My current bad luck streak continues as my Dometic/Waeco cooler/ freezer gave up the ghost one month out of warrentee. They can't be repaired and have to be replaced when the compressor fails so there goes $600. Dometic was not interested in helping out.
I've been researching the replacement options and reading posts here and I thought I'd pass on a tidbit I discovered that contradicts one of the posted thoughts and may be helpful to someone else looking for one.
The Dometic/Waeco coolfreeze and the ARB coolers have Danfloss Compressors. The Engle has a totally different so called one moving part compressor that has been used successfully for many years. I had a Engle for over 15 yrs. some time ago. Wish I hadn't given it away. Best
PS: I have another new small Dometic and a new ARB in my trailer.
