Dometic DMC4101: Not Your Parents’ RV Fridge

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

The DMC4101, Dometic’s much-heralded 12-volt DC compressor-style refrigerator, is an exact-fit replacement for the 8-cubic-foot Dometic Americana absorption refrigerators found in many RVs, yet it holds 2 cubic feet more. The sleek, stainless-steel fridge runs off a Dometic-built variable-speed electric compressor that’s digitally controlled. According to the company, the new compressor design not only increases energy efficiency, it runs quieter than traditional RV refrigerators.
