Learn How a Residential Refrigerator is Installed in a Motorhome; AmericanRVer.com


Learn how a Residential Refrigerator is Installed in a Motorhome on this Months AmericanRVer.com Webisode

Peggy Grich, host of the popular online TV show for RVers, American RVer.com, visited Alliance Coach in Wildwood, FL and details the steps involved in removing an old refrigerator and replacing it with a new residential unit.

“There has been a lot of discussion lately about replacing RV refrigerators, so we thought it would be interesting and exciting to show how it is done. I was amazed at all the things you have to consider, from removing the driver’s seat and window just to get the old unit out, to making sure the old gas line is capped off,” said Grich.

Audio and high-definition video versions of the free show can be found at www.americanrver.com. The show is also available online at iTunes. All previous webisodes are archived on the site, so viewers can catch up on shows they may have missed.

This month’s show marks the first time the high-definition feed is delivered by a streaming server dedicated to this type of video transfer. “The video quality is exceptional,” commented Jim Grich, producer and editor of the webisodes. “With a faster delivery and less buffering, the show is more engaging than ever before.”

Also new this month is a Tech Tip segment that will cover a variety of subjects including RV maintenance, leveling, hooking up in a campground site and various other tips for the expert and novice RVer.

About American RVer: American RVer is the longest continuously running video podcast on the Internet. Owners and hosts, Jim and Peggy Grich have been full-time RVers for four and a half years. They have over 30 years of television broadcast experience, including owning their own television station. They enjoy traveling, meeting fellow RVers, and highlighting people, places, and businesses as they journey across North America.

What is the point of this if the unit does not operate on 12v or LP Gas?

Decreased fire risk, less sensitive to being off level, quicker cool down, cools better than an RV fridge. When my Dometic gives up the ghost I'm heading to Lowes for a replacement.

We did it when we bought our Mh we knew the factory drive was bad, so we put a reseed tail drive in it. Works great for us. Might not work for everyone
