weight difference between 12 cft & 22cft fridge

We are getting very close to committing to a new 5th wheel trailer and I was contemplating the weight difference between the standard Norcold 12 in stainless and the residential 22 also in stainless. I am sure there has to be some plus the extra capacity of the residential will be greater when full of food. I am worried about whether the slide-out rollers, tracking, drive, etc. will wear faster having the additional weight of the larger fridge full of food.

Anyone have thoughts on this? TIA

If the slide was designed for a residential fridge, I wouldn't worry about it.

Well, until I tour the factory in 3 weeks I don't know if it has been designed to handle the extra weight or not.

The automatic answer will be 'of course it is designed for the extra weight'. What ever brand you are looking for, go to the user forums and review the comments on the residential fridge. BTW, we have the residential fridge and love it. A full size fridge is wonderful and always have ice cubes.
