 If you are having trouble with your Dometic or Norcold rv refrigerator then you are at the right website. We specialize in the cooling units that power the rv refrigerator. The cooling unit is the set of metal coils that are attached to the back of your refrigerator.   The three most common signs that indicate a  bad cooling unit are:

  1. A strong ammonia smell inside the box,  this would indicate a leak in the evaporator section.  If the unit has leaked for an extended amount of time the ammonia smell may no longer be present but you will probably hear a gurgling sound coming from the back of your refrigerator a few minutes after you turn it on. 

  2. If the controls are working and the cooling unit is heating up in the back but there is no cooling taking place inside the box this could be a sign of a blockage in the boiler section. Click here for an excellent article about boiler failures

  3. Another thing to look for, if you unit is not cooling but you don't smell ammonia inside the box, look for a yellow powder around or just above the burner located at the back of the unit. This would indicate a leak in the boiler section. Since this leak is outside the box you would rarely smell it inside.  I see these boiler leaks more frequently in the newer Norcold and Dometic cooling units.

 The three example above should help you identify your cooling unit problem.  If you feel you have a different problem with your refrigerator or need further advice on troubleshooting  your problem, call me at the above number or email me wick@rvcool.com 

When you place and order for a  cooling unit I will  send you a cooling unit from my stock. Once you have changed the cooling units you call me (toll free) so I can arrange for UPS to pick up the old unit and return it to me. See the "Core Return" link for more info on our core return policy.



Retail Customers: 

As a retail customer you have the ability to buy directly from the cooling unit builder and have your replacement cooling unit shipped directly to you via UPS or FedEx.  

If you are in driving distance of our shop in Greenbrier, Arkansas you may bring your RV Refrigerator to our shop and we will install your  cooling unit for you.

  • If the refrigerator is already out of the camper we charge a flat rate of $75 labor to change the cooling unit. (in addition to the cost of the cooling unit)

  •  If you bring the camper we charge a flat rate of $175 labor to pull the refrigerator, change the cooling unit,  and reinstall the refrigerator.  (in addition to the cost of the cooling unit)

  • These installation prices are good for regular size 2 door rv refrigerators and does not include the side-by-side models. The labor to install a cooling unit in a side-by-side rv refrigerator will be higher.

The most common question I am asked by people that visit my website is "how difficult is it to change the cooling unit in my rv refrigerator" and "is this something I can do myself." Well, changing the cooling unit isn't as difficult as it might appear. There are no special tools required, no welding or solder connections to make, the cooling units simply bolt to the back of the refrigerator. Most people with average mechanical ability and a basic set of hand tools can change the cooling unit in there refrigerator in a few hours.  I also have a list of installation instructions for the most common rv refrigerators on my link called "Installation Instructions", find your model number  and read through the instruction to become familiar with the steps involved in changing the cooling unit.



 As you browse through our site, you will see for yourself that  we have set new standards in the cooling units business.  The biggest difference in our cooling units is our new "Bullet-proof Boiler" technology......Our boilers are nicknamed "Bullet-Proof" because they just don't fail.  We  have taken the time to design and test advanced boiler technology and it has been well worth it, we are now able to give a legitimate Lifetime Guarantee on many of our cooling unit models.

I am proud to have the best staff in the cooling unit industry. Compare our welds,  tube bending, or any of our workmanship to any of our competitors. Hands down we build a better cooling unit!

Why are we able to offer a lifetime limited warranty on our cooling units? In short, because of the way we build our cooling units. 

How many times have you heard someone say "Boy, they sure don't build things like the used to" This is especially true with the cooling units in today's rv refrigerators. When I first started in this business back in 1994, the typical rv refrigerator would last fifteen to twenty years. Now days you are lucky to get half that with thousands of refrigerators barely making it out of the factory warranty period every year.

Well, we are changing all that. Our goal has always been to design and build a better quality cooling unit than anyone else, and really give folks their moneys worth. We have made significant design changes to our boilers and use heavier seamless tubing that   make them safer and last much longer. We have also teamed up with companies like www.arprv.com  that have patented an RV Refrigerator Control device that monitors the boiler temperature of an rv refrigerator and protect it from overheating. 

 Please read our article on "why cooling units fail" where we explain why factory units fail in the boiler section, what changes we make on our cooling units and how to prevent premature failures.

Be aware, now that we are offering a lifetime limited warranty that many of our competitors  are offering something similar. Please read our policy that we put in writing, and see that we have a legitimate warranty that explains exactly what we cover. Don't be afraid to look into a companies history and decide for yourself if their warranty is worth the paper it is written on.
