Residential refrig replacement

Quick question. I've read a lot on the residential refer replacement. I'm not sure mine will take one. 1999 intrigue? Looking at the cabinet, it appears that I have above space to the roof deck, however below my current RV refer there is a air plentum with duct work (heater?) even fudging a bit, I can only get 63 inches height? Samsung and others need 68 ish?? I'm I missing something? Thanks

They are many that are less then even your 63"
Check on line at places like Home Depot.
Pick for your size to fit in height & width

you could always replace the cooling unit in it...that is what I did and it works better than when it was new....ice cream will freeze hard with no problem....works even better on propane...

What refer do you have now and what size is it?

I have a friend that installed a residential that is smaller than the Samsung, I'll find out what brand and model#

We have Dometic single door with top freezer. Cabinet cutout measures 24 X 60 I would be willing to lose the narrow cabinet and shelfs to the left for a larger residential Refer. But I'm afraid the limiting factor is the height. Even with removal of the top trim board to go to roof I get 63 1/2 inches.

I replaced ours with a Frigidaire we got from sears outlet with a scratch and ding on the side. doesn't show and saved $1000. Had to remove bottom drawers and top trim panel but it squeezed in and we love it. Counter top depth came right thru the front door with it after removing all the trim and screen door. Huge difference in size and function. I added a 2000 watt pure sine wave invert er just for the fridge with a transfer box. Worked couple hours a night and happy. Anyone need any parts for the Domentic before I take it to the dump? Still was working as long as it wasn't too warm outside, new one dosen't care how warm it is.

I had to lower the platform above the furnace to make enough room for our Whirlpool WRT111. Our coach is a 2000 Dutch Star so no room for a double door, but still one of the best mods we've done. But a word of advise, actually 3 words, measure, measure, and then measure again.

Oh, and good advise to go with a PSW inverter. No sense taking a chance.
