I love my Newmar coach, but I would never again purchase any coach with a Norcold product in it. (And I've bought 3 new DP's in the last 8 years). Just like in politics, the best way to vote is with your $$$$.

Still waiting on Norcold to fix my upgrade (3rd Time)- - I guess if they wait long enough, we'll run out of fossil fuels and I won't need to get it "Upgraded".

Guess I'll look for some blocks of ice.

We have a NDR 1292, does that fall under the 1200 group, or do they put the actual numbers in there? Thanks!

We got the upgrade done a few months ago, but now notice that it dosen't seem
to get as cold.
Has anyone else noticed this?

The last recall from Norcold does not have anything to do as to how good your refrigerator cools. All it is is a heat sensor that will turn your refrigerator off if the pipes get too hot to prevent a fire.

Ain't an upgrade. It is a recall to stop the refrigerator from getting so hot it catches on fire. The so called upgrade blew out my coils. Can't call it an upgrade, it is a measure to prevent fires. Period.

Of course, since the refrigerator doesn't get so hot, maybe it ain't cooling as good.

I also now see a little red light glowing on a little black box behind
the access door.

trickyvic3...your refrigerator isn't working. The Chinese sensor is bad, the refrigerator is shut down. It can't be reset, it needs to be replaced. Pray it isn't the coils blown. Mine were. If your refrigerator is out of warranty Norcold has no liability. If the coils are bad don't throw the refrigerator away and buy a new one, buy new coils. The Amish coils are heavier and no recall needed. Mine work better than new.

Just a note. I ended up putting two squirrel cage fans behind the refer. It is cooling lots better in fact I had to turn the numbers down two numbers. I ammed the output of the fans up and a total of 60 cfm. Sure works well for me
