Having a problem with our dometic fridge on 240v power with the alarm going off as if there is no power getting to it. It was working fine for a couple of weeks but has started with the alarm in the early evening and again in the morning. Have checked fuses, power supply and the trip switch and all are fine, has anyone experienced something similar?

We have just taken delivery of the Habitat 1 (amazing vehicle) and have discovered that when we run the fridge on inverter overnight it uses somewhere in the vicinity of 7-10% battery power. Having only used 12v for the first few days it was consuming 40-48% overnight. Is there any reason we shouldn't use the inverter as such, or if not, why wouldn't we have been advised to do so?

I read in "Community" there have been several complaints back in 2016 regarding Rattles in the slideout when travelling. The problem is still there in 2017 and despite your Answer saying your service agents are experts in coming up with solutions it seems in this case they haven't. It seems unrealistic that the only suggestion was to put a piece of foam in it to stop the rattle.
Hello Brian, We appreciate that rattles can be annoying. It is important to understand that motorh...
