Samsung fridge installed

This was a project that I took on because we had our 2003 coach burn up due to our Norcold fridge catching our coach on fireClick image for larger version

Good job and I don't need to tell you, well worth it. I secured my Samsung RF197 in three ways:

1) I turned the front leveling brackets around so instead of sticking out the front they are closer to the front frame of the fridge. Then I replaced the leveling screws with bolts that came up through a metal angle that I installed under fridge (before it was installed) into the leveling brackets.

2) I fabricated a L-shaped bracket that I secured to the frame of the fridge in the back and reaching through the old Norcold opening in the side of the rig I was able to bolt that bracket to the platform the fridge is sitting on.

3) I cut two small hard rubber blocks (approx. 2" x1/2") and forced them into the small space between the side of the fridge and the cabinet trim towards the top on both sides. This probably wasn't necessary, but it does keep the top very secure from moving side to side (front to back on the coach).

I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to safely secure it, but this worked for me. Congrats on the new fridge and good luck.

As this was done with only hours to spare before a Family reunion at the Beach the attachments were SIMPLE

Just a couple of metal straps drilled to work the Bolt Holes on the Hinge.

Then I reversed the floor levelers and cut two pieces of oak flooring to hold the bottom in at the rollers (These will be replaced with Stained Maple when I get the chance) everything worked fine, no overkill, just KISS systems that worked fine.

Hope the Pictures attached - Can't rotate the one of the Refrig - but you can zoom into see the Oak wheel locks.

Best of Luck,
