of gas operation. To troubleshoot, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the refrigerator. (Press the ON/OFF (1) to
“OFF”.)
AES
The refrigerator is equipped with an Automatic Energy
Selector (AES) controlling the operation and energy supply.
NOTe! 12V must always be available to supply the
electronics.
The system selects the available energy source in the order:
1. 230-240V
2. 12V
3. LP gas
Turn off the AES function if you want the refrigerator to run
on LP gas only.
Whilst mobile:
• Do not operate the refrigerator on LP gas.
• Turn off the gas bottle.
2.
3.
Check that there is enough gas in the gas bottle, that its
valve is open and that any valves in the gas line to the
refrigerator are open.
3.
Turn on the refrigerator again. (Press the ON/OFF button
(1) to “ON” .) After 10 sec. AES will repeat the ignition
sequence.
4.
Should the warning lamp come on again after approx. 6
minutes, the failure is still present. Repeat the procedure
once more. If this does not help, contact an authorised
service provider in your area.
ABNORMAL OPERATION
Any of the following are considered to be abnormal operation
and may require servicing:
• Yellow tipping of the burner flame.
• Sooting up area surrounding burner.
• Burner not igniting properly.
• Burner failing to remain alight.
In case the appliance fails to operate correctly, contact an authorised Dometic Service Centre.
STARTING THE REFRIGERATOR
1.
2.
Press the ON/OFF button (1). The refrigerator starts in the
mode it was in when it was turned off.
Press the AES/GAS button (2) and LED (A) or (B) comes
on. Select AES or LP gas only by pressing the AES/GAS
button (2) once if necessary.
230-240V OPERATION
When a mains connection is available, AES will select this.
Please note, that even being in AC mode, 12V DC is necessary
for the internal supply of the electronics.
If a 230V-240V mains supply is available:
• AES selects this as the energy source and LEDs (A) and
(C) come on.
• When the vehicle’s engine is running, AES selects 12V
operation and LEDs (A) and (D) are illuminated unless
LP gas only operation has been selected manually.
If neither mains nor a 12V battery supply are available:
• AES selects LP gas operation and LEDS (A) and (B)
come on.
12V OPERATION
AES will select the 12V mode of operation as soon as the
vehicle engine is running (detected by the alternator connection
of the fridge D+).
If the 12V DC goes down below 9V DC, the system will shut
down completely.
LP gas-only operation can be selected by pressing the AES/
GAS button (2) until LED (B) comes on; the AES function is
then turned off and LED (A) goes out. The Temperature selector button (3) is used to set the electronic thermostat. The LEDs
(e) show the value set on the thermostat.

SWITCHING BETWEEN ENERGY SOURCES Defrosting
When switching from one energy source to another, there are
some delays implemented in the AES system. The 15 min.
delay between switching off the engine and starting gas mode
is intended to delay the starting of gas mode e.g. when stopping
at a filling station.
Frost will gradually accumulate on the refrigerating surfaces.
Each time the door is opened some of the cold air in the refrigerator spills out and is replaced by warm moist room air. As
this air is cooled, the moisture is deposited onto the evaporator coils or other cold surfaces inside the refrigerator and can
cause frost build-up. It is important that you do not leave the
unit’s door open any longer than necessary. This will reduce
frost formation and increase the efficiency of your refrigerator.
The frost must not be allowed to grow too thick as it acts as an
insulator and adversely affects refrigerator performance. Check
the formation of frost regularly every week and when it gets
about 3 mm thick, defrost the refrigerator.
WARNING! It is not allowed to have a naked
flame at a gas filling station. If you are not sure,
that your stop is shorter than 15 min., you are
advised to set the ON/OFF switch (1) to “OFF”,
when stopping at a filling station.
REGULATING THE TEMPERATURE
Do not try to accelerate defrosting by using any kind
of heating appliance, as this might damage the plastic
surfaces of the refrigerator. Neither should any sharp
objects be used to scrape off the ice.
