DC operation precautions and guidelines:
The DC operation is not intended for the initial start up and cooling of the refrigerator. Always use either the AC or LP gas mode to
initially start up and cool the refrigerator. The refrigerator and its contents must be cooled and the temperature must be steady before
you operate the refrigerator on DC.
This refrigerator is made to operate on 12VDC power while your vehicle is “in transit”. Operate the refrigerator on DC power only when
the vehicle engine is running.
Keep in mind the following electrical precautions for DC operation of the refrigerator:
For the refrigerator to operate correctly on DC power, the battery must be maintained in a fully charged condition.
- The capacity of the battery charging system must be more than what is necessary for the refrigerator and other DC appliances.
- While the vehicle engine is running, make sure the voltage of the DC power supply leads at the refrigerator is more than 11.5VDC.
Effects of High Altitude on LP Gas Operation
When you operate the refrigerator on LP gas at altitudes higher than 1700m above sea level:
- You may experience reduced cooling performance of the refrigerator.
- You may experience burner outages.
To avoid these possible problems, Thetford recommends that you operate the refrigerator on AC when at altitudes higher than 1700m
above sea level.
Effects of Freezing Temperatures on Refrigerator Operation
A gas absorption refrigerator is not designed to operate in freezing temperatures. If the refrigerator is not equipped for low temperature
operation, and if the cooling system of the refrigerator is exposed to temperatures of 32° F. or lower for an extended period of time,
the refrigerator operation may be disrupted. The refrigerator operation will resume when the cooling system of the refrigerator warms
sufficiently.
If the refrigerator is equipped for low temperature operation, the refrigerator will operate in temperatures down to 0° F.
Disrupted operation of the refrigerator due to extended exposure to temperatures of 32° F. or lower, and any costs incurred to warm the
cooling system of the refrigerator are not covered by the Norcold limited warranty. Please contact your local RV dealer for information
about how to resume refrigerator operation or about how to equip your refrigerator for operation in freezing temperatures.
Do not change the installation or the venting of your refrigerator. Refrigerator failures resulting from changes to either the refrigerator
installation or to the venting are not covered by the Thetford limited warranty.
Refrigerator Care Checklist

- Make sure the air flow in the lower intake vent, through the refrigerator condenser and coils and out the upper exhaust vent is not
blocked or decreased.
- Make sure the area behind the refrigerator is clear. Do not use the area behind the refrigerator for storage of any materials or
combustible materials, especially gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
Installation /Owner’s Manual 9
Defrosting
The cooling fins of the refrigerator operate at below freezing temperature and will naturally form frost from humidity which is always
present in the air. The humidity inside the refrigerator increases:
- with higher outside temperature and humidity.
- with the storage of non-sealed fresh foods or warm foods.
- with the amount of time that the door(s) are open.
- with any air leakage into the refrigerator.
It is normal for frost to collect inside the freezer. Excess frost decreases the cooling performance of the refrigerator. Defrost the
refrigerator and freezer as necessary:
- Remove all food from the refrigerator.
- Turn the refrigerator OFF.
NOTICE
Defrosting the refrigerator makes excess water inside the refrigerator.
- Remove the drain hose from the drip cup at the rear of the refrigerator.
- Put the drain hose into a two liter or larger container to capture water.
- Put dry towels (etc.) inside the refrigerator and freezer to absorb melted frost.
! CAUTION
High temperatures can cause the inside surfaces of the refrigerator to warp or melt. Do not use pans of
HOT water, a hair dryer, or any other high temperature devices to defrost the refrigerator. Do not use any
hard or sharp objects to remove frost. Damage to the interior of the refrigerator can occur.
- To increase the speed of defrosting, put pans of WARM water in the refrigerator and freezer.
- Remove the wet towels (etc.) and dry the interior.
- Remove the drain hose from the large container and put the drain hose back into the drip cup.
- Remove the large container from the enclosure.
