We have the RMD8555, two-door, and no problems as I have mentioned on the Escape
forum many times. Mary, you said you were in high altitude areas where it is not supposed to work, however, others reported that theirs did work in that case (but maybe not always as high as you were, although I think Alan or someone was).
We were in Texas, Mary! While you were somewhere else. At 95F and even 100F, the refrigerator
, a 6.7, worked. Opening the door a number of times, however, causes the temperature to go right up. Have to limit that as much as possible.
Since it was so hot, I used a big container full of water to have cold water. I would put it in the refrigerator
in the morning and presumably it would become cold before afternoon temps hit. Perhaps that helped to keep it cold in there. Obviously, the temps would not be as low if the refrigerator
side were in the sun, and/or the outside temp was above 95F, but would go to 35F or 32. (Often goes to 28F in cooler outside temps).
We had a new fan that we never took out of the package for inside the refrigerator and we never changed or moved any refrigerator parts. Others have reported similar with this refrigerator. Some have had problems where it was obviously just not working but they sometimes are referring to gas. We were plugged in, if that makes a difference.
I could not be happier with this refrigerator because I thought that the specs were that it would only work to 90F.
