Admin: I am not attempting to step on toes nor create trouble. If I am afoul of a rule that I haven't read, please delete this post with the understanding that I hadn't found that I was in violation of said rule.

I recently found this on FB. It is a link to another RV site. the person who wrote this had suffered a refrigerator breakdown and proceeded to repair it with the aid of a friend and another camper.

I didn't read it all the way through but I suspect they simply replaced the defective cooling unit. Not really as big of a deal as the long story suggests.

I read the story earlier. The main gist is that you can replace the cooling unit a lot cheaper than replacing the whole fridge, and that it is within the ability of a DIY'er. A good source for parts, too. As worthwhile as any DIY RV story.
