just a small leak which can be sealed and coolant refilled. If say the compressor is damaged or other major component then only the repair cost will dictate what to do next.
Refrigerators are not very complex and have relatively few parts. You will probably get satisfactory results from repairs.
