    Fridge condemned

    Just had the gaz side of the fridge in a 1994 HyLo condemned. Corroded flexible hose and corroded flue. Niether item leaking - yet, but deemed to be unservicable. Fridge (Electrolux RM123E) still fine on 12/240 electric.

    Have to decide to stick with it as it is or find a replacement

    I think both of those items can be ordered and replaced by a gas fitter. Just a matter of finding the parts and fitting them and testing. Try the Dometic site on the web for the flue, a local gas/caravan supplier for the hose and don't write it off just yet!

      Thanks for the information JayJay, however, the visual state of the 'flame box' and other related parts would suggest that one would be spending out on more that just the flue and pipe once the fridge was stripped down - not the £350+ for a new fridge but still lots of pennies.
      As we don't plan on going anywhere really hot - we're UK campers - we'll get by on leisure battery and mains (if we stay somewhere posh)

        Hi again, Rob. You will only be able to use EHu for you fridge if not on the road and moving, that's all the 12v part of the fridge is for.

        Your fridge won't work on 12v whilst on a site, it will run a leisure battery down within hours and wont be very effective anyway.

        You can get coolboxes that you fill with ice cubes in a layer underneath a bottom shelf (I can't remember what they are called but they are good for approx 5 days or more.

        The only other alternative is to buy a little second user camping fridge off Ebay or the like, or from a breakers.

        For example, like this one here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electrolux...item25664ee7ae