The position number refers to Fig.1.
It will take a few hours for the refrigerator to reach normal
operating temperature. So we suggest you start it well in
advance of a trip and if possible store it with precooled foodstuffs.
The temperature of the refrigerator main compartment is set
for all three sources of energy, by means of the Temperature
selector button (3). After turning on the refrigerator the system
automatically chooses the mid-position. With some experience
you will soon find a suitable setting, bigger circles indicate
lower temperatures. This normally does not need resetting
because the same thermostat controls the main compartment
temperature for any of the three sources of energy.

TRAVEL CATCH
RM 2555
Make sure that the travel catch is engaged when the motorhome is on the move.
using the refrigerator
WARNING! DO NOT store explosive substances
in the refrigerator, such as cigarette lighter gas,
gasoline, ether or the like.
zP
To defrost the refrigerator, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the refrigerator. (Press the ON/OFF
button (1) to ”OFF”.)
2. Empty the refrigerator. (Remove ice trays
and food.)
3. Leave the drip tray under the finned evaporator.
4. Leave the cabinet and freezer door open.
Defrost water runs from the drip tray through
a plastic drain water hose to the outside of the
vehicle. When all the frost has melted - dry the
interior of the refrigerator with a clean cloth and
replace ice trays and food. Set the thermostat to
the coldest position for a few hours. Then, reset
the thermostat to the desired setting, usually at
mid setting.
To defrost the refrigerator, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the refrigerator. (Press the ON/OFF
button (1) to ”OFF”.)
2. Empty the refrigerator. (Remove ice trays
and food.)
3. Leave the cabinet and freezer door open.
Food storage
Always keep food in closed containers. Never put hot food in
the refrigerator; allow it to cool first.
The frozen food compartment is intended for the storage of frozen food and for making ice. Most kinds of frozen food can be
stored in the frozen food compartment for about a month. This
period of time may vary, however, and it is important to follow
the instructions on the individual packages.
RM 4605
Ice making
Fill the ice tray to just below the brim with drinking water and
place them on the bottom of the freezer compartment. Ice will
be made more rapidly if the thermostat is set at its highest position (biggest circle), but be sure to move the thermostat back
to normal setting when the ice is formed; the refrigerator might
otherwise become too cold.
Defrost water runs from a collector channel to a
receptacle at the rear of the refrigerator where it
normally evaporates. With a lot of defrost water,
as a result of heavy frost build-up on the freezer
plate and the cooling fins, move the plastic drain
tube in to a watertight bucket or container. (Access through the lower ventilation grill on the
outside of the vehicle). As the frost melts, the
water will flow into the container. Replace the
drain tube to its original position after defrosting.
Defrost water in the freezer compartment should
be mopped up with a cloth.
When the ice has melted - wipe the refrigerator dry, restart it and then, place the food items
back inside but wait until the refrigerator is cold
before making ice cubes.
CLEANING THE REFRIGERATOR
Product care - some useful hints
Clean the inside of the refrigerator regularly to keep it fresh
and hygienic.
Make sure that:
• Defrosting is carried out periodically.
• The refrigerator is clean and dry with the door left open
when it is not to be used for some time.
• Liquids or items with a strong odour are well packed.
• The ventilation openings are unobstructed.
• The doors are secured by means of the travel catch when the
motorhome is on the move.
Soak a cloth in a solution consisting of a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to half a litre of warm water. Wring out the cloth
and use it to clean the interior of the refrigerator and its fittings.
Never use detergents, scouring powder, strongly
scented products or wax polish to clean the interior
of the refrigerator as they may damage the surfaces
and leave a strong odour.
Km
Troubleshooting
The exterior of the refrigerator should be wiped clean now and
then, using a damp cloth and a small quantity of detergent. But
not the door gasket, which should only be cleaned with soap
and water and then thoroughly dried.
If the refrigerator fails to work
Before calling an authorised service technician:
The cooling unit behind the refrigerator should be cleaned with
a brush from time to time, but make sure that the refrigerator is
switched off when doing this.
• Ensure that the instructions in this manual have been followed.
• Check to make sure that the refrigerator is not tilted excessiveley.
• Verify that the LEDs on the control panel are lit when the
ON/OFF button (1) is turned on. (12V must be available.)
• Check that the 12V fuse is intact.
Note! Before servicing and when checking the fuses disconnect the wall plug and the 12V wires.
• Check the fuses on the circuit board which is located under
the cover on the back of the refrigerator.
• If the mains voltage are connected but the refrigerator stays
in gas operation -> is the refrigerator correctly connected and
is the fuse (230-240V) intact?
• If the refrigerator does not operate in DC mode when
the engine is running -> is the alternator (D+) connection
made correctly?
• If the Warning indicator lamp (F) lights up -> see ”Gas
troubleshooting” for further information.
Replacing the bulb
To replace the bulb, follow these steps:
1. Remove the lamp cover.
(RM 4605 - push the lamp cover backwards)
2.
Replace the old bulb with an appliance bulb of the same
wattage (12V, max 10W).
3.
Replace the cover.
HEATING CABLE
During the summer months of high temperatures and humidity, the metal frame between the
freezer and fresh food compartments may have
water droplets forming. This refrigerator comes
standard with a 12V DC heating cable that will
evaporate the water droplets when they form.
If the refrigerator is not cold enough it may be because:
CLIMATECONTROL
SWITCH
• The ventilation is inadequate owing to reduced area of the
ventilation passages (partial blockage of grilles from wire
mesh etc.).
• The evaporator is frosted up.
• The temperature control setting is incorrect.
• The gas pressure is incorrect - check the pressure regulator at
the gas container.
• The ambient temperature is too high.
• Too much food is loaded at one time.
• The door is not properly closed or the magnetic sealing strip
is defective.
ON
To have the heating
cable on, you position
the switch located beneath the control panel
to I, see Fig. 2.
The heating cable can be
left on continuously or
only used when temperatures require it.
OFF
RM 4605
The refrigerator is not cold enough
Fig. 2
Note! The heating cable will draw 12V DC
power continuously when in the ON (I) position. It should be turned off when a charging
source is not available.
TURNING OFF THE REFRIGERATOR
If the refrigerator still does not work properly, call an authorised service technician.
If the refrigerator is not to be used for some time:
1. Turn off the refrigerator. (Press the ON/OFF button (1)
to “OFF”.)
2.
Shut off any on-board valve in the gas line to the
refrigerator.
3.
Pull out the plug from the wall socket.
4.
Empty the refrigerator. Defrost and clean it as described
earlier. Leave the doors of the refrigerator and frozen food
compartment ajar.
WARNING! The sealed cooling system must not
be opened, since it contains corroding chemicals
under high pressure.
MAINTENANCE
REMOVAL OF FLUE GASES
The ventilation passage at the rear of the recess, between the
outer wall of the vehicle and the refrigerator must be sealed
off against the living space, so cold draughts are excluded
(winter camping) and no flue gases can penetrate into the
motorhome.
• This appliance must be serviced by an authorised person. We
recommend that an authorised service technician checks the
refrigerator once a year.
• The “Installation and operating instructions manual” should
always be available.
• Ensure that the gas safety shut-off valve is working properly.
• Make sure that the ventilation openings are unobstructed.
• See to it that the burner is clean and free from combustible
material.
• All connections in the LP gas system should be checked for
gas leaks. Connections can be tested for leaks using a soap
solution. DO NOT use a naked flame! If there is any suspicion of damage, call for an authorised service technician.
The flue gases are dispersed from the ventilation passage using
the Dometic flueing system. The top, bottom and sides of the
ventilation passage should be insulated to prevent condensation and cold draughts. The ventillation passage walls must be
constructed of a non combustable material.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The refrigerator is intended for installation in a motorhome,
and the information relates to this application. A correct installation is important for correct operation of the appliance. The
refrigerator must be installed on a solid floor and must be level.
With the vehicle carefully levelled, the refrigerator should be
level both ways in the freezer compartment. Free air circulation
over the fins of the cooling unit is essential.

VENTILATION GRILLES
We recommend fitting the Dometic ventilation system, which
is specially developed by Dometic for this purpose. The
Dometic ventilation grilles permit inspection and small repairs
to be carried out without the necessity of removing the refrigerator from the recess.
If there is no outer grille at floor level where leaking gas can
escape, a 40 mm hole to the outside should be made in the
floor of the recess to drain any unburned gas to the outside. Fit
the hole with wire mesh and an angled plate to protect it from
stones, mud etc.

INSTALLATION/BUILDING-IN
Securing the refrigerator
The refrigerator must not be exposed to radiated heat from hot
objects. Excessive heat irradiation impairs performance and
leads to increased energy consumption. For this reason the refrigerator should be installed if possible not at the entrance side
of the vehicle - normally orientated south and often with an
awning which would impair the dispersion of heat and combustion gases from the ventilation openings.
For the best cooling performance, when installing the refrigerator model(s):
• RM 2355 - the installer must block the space between the
storage cabinet and the top of the refrigerator.
• RM 2455, RM 2555 & RM 4605 - the installer must block
any space between the counter, storage area or ceiling and
top of the refrigerator greater than 40 mm.
It is not a good practice to install the refrigerator so that the
vent openings are covered by the vehicle’s entrance door when
this is set open. This would reduce the ventilation airflow to the
cooling unit and reduce refrigeration performance.
Otherwise the heat will become trapped in this space, making
the top of the refrigerator hot, thus reducing the efficiency of
the unit.
After the refrigerator is put in place, insuring a combustion
seal at the front frame, the refrigerator is to be secured in the
enclosure with screws. (These screws are not included.)
Failure to follow the sequence in securing the refrigerator in
enclosure can cause leakage between the frame and cabinet.
The refrigerator has to be installed in a substantial enclosure
and must be level. For information about dimensions, see
”Technical data”.
The bottom of the enclosure must be horizontal and even so
that the refrigerator can be easily pushed into place. It must be
sturdy enough to carry the weight of the refrigerator.
The five screws should be installed in the
following order:
A length of sealing strip is
applied to the rear surface
of the front frame for this
purpose, see Fig. 8 / Fig. 9.
Fig. 8
RM 2355
Make sure that there is a
complete seal between the
front frame of the refrigerator and top, sides and
bottom of the enclosure.

CAUTION! Check that the gas supplied to the refrigerator
is at the correct pressure.
The gas installation and servicing must be carried out by an
authorised person and conform to gas fitting regulations.
The appliance shall be installed in accordance with AS 5601Gas Installations.
The gas supply pipe should be connected to the gas inlet connection at the rear of the refrigerator by means of a suitable
threaded coupling.
The connection nipple is furnished with an ISO 7/1 - Rp 1/8
internal pipe thread connection.
Two screws installed in the rear base, see
Fig. 15.
In making the connection to the refrigerator, a union gas cock
of an approved type bottled gas must be incorporated in the
supply line in a position that is readily accessible to the user.
For eventual servicing purposes, the union should be on the
outlet side of the cock and the pipework should be positioned
so as not to prevent the refrigerator from being readily
withdrawn.
Before leaving, the installer should:
• Check all connections for gas leaks with soap and water.
DO NOT use a naked flame for detecting leaks!
• Ignite the burner to ensure correct operation of gas valve,
burner and ignition.
• Instruct the user on the correct method of operation. In case
the appliance fails to operate correctly after all checks have
been carried out, contact the authorised service provider in
your area.

