The last time I looked at a brand new Scamp
up close was at the 2013 MN State Fair. Back then I noticed they had changed their fridge
venting to a roof mounted vent. I found a stock photo on their site showing that same roof vent. While browsing their photos I noticed that the fridge
venting seems to have gone back to two vent panels on the curb side wall (first image). Of course I'm assuming their photos show most current options.
Does anyone have any insight to these venting changes? I suspect Scamp
has changed Dometic fridge
models and venting requirements have also changed. I'm curious because I'm considering replacing the fridge (my old RM2202 bit the dust a few years ago) in my 1998 16' which is vented like the second image (no roof vent) and am wondering if my vents would work with Scamp's current fridge options offered in their parts store. I see they currently offer a RM2193 (that replaces my RM2202) and a larger RM2410 that may be the one that seems to take up about 3-4" of aisle space (3rd image). Maybe the bigger fridge requires the roof vent?
I realize I can call and ask Scamp
but I've found that more information I can get from folks here can help me ask informed questions from Scamp parts people.
I should mention that besides the 3-way fridge option, I'm also considering going with a 12v fridge. I've started looking at various models mentioned on other threads. I currently have a portable unattached 75w solar panel
that I use to periodically recharge with. I've thought I'd probably need to upgrade to some permanently attached roof mount solar
setup to keep the 12V fridge running. Any advice on 12v vs 3-way fridges is also appreciated. I read somewhere that one consideration is that propane
is silent while the 12v fridge makes some noise. I'd assume it'd be like sleeping in my kitchen at home.
