Just got notification from Thompson’s that there is a potential fire risk with the Dometic fridge fitted to 2016/17 Rapido. It’s to do with the the 12v operating mode. They advise to disconnect the 12v connector immediately and isolate the gas supply.
I got this notice today also, but in January Ruairi (LTS) phoned me and told me that there was a recall on the refrigerator and he was sending me a lower amp fuse and a little sticker to stick on the fuse box to say that the modification had been carried out.
I spoke with him today and he thinks this is the same one, he will confirm on Monday.
This motorhome lark is turning out to be hardship.
If you buy an auld yoke, it will breakdown and leave you stranded.
If you buy a brand new shiny piece of kit, the manufacturers issue you with a recall email and leave you stuck at home.
The letter they sent came with instructions from Rapido on how to disconnect the 12v supply. It’s dated 29/06/17!!! I also read a post on another forum about this issue and it was highlighted in April. Seems to me that either Thompson’s or Rapido are a bit slow in notifying affected customers.
