A little about the Smart RV Products family -Smart RV Products is a family owned business that takes pride in being able to help RV’ers enjoy their lifestyle to the fullest.
OUR HISTORY SmartRVproducts.com was started by the Bakker family in 2010. Over the last 35 years, we have owned RV’s in one form or another, and we know the enjoyment that can be had in an RV. Like others, we did not enjoy the task of defrosting our RV refrigerators. After trying numerous products, and being disappointed with all of them, we set off to fix the defrosting problem ourselves.
In the Summer of 2009, we began experimenting with different designs to improve our rv refrigerator performance. After 12 months of trial and error (and considerable expense), consultation with experts in electrical engineering, refrigeration, and plastics, we finally had a device that guaranteed that we wouldn’t have to defrost our refrigerator ever again!After having put so much time and effort into our project, we built a few for our RV’ing friends and family members. When word started to spread about the “Fridge-Fix,” we began to build more and more. Eventually, we made the decision to offer the “Fridge-Fix” to the public.We build the Fridge-Fix right here in the U.S. of A.
We build every one of these units ourselves, and hope that they help improve the RV’ing experience for our fellow RV’ers. We are not a large company cranking our product out by the million in China, we are a small, family run company that takes pride in building a great product. We post our testimonials online because we are proud of the fact that we take care of our customers, and that sets us apart from our competition. We would like to say THANK YOU to each and every one of our customers. We appreciate your business!If you have questions, comments, or just want to shoot the breeze, drop us an email at info@SmartRVProducts.com
