I have been looking for someone who installed a residential refrigerator in a Bounder, specifically a 35 E. One of the members from another forum has done it. Here is a video of the install.
Here is a link to the unit that was installed.

Whirlpool GB9FHDXWS 18.5 cu. ft. Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator with 5 Spillproof Glass Shelves, Reversible Door Swing, Clear Humidity-Controlled Crisper, Slide-Out Freezer Drawer and Factory Installed Automatic Ice Maker: Stainless Steel


Installing a residential refrigerator into a 2010 Bounder 35E Motorhome - YouTube.

On edit. The refrigerator link I posted above is not the one in the video. It is one I saw in an Allegro the other day that I liked.

The unit in the video is a 21.7 cf Whirlpool.

Interesting that they did all that customization and woodwork without eye protection.

I'd love to replace our Nocold (spelling error intended) with a safer fridge. We've had the recalls done, but I still feel it's an accident waiting to happen. I've got a source that'll do it, but next year is our year for tires so I don't think we'll have the $$ to do both (even with the Michelin FMCA deal). Rolling down the road safety trumps the fridge when I can do without the fridge on a trip if we had to.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I don't believe he put any in. I know for me , I'm never far from a plug. You can run for a few hours and it will not lose much as far as temps go. You can also run your genny. I don't even have an inverter. It's not for everyone but will work for me.

Great point! I had mistakenly assumed you HAD to have extra batteries to run it.

Thanks for the post Cliff. I'm thinking of doing this in the fall or spring next year.

Last fall I replaced my Dometic NDA1402 with a Samsung RF217 in my slide. Width was the same and all I had to do was remove a drawer below to get the additional height. Best modification I've ever made. Since the new refer only uses 400 watts max, I did not have to add batteries or change any electrical. The new unit is actually 70 lbs lighter empty, but it'll probably be a wash as the DW will most likely put more food/drink into it.

Thanks for the info. I don't have room for the Samsung but I have a Summit 60 inch tall refrig/freezer on order to replace my leaking Dometic.
