The Secret is inside

Secret is inside

ATCO cooling units are galvanized and that means no rust. No one else offers galvanizing, so no one else offers our level of rust protection.

“ATCO America is our primary supplier of cooling units because of their high-quality products and simple, honest way of doing business. Their helpful staff is always willing to help us satisfy our customers’ needs.”

– Shawn Hubbell, Guaranty RV

Galvanized RV Cooling Units – A Unique Approach to Beating Rust

By far the most common cause of failure of Dometic and Norcold RV refrigerator cooling units is rusted tubes within the foam block. At ATCO we’ve built our business by improving the product rather than just replacing it. With our unique remanufacturing process, we bond tubes with pure zinc in a galvanizing process to provide unparalleled rust protection and a longer useful life. There is no better way to repair your RV refrigerator.

Committed to a Better, Longer Lasting Replacement RV Cooling Unit

Chuck Crowe

We started out in 1990 to find a better way to provide long-lasting replacement cooling units for Dometic and Norcold RV refrigerators. After much experimentation, we realized there is only one real answer to preventing rust in tube sets: galvanizing. We perfected our process of applying 99-percent-plus pure zinc to tubing, and 50,000 units later our solution has been proved in the field. No other remanufacturer (or manufacturer, for that matter) uses galvanizing. Rust is a big reason why original cooling units fail—and why ATCO America Galvanized replacement units outlast original equipment. Galvanizing isn’t easy. It takes skill and commitment, but it’s worth it to provide you and your customers with the highest-quality product.

Throughout our growth, we’ve maintained our personal commitment to customer service and product quality. We take great pride in our high customer satisfaction levels and extremely low warranty-return rate. For us, it’s about business done right, and that means:
