    Following on from my earlier post it seems that the problem with my fridge is the 240v heater element. It is a Dometic R 7361 L fitted in a Bessacarr e425. Has anyone any experience of replacing one??? Is this a DIY job or best left to a pro??? Any info would be gratefully received. Thanks Mike

    The only one I replaced, was in/on an American R-V. and that was accessible from outside via a quite large opening, (aprox 18x12"). I would suggest that unless you can actually SEE the element and it`s Connections via a removed Vent cover. The frig will have to be removed into the body of the M-H and then dismantled?.

    It's an easy job - just note how the old one is fitted / connected. Manuals are available on the Dometic website. There might even be a YouTube video.:)
