Would a cheaper solution to ARP be to install a Bimetal disc thermostat that shuts off at 200F and closes at 180F? These limit switches are used as a safety device in gas fired furnaces and cost less than $5.00. I am sure the ARP does more, but just wondering what others think.


The average flue temp is around 275 to 350 degrees. Doug

The Norcold recall trips at 700 degrees.
I was using the temps that Otrfun posted, where he posted that normal temps were between 180-190F and ARP shuts down at 217F. What ever the correct temps maybe my question is wouldn't a cheaper solution to the ARP be a Bimetal disc thermostat?

The temp I posted is the Temp of the STEEL flue tube itself, not the outside of the Insulated jacket cover. The Norcold Recall sensor is secured to the inside steel of the flue tube. Your temps would be correct for the outside cover. Doug
