Problem removing heat exchanger
Boy what fun! A month ago the dealer diagnosed a plugged heat exchanger under the fridge. They bypassed it so at least the front heat exchanger in the dash would work. Last night I started removing the heat exchanger. You know the panel that holds the On/Off switch for the propane below the fridge. I removed that pretty easily. I then struggled and finally got the heat exchanger all disconnected and ready to pull it out. Guess what, the opening is too small to allow the heat exchanger out. I have had to trim 1/4 inch off the bottom of the opening (down to the same level as the inner piece of wood) I still have to trim a little more off to allow the heat exchanger to slide through the opening. I'm only trimming a wide enough area to allow the exchanger to slip through sideways.
This was a terrible planning job by the designers. It would have been so easy to make the opening large enough when it was first made to allow this heat exchanger to slip out easily. The panel that covers the opening is plenty big enough to cover a larger opening. This was an awful design issue. Come on CC, you can definitely do better.
