Replacing Norcold 1200 with residential

Would it be possible for forum members that have replaced thier No-cold refers with residential units to reply with make and model of the refridgerator that they have had good luck with? I'm looking for a model that would fit the original opening side to side but can go down about 8in. if needed. Thanks Marty

Samsung RF197

Almost finished in this pic. It was completed in 2010 and used six months a year, plus, ever since. Great mod.

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like I will be going with the Samsung RF197. It will go through the door and very little alterations that I can do myself. Thanks again, Marty

I installed a Samsung 197 in my coach myself, and we are very happy.

For those of you that have switched over to the residential refers, is there any limiting factors with running it with 4 6V house batteries, vs. the 6 ea. that most new coaches come with for that application? On our Journey, with a 2K watt inverter, I only have room for four 6V's which I converted over from the original 3 12V's that it came with. Wile most of our trips are with "hookups", we do dry camp on occasion, especially in Quartzsite for about 10 days at a stretch.

We also have four 6v (replaced three 12v) and a 2000W inverter. With everything off except Samsung 197 I can go 26 hours. At 26 hours the four 6v (Trojan T-105's) are at 50% state of charge. That's with Samsung on Energy Saver and icemaker off.

We dry camp all the time. We just run the jeny about a hour in the evening and a hour in the morning. We can run the furnace all night in 18 degree weather with no problems. And all lights and TVs and everything else. If its hot out, the jeny runs almost 24-7. And we have no led lights and only a 5 amp solar. Just use that jeny. That's what their made for. When voltage gets low I fire it up.
