It's been my experience that when I need something like a part for my trailer, I have options as to where I can purchase that part and thus where it was made. Some manufacturers have better quality control than others.
I bought my trailer new. About two years later the fridge
died. It seems other owners of similar units had the same problem, caused by faulty mother boards. These off shore produced mother boards delaminated during use and failed. The dealership offered me a replacement part which was identical to the one that failed. Not wanting to be in another situation where I had to forego another camping trip because I had no fridge
, I decided to look for an alternate replacement product. I bough one manufactured in the US. It's been going strong for many years.
When the US manufacturer learned of my situation, he beat the off shore price. He gave me a quality product at a better price. I get quality products and the manufacturer gets ALL my future business and recommendations from me to other consumers to do the same.
A lower initial purchase price isn't a bargain if it doesn't work or has to be replaced frequently. You get what you pay for and the choice is yours.
