The bottom rack  holds 2-liter bottles.  Patented "fingers" hold bottles of any size in place, yet allow easy removal.  The base-mounted control panel houses the gas/electric selector, temperature control, piezo ignitor, and flame safety valve.  Just set the desired cooling level, and the combined electric and gas thermostat maintains it.

Dometic 400 Series (formerly called Servel)

Fully independent refrigerator-freezers; available in LP or natural gas or kerosene operation, these high quality appliances require no electricity---ideal for use in remote cabin or cottage, on the farm or ranch, or for  emergency back-up situations.  The absorption-type cooling system is quiet and dependable, with no compressor or other moving parts to wear out.  Choose bisque or white exterior finish with designer bevel edges.  The easy-to-clean all-white interior features adjustable, removable shelves and door bins for stocking flexibility, plus two vegetable crispers and a battery powered interior light.

The freezer compartment has a three-position adjustable shelf.  Both doors have easy-to-use handles.  Covered exterior controls include manual ignition, thermostat and fuel selector.  All models can be operated on AC electricity if desired, but are not energy efficient operated in this fashion (using almost 4000 watt-hours per day).

Kerosene units require much higher maintenance (owing to the fact that kerosene is a less clean fuel).  It is highly suggested that you also order the "3 Year Spare Parts Kits" for $195, which includes 12 wicks, wick raiser, flame spreader, wick cleaner, and a spare glass chimney.  KEROSENE UNITS ONLY!  The LP units require significantly less maintenance.

Kerosene refrigerators require weekly  wick and mantle adjustment.

They also require regular cleaning due to soot build-up in the exhaust flue.

With all the same features and capacity as the gas model, the RK 400 uses a small wick-type kerosene burner as the heat source to operate the absorption cooling system.  Front openings provide ventilation, view of the fuel level pin, and allow easy adjustment of the kerosene wick and electric thermostat.

Capacity of the Dometic RGE 400:  8 cu. ft. total capacity (6 cu. ft. 'fridge, 2 cu. ft. freezer)

WHAT TRUCK FREIGHT ENTAILS
:   The best rate for truck freight shipping is to have you pick it up at the local freight terminal or commercial drop point.  A residential delivery is usually $40 to $45 more than a business delivery, and, a lift gate (which drops the goods off at ground level), is another $80 to $100 in additional fees.  Inside delivery is an additional cost on top of that.

Know someone with a truck? Can you have a dolly or hand cart on hand?  If you can mobilize a couple of strong bodies, you might be able to save $80 to $120 or so!

Call for your freight on any of our truck freight items.
 

NOTE ABOUT RECEIVING TRUCK FREIGHT ITEMS:  Do not sign for anything until you have inspected your unit. You have spent good money on this, and it was shipped in good condition.  If you don't inspect it, and open the unit at home and find 'hidden damage', there is no recourse for a truck freight claim. All claims for damage MUST be made at the time of receipt of the unit!  Note any damage on the bill of lading before signing off--it's a relatively easy process to get a new unit or replacement parts if you do so.  But not if you don't inspect it!  Also, don't refuse an obviously damaged unit.  You will still be charged for it, as we will also be by our suppliers.  Freight damage is very rare (FORTUNATELY!), but proper documentation and reporting of any damage will expedite the claims process.
