Mine has performed great for over 4 years and we use it a lot.

This is my third RV with Norcold fridges in 10 years. My first RV developed a problem with it's control board after 1 year. That's the only problem I've had with them.

Makes perfect sense. I was thinking only of my own experience which is very limited. My stove at home requires only about 6 seconds before it senses the pilot flame but I've seen some that require much more time. Thanks for the reminder.

I know that on my furnace at home that I need to clean the tip of the thermo coupler with Emory cloth ever few years. Haven't looked at the TT fridge, but is there a similar probe that might need to be cleaned?

Hi, We picked up a 2016 Jayco 12H hard sided, but have not had a chance to take it out for a trial run before we go on a long trip. Besides the fridge, how has your experience been with the 12 H? Anything to watch out for?
Thanks

Pretty sure your cleaning your flame rod not the thermopile ( more then one thermocouple in one element) being it is your house furnace. The thermopile produces a mv signal by having two different metals heated up at there junction. Cleaning a thermopile will must likely not make a difference in performance. Having the tip(1/4" or so) of the thermopile in direct contact with the flame to produce the most volt. The hotter the Thermopile the more voltage it'll produce. This is why when lighting a pilot light on a stove or fireplace takes a little bit before you can release the button. You need to let the thermopile heat up to produce enough voltage to hold in the gas valve for the pilot flame

My old Norcold fridge would take forever (2 minutes) to purge it's leg of the gas line. Then after the burner lit, it would take 30-45 seconds for the thermocouple to show green at the front panel.

We went 13 years, two different JAYCO MH's with the only issue being a bad design on a door hinge that Norcold remedied. As to cooling, never had an issue and never had to replace a heating element. During the last 3 years that included usage of 3 months straight and several other 3-4 week trips each year.
