Ammonia Smell from Refrigerator 
While cleaning our MH, I noticed that there was this smell like ammonia inside. We eventually found that it was coming from our refrigerator. This is the first time that this happened. What could be causing this and how do we get to fix this?

Re: Ammonia Smell from Refrigerator 
Most likely cause of that is that there is a leak in your refrigerator's cooling unit. Unfortunately, the only way that you can get that fixed is to have it replaced. Since it can be quite expensive, I'd suggest to go and do some checking to see how far is the difference between the price of getting the cooling unit replaced and buying a new refrigerator altogether. If the price difference is not that far, I'd strongly suggest to get a new ref.

You're cooling unit has finally given up and it's time to be replaced.

Re: Ammonia Smell from Refrigerator 
I agree with everyone else. The ammonia smell is because of your cooling unit failing. Practicality wise, it would just be best to buy a new refrigerator. I did a bit of searching online, and the price of a brand new cooling unit is just about the same price as a brand new refrigerator. Not to mention that you will still have to hire an electrician to install it to make sure that it works properly.

I agree with mike. Not only is getting a new refrigerator going to come out cheaper. It's definitely going to be more reliable. The last thing that you'd want is it conking up on you while you're in the middle of your camping trip.
