A quick heads-up GORVers....
we finally broke down this summer and splurged on a REALLY NICE BIG FRIDGE for our tired little Winnie.
(We're full-timers so we needed the biggest fridge we could find)
as luck would have it, while traveling through Salem Oregon area we found someone who had a BIG double-door (side by side) Dometic Elite he was selling for about 1/5th of retail (these are about $2500 on average)
through a lot of grief we got it installed (it was SO big it wouldn't FIT THROUGH THE DOOR)
now, 6 months later, we're pulling through LA and one of the doors FALLS OFF!!! The hinge just SNAPPED!!
Further examination proved that it was a TERRIBLE weak point.
A quick web search reveals that DOMETIC DOES NOT WARRANTY OR OFFER ANY FIX FOR THIS!!!
Dometic's solution - YOU HAVE TO BUY ALL NEW DOORS!!! I found this APPALLING....
I did find on this blog (http://www.rv-partsplus.com/dometic-refrigerator-door-hinge-repair-...) that someone offers an after-market fix.... I'm applying MASSIVE and liberal amounts of plastic epoxy and see it that works......................
just and FYI for y'alls...................
