Dometic RMD 10X & 10XL Overview

The new Dometic series of RV refrigerator breaks with their traditional model number scheme. For example, the excellent RM series of fridge made for 30 years told you the refrigerator capacity in cubic feet (cuft) in the model number. Dometic's 10 series is not a 10 cubic foot fridge, they are 5.4 and 6.3 cubic feet respectively.
