Dometic’s RMD 8555 Refrigerator Increases Volume and Accessibility, Decreases Weight

ELKHART, Ind. – Dometic Group, a global provider of cooling and convenience products for the recreation vehicle, truck, automotive and marine markets, will show the RMD 8555 two-door absorption refrigerator during the RVIA National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Dec. 2-4, 2014.

The 6.71-cu.ft. RMD 8555 creates a high-end look with matte silver décor panels and cool blue interior LED lights that illuminate removable, dishwasher-safe, flexible-arrangement shelves with a new anti-slip, easy-clean surface. But the deepest value, according to RV OEM Sales & Marketing VP Dave Schutz, is what you don’t see.

“The RMD 8555 features 5% less weight, up to 8% more volume and an increased tilt angle from the standard four degrees to six,” Schutz explained. “Anyone can make a refrigerator that’s nice to look at, but at Dometic, we examine every element and function from skin to bones.”

That includes the RMD 8555’s increased accessibility – its unique handle allows users to open or close the refrigerator with a single fingertip – and increased security, with snap-in magnetic door-locking seals and an audible alert that sounds when the door isn’t entirely closed.

This model also contains Dometic’s bedrock refrigerator functions of 3-way operation (115V AC, 12V DC, and LP gas) with low consumption and silent operation, as well as the Automatic Energy Selection (AES) system that automatically chooses the most appropriate energy source for worry-free cooling, which was invented by Dometic in 1982.

“We’re continually combining new & innovative with tried & true,” said Schutz. “This refrigerator manifests Dometic’s century-long history of RV-industry engineering as well as our understanding of what pleases the RVers of today and tomorrow.”