Electrical connection
connection marked “Connect to Vehicle 12 Volt DC Battery”
This connection supplies the 12 V DC heating element.
The electrical installation must be carried out by authorised
personnel.
The (+12V) and (-) poles have to be connected directly to the
vehicle battery. (Via a suitable connection to the tow vehicle
when fitted to a caravan.)
Note! For mains voltage operation, it is important that
the circuit to and in the motorhome is effectively earthed.
The refrigerator is equipped with a three-prong (grounding)
plug for your protection against shock hazards and should be
plugged directly into a properly grounded threeprong receptacle. DO NOT cut off or remove the grounding prong from
this plug.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order
to avoid a hazard.
Do not use the chassis for the return lead.
This 12 volt DC vehicle battery terminal is supplied and fitted
with a 30 amp fuse situated at the rear of the refrigerator.
Cross-sections
The wires connected to this terminal must have the following
minimum cross section area:
• RM 2355, RM 2455, RM 2555
Maximum length of 8 metres from refrigerator to the battery.
6 mm2 cross-section low voltage multi strand cable.
230-240V supplies
Check that the voltage stated on the data plate is the same as
the main voltage in use (230-240V).
• RM 4605
Maximum length of 8 meters from refrigerator to the battery.
10 mm2 cross-section low voltage multi strand cable.
Note! Electrical leads must be routed and secured so that
they cannot come into contact with hot or sharp parts of
the refrigerator.
The free length of the cord is 1 m. It is
recommended that the receptacle is located
on the left side of the refrigerator (viewed
from the rear) and approximately 150 mm
from the floor. This allows easy access
through the vent door. The cord should
be routed to avoid direct contact with
the burner cover, flue cover or any other
components that could damage the cord
insulation.
Cable lengths longer than 8 meters will require larger crosssectional cable.
230-240V AC
receptacle
connection marked “Connect to permanent 12 volt DC
House Battery”.
This connection supplies the AES refrigerator control system
and must not be interrupted at any time whilst using the refrigerator on 240 volt, gas, and 12 volt. This is a permanent 12 volt
connection.
100150mm
The (+12V) and (-) poles have to be connected directly to the
permanent 12 V DC house battery.
Fig. 18
Do not use the chassis for the return lead.
The 12V supply must not be connected to a voltage controller
or similar device as the AES control system itself monitors the
DC voltage.
12V and “D+” Connection
The refrigerator is equipped with two terminals intended for
connection to 12 volt. One is marked “Connect to permanent
12 Volt DC house battery”and the other is marked “Connect to
Vehicle 12 Volt DC battery”, see Fig. 19
Connect to permanent
12 Volt DC house battery
The +12V must be permanently attached and must not be cut
out when the ignition key is turned off. All connections should
be screwed or soldered to keep voltage drop to a minimum.
Cross-sections
The wires connected to this terminal must have a minimum
cross-section area of 1.5 mm2.
Connect to Vehicle
12 Volt DC battery
D+ connection
The connection D+ (alternator) has to be connected to the corresponding outlet of the vehicles electrical system - either a
12 V or a 24V DC alternator. The D+ connection accepts
24 V. Please note that the refrigerator accepts 12 V only. Do not
connect the refrigerator to 24 V!
D+D+
This connection provides a signal to the refrigerators AES
control system informing the control system when the vehicle
engine is running.
Only 12V DC to the PC board.
Under no circumstances can
24V DC be connected to the
PC board.
D+ signal from either a
12V or a 24V DC alternator.
The AES refrigerator can not select 12 V as the energy source
unless the vehicle engine is running.
Fig. 19
Cross-sections
The D+ (alternator) is a signal cable and therefore 1-1.5 mm2 is
sufficient.
Note!
• For a Motor Home the house battery and the vehicle
battery may be the same battery.
• For a caravan the 12 volt connections can only be made
to separate batteries.
