I only had to make a half dozen phone calls to technicians and repair shops in the US to confirm what the Mexican refrigerator repair man standing in front of me had just said. It’s broken. In a way that cannot be fixed.
Option #1 – Pay $1500 to have a compatible model shipped down from the US. Hope the Mexican repair man can install it. Turn time 3-4 weeks, (depending on customs. yeah, right).
Option #2 – Drive to Mexico City and try to find an RV shop that sells a Mexican fridge in the dimensions that fits into our fridge spot in the van. Then hope they have the skills to convert our van’s system to the Mexican refrigerator’s which will be different. Turn time 1-2 weeks
Option #3 – Continue, without a refrigerator, down the road toward the equator where it’s really frikin hot. Turn time, 1 day
Option #4 – Get drunk on Mezcal and worry about it later. Turn time, 5 minutes ago
