Residential Fridge

Anyone install a residential fridge in a 5342 where the furnace is under the Norcold?
If so, what brand and model?
What did you have to do to get it to fit?
Thanks
Pete

I installed a Sears Kenmore model 70304, 15 cu, ft. in my Dolphin. I lowered the floor under the fridge 6 inches so my wife could see in the freezer.
To get it in our coach I had to remove the door and frame and take the doors off of the fridge.
Very satisfied with the installation and we now can keep ice cream.
I took out a Dometic side by side.

First and foremost GO BUCKEYES!!
Second thaks for answering the post. Do you happen to have any pics? How did you lower the floor under the fridge? Is there that much room above the furnace? Did you have to change your inverter? Did you connect it to the batteries?
Thanks Again
Pete

Converter Inveter

Currently I Have a Converter which I believe is a Parralux7455. The converter is connected to the inveter I think. When I install the new fridge do I just replace the inverter or do both need to be replaced?
