How to properly maintain your camper refrigerator?


It is common for camper fridges to develop problems due to the amount of time they are used. To prolong the life of the fridge, it also requires regular maintenance.

Close the fridge door

Make sure that the refrigerator door gasket is always in good condition. Thermistors and sensors fail when the door is left open or has a weak seal. Keeping the fridge at an optimal temperature requires more effort, which can quickly lead to damage.

Do not park on uneven surfaces

The refrigerator of a camper can suffer problems if we park on uneven surfaces for a long time. If we park on a sloped surface, the refrigerator’s refrigeration unit could have a leak. The probability of this happening is not the highest, but it is possible.

Periodics inspections

Cleaning, maintenance and inspections must be carried out regularly. A cooling coil, for example, must be cleaned periodically. The refrigerator’s cooling system will eventually have problems because it collects dust and debris from the air. Be sure to periodically check the refrigeration unit, air vents, and electrical connections. Our motorhome fridge can sometimes need professional repair. This is the most effective way to repair the refrigerator after doing all the maintenance and possible fixes without success.
