Norcold?

OK so we're joining the Jayco owners officially very soon... About the only thing in there I'm not comfortable (familiar) with is the Norcold brand of fridge. So, what can you tell me about them... good or bad? We're looking hard at the 28dsbh, 28bhks, and the 32dsbh. I think the 2 dsbh models come with an 8-cubic-foot model and the bhks still uses a 6-cubic-foot fridge.

We're looking forward to our new trailer...... (not really, because I know there'll be a lot of little stuff to fix for a couple of years.)

Congrats on your new trailer! We have a Norcold fridge in our 2014 27 DSRL. This is our third year camping and the fridge has worked flawlessly. We keep the temperature setting on 3 and have had no issues. Enjoy.

We also have used our Norcold for 5+ years and are very happy with it. No problems.

In the past I have always had Dometics and had no problems with them either.

Our 8' Norcold has gotten us through four winters of full timing and over five years in total. Used it for the first time this year a week ago and it was just fine. We probably have over 12,000 miles on the TT and run the fridge on Propane while on the road, then ac when hooked up at a camp ground.

I on the other hand have had several issues with mine... Some caused by ME, some not. All I'll say is that if you have any questions or need to replace something you should start by going to the company I did (The Norcold Guy). Very knowledgeable and affordable. If it ever has to be serviced, call Norcold Guy before spending $100's at a service center. You'll be happy you did like I was. Enjoy the fridge and enjoy your new RV!

Thanks for the replies. I'm not big on dealerships and their "techs". I really appreciate the link to the Norcold guy. I usually find it much easier to fix things than to be without the trailer while the stealership is "waiting for parts", that seem to never come. This will be our 3rd TT and I've never taken one back to the dealer... and probably won't.

Honestly most everyone I've known with a trailer has had a Norcold fridge. No issues.

Just make sure if your fridge is in a slide out, that the fan runs when it's warm. They left ours out of our Open Range and it couldn't cool when it was above 60.
Normally they would vent out of the roof, but with a slide it vents out the side (you will see 2 rectangular panels instead of one on exterior)
They ended up replacing the entire unit and now I can hear the fan run when it's warm outside and it cools great.
