Hmmm, first time I have heard that one, who told you it needs to be changed?


With as much stuff to service on an RV, I doubt if even true, that anyone has changed out a fuse every year, sounds like non sense to me.

seems odd but if it only blows once a year not a big deal maybe weak circuit board or?

Fuse

I should have said why does the fuse blow at least once during the travel season. We spend 4 months in the south for the winter.

Your problem could lead to a more serious issue. Norcold had a recall some years ago because their units were overheating, leaking cooling fluid and causing fires. Their fix was to install a Thermistor in the power line. You can probably find more info on this at the Norcold website or a google search. There is a class action law suit that they just lost but the time to get in on it has past. I would suggest that you look into your problem deeper and maybe have a technician check out your Norcold frig for the afore mentioned problem.

The NORCOLD recall or overheating has nothing at all to do with blowing fuses.
OP: have you measured the current draw of the fridge.

We need more info about your fuse problem. What exactly is going on when this happens, you know what I mean. Was the generator running, had you just switched over to shore power or generator power. Had yo just turned it on for the beginning of the season. Had you just loaded it up with food. Was it just switched over from gas to electric.

These things need to be know to help you better answer the question. Getting this info will also help you better understand what is going on with the system.
