What Is RV Refrigeration?
RV refrigeration is absorption refrigeration. In other words, refrigeration is created without the use of a compressor. On the backside of the refrigerator cabinet is a steel cooling unit that houses chemicals. These chemicals are heated by way of electricity or LP which causes the chemicals to circulate. This creates the required cooling for the refrigerator and freezer compartment.
What Will I Learn In This Training?
The most common repair for the RV refrigeration cooling unit is that this steel cooling unit develops a small leak that simply needs to be welded closed. At FRVRTC we train you how to diagnose these RV refrigerators, do required repairs, and recharge the cooling unit system. Since we have specialized in the refrigeration field since 1978, we have a very high success rate on the repair and recharging procedures and have not had any warranty issues for many years.
