Dometic debuts CR Series refrigerators/freezers


Dometic Automotive says its CR Series of premium refrigerators/freezers for truck sleepers is available in four sizes from 1.7 to 3.8 cubic feet and incorporates a double-lock door mechanism designed to ensure the door stays tightly shut during rough road conditions. When set in the “vent” position, the refrigerator door is held open slightly for easy defrosting and mildew prevention, according to the company.

The CR Series units have an internal full-width freezer compartment with a separate door, as well as a bottle holder, extra-large vegetable bin and adjustable shelves and racks, with a cool-blue interior light. For added installation flexibility in restricted spaces, the door can be configured for right- or left-hand opening, according to the company, and the door face panel is interchangeable on most models for black or stainless-steel outside finish.

The CR Series refrigerators are powered by a hermetic Danfoss BD35F 12V DC compressor designed to provide superior cooling performance, ultra-quiet running and minimal power consumption. Dometic says all CF units use environmentally friendly R134 refrigerant gas. Designed to meet the toughest over-the-road conditions, the CR units are built with stainless-steel fittings, coated metal frame, CFC-free polyurethane insulation and heavy-duty plastic interior lining.
