DOMETIC GAS REFRIGERATORS DESCRIPTION
Remote location? No problem! The Dometic is perfect for campgrounds, lodges, cabins, and remote houses or cottages. Rugged and reliable. Some have been in continuous use over 50 years.

No wear and tear-The continuous absorption-type cooling unit is powered by the small amount of heat produced by the gas or kerosene burner. The liquid circulation of the unit is purely gravitational. There are no moving parts to wear out.

How it works-Heat makes cold through the natural cooling power of evaporation. An ammonia mixture permanently sealed inside the service-free cooling unit is heated and generates a never-ending cycle of evaporation and condensation.

Constant cooling-Conventional refrigerator compressors lower temperature then wait until interior warms up before starting again. The Dometic maintains a constant cooling temperature – the flame never goes out.

Totally silent-Those with access to electricity often purchase our Dometic refrigerators because they don’t want to listen to a noisy compressor. They also see a significant reduction in their electric bill. Fewer storage cells will be needed for your solar or wind-powered electric system.

Electric option-Plug in your Dometic for backup power or full time use. A heating element simply replaces the flame – still no compressor to go bad. One thermostat controls either gas or electric. Just turn a knob to switch from one fuel to the other.

The ultimate test-Even on the hottest days, a Dometic will keep your ice cream frozen solid. Ice cream requires colder temperatures than almost any other frozen food. The Dometic works so well freezer temperatures stay below 0º F even in 100º F heat! Double up for extra size-It’s hard to make an extra-large absorption-type refrigerator. As a result, really large gas refrigerators don’t work very well. If you need more space, we recommend putting two 8 cu ft Dometics side-by-side. The reversible doors allow you to create your own 16 cu ft double door refrigerator.

Easy to use and install -No vent needed. Light and control unit from front. Gas models take standard 3⁄8" female flared copper tubing connector.

Famous European craftsmanship- The Swedish company Electrolux AB, a pioneer in gas refrigeration, manufactures our Dometic products. Their constant innovation makes them the undisputed world leader in gas refrigeration. CSA approved. 1-year warranty.

All RGE400s have an interior light which requires 4 D batteries (not included).

Reversible doors, extra insulation, exterior drain, adjustable and removable shelves, interior light (battery operated), contemporary design. Free electric back-up power. Dual electric and gas thermostats ensure efficient operation with either fuel. Smooth, molded steel cabinet with rust-proof enameled finish and designer beveled edges. Easy non-electric push-button lighting. (No matches needed!) No corners to trap dirt and bacteria. Safety shut-off and CSA approval, of course.

"I bought the Dometic RGE400x over 4 years ago and it is working great. I use it in rural Africa and run it on butane (using the optional butane orifice) since we only have solar power. We use it during trips to a remote village that last about 6-8 weeks. Then, we turn it off, leave for a few weeks and when we come back, it just fires up again after a few clicks of the igniter. The fridge is not huge but you quickly get accustomed to the size and realize that you probably used to keep too much in your fridge for far too long. We can usually store 8 weeks of frozen meet for a family of five in the freezer so it's pretty good. The condensation tray is too small for us but we live 2 degrees above the equator at sea level so the humidity is extreme. This is easily solved by slipping the hose into an empty water bottle that I empty once a week. We received great customer service and delivery from Lehman's. I often say that next to my 4x4, my fridge is the most important thing I own."

"This refrigerator came fast and in great condition. I am off-grid,but with some gasoline generation and solar. I got the LP/electric for diversity in this political economic climate, where few things are dependable. I plugged it in with electricity at first and it was simply wonderful. I cannot imagine why I ever used anything purely electric. The LP people changed it only yesterday to propane, and without any smell or drop in temperature. It is the most wonderful appliance I have in my kitchen. I will never go back to the "old" ways. It is easy to keep clean and has plenty of space. I am a chef and it works for me. All the space I have ever really needed."

"I purchased this Dometic LP gas fridge to replace a 25 year old Servel. The Dometic arrived in perfect condition. It is almost exactly like my old Servel. It is a small but very effective refrigerator/freezer. It works perfectly, as did my old Servel. There are a couple of very minor things that may be a problem for some people: one is that that battery compartment for the interior light is in the back of the unit, so you have to move the fridge to change the batteries. The other issue is that the condensation tray is on the back of the unit and is very small. I will be curious to see if it overflows in hot humid weather. My Servel had the condensation tray inside the refrigerator, which I did not like because it often overflowed into the veggie drawers. So maybe having the condensation tray on the back is better, but I still suspect it is too small. There are improvements over the old Servel. In particular the freezer seems to have more room, and the fridge door will hold a half gallon size milk bottle. So nice! I like the fridge and am also very happy with Lehmans--they helped me make an appropriate selection, and arranged shipping to my door. THANK YOU! Bottom line, the Dometic is well built, seems reliable and is also a very attractive refrigerator."
