Travellers with selected RUA6 and RUA8 absorption fridges–sold in vans between July 2018-December 2020–must cease using the Auto and 12V battery settings and arrange a warranty repair says Dometic. 

Dometic initiated the recall following concerns the 12V wiring loom may overheat and char risking a fire if placed near combustible material.

You’ll find these numbers on the rating label on the left-hand wall of the fridge.
