Dometic RM8551 Caravan Fridge

Modern absorption fridge for use in motorhomes and caravans

Dometic 8 Series RM8551 caravan fridge

Easy to use, stylish and ultra-efficient. The Dometic RM8551 fridge sets new standards for absorption refrigerators. Innovative designs and colourful accents transform the high-quality appliances into stylish design pieces. On the outside, décor panels help them blend in with furniture while the inside is illuminated with energy efficient LED lights that radiate a pleasant cool blue light. A host of user friendly features add the finishing touch. The Dometic RM8551 fridge is available with the MES system (Manual Energy Selector) which has an electronic reigniter, which registers a dying flame and reignites it. Simply turn the controls to select the energy source manually, thermostatic control for all energy sources. The 8-Series models consume up to 15% less 12 V energy when operating on gas.
