Refrigerator

I have a 6 ft. SD casita. Just about the time I run out of milk and eggs little spots of rust develop on the sack side and back bottom of the inside of frig. What is rusting and when will it be a big problem? Been running straight for five months.

Just cleaned it up yesterday. Surly you seen rust streaks before. Is it some mounting screw that's craping out. Have you experienced it or not?

Well, that response isn't going to get you far.

Hi, Craig! Since no Casita owners have jumped in with a simple "oh, yeah, I have that, too, and here's what caused it and here's the fix," it looks like it may be something unique to your situation.

That means we're going to need a little more information to help you. How long does it take to develop (in days, not eggs)? Do you only get the rust when the fridge is in use? What if you run the fridge with nothing in it? Do you store anything in tin cans? You have been full-timing for five months?

A picture showing exactly where the rust streaks appear would be really helpful. The thread "Forums 101" near the top of the News and Announcements section has directions for posting pictures (see post #7).

There are a lot of smart and experienced folks here, but they need more to go on. There are more Casita owners on the Casita forum. Have you tried there also?

My first thought- could it be the wire shelves? Perhaps the plastic coating is damaged or defective.

Best wishes figuring this out!

Going to answer. Waiting for rust to appear again. Takes about a week. Will send pictures then. Thanks for your response. I guess I was a little rude at first. Sorry

It's the 1000 word thing with a pic . Just a funny example. About two years ago a fairly new member wanted info for a hatch door repair. He got a lot of responses for what we all took, by his description, to be the refer vent hatch. Someone finally ask for a pic......turned out to be an old school storage door, he fooled us. But he got the right answer after the pic .

Craig,
Sometimes cleaning a thing can be a bad thing if your not using the right thing.
Prior to our PL we had a pop up camper with stainless steel racks in the fridge. At the beginning of one season I gave them a "good" scrubbing. Looked good as new until I saw them five or six days later.
I'm not saying this is your issue but this is what I ran into. This short article says it better than I. How to Clean Rust on Stainless Steel Appliance
Good luck
Sid
