Dometric RM 2453 Problem Joan 6-20-15  
The Dometric Americana RM 2453 in our camper we just bought works on gas but not on electric. What could be the problem. Battery checked out okay and electrical outlet works ok. At a loss. Please help.

Hi Joan, could be the 5 amp fuse on the circuit board is blown, the 120V AC heating element is burned out, or a bad circuit board. The first two are the most likely. If the fuse is OK, the heating element is located on the flue above the burner, about half way up you'll see a round tube like sticking out with two wires going to it. If you're handy follow those wires to the circuit board and check for 120V there. Or unplug the fridge remove those wires from the board and ohm them with one lead on each wire. You should have 44 ohms + - 10%. If you're unsure of the procedures, call an RV tech for safety sake. Good luck

Hi again Joan, correction: if this is an RM 2453 it is 80 ohms resistance + - 10% for the 120V heater element. Sorry, it's late, I'm old.... Good luck
