There is alot more to repair that coach than meets the eye. The company selling it is telling you that when they say they have been in the RV repair business for 23 years and thay don't want to touch it !

Try this

All I got on that link was an ad for EBAY.
When the link is opened you should see three choices to go into the auction you want to Click or tap (depending if your on a PC or smart phone) on "view on the e-bay web site" option. It should take you right to it.

Thanks for posting.
As long as you negotiate a good price and budget for a residential refrigerator, don't toss out a good baby with the bath water.

We bought our current MH knowing we would do the swap out. The price was right including that cost.

You would think with today's technology, someone would come up with a frig system that didn't burn up like all these RV's we have seen over the years. Maybe not enough people have died yet for the Government to take notice.
Someone has come up with a system. ARP monitors the boiler temperature and keeps it below the point where damage can occur. My understanding is the inventor of this product has approached both major RV fridge manufacturers, we'll see if they license his technology.

In the meantime Gary Brinck has done a review of it and several people on this site have installed them. I purchased one and will install it in two weeks when I pick up our re-skinned coach from Newmar.

I am always concerned with slide-out refrigerator installations, they disrupt the natural flow of heat.

No external skin damage. Only internal.

Fridge fires start in the coil area when the amonia burns, right? So, fridge fires are not always about absorbtion coil heat me thinks.

We bought our current MH knowing we would do the swap out. The price was right including that cost.

We were told by a salesman somewhere that it'd be better to order one the way you wanted it rather than change out a fridge. That might have been to change a residential to a 2 way though. Would it be easier to change a 2 way to a residential?

When we first started researching, I thought it would be much better to have a 2 way rather than a residential because we do dry camp occasionally. I've since changed my mind!

We were also told by a salesman that the 2 way/4 door was the most expensive fridge. If that's true, it would seem that the swap wouldn't cost a whole lot more if any unless the price of the residential fridge does not include the inverter or batteries. My head is going to explode trying to figure all this out!

We camped near a couple who were on their third rig. Their first one had some fire damage from fridge fire and the MH was totalled out and replaced by Norcold,I guess. The second one was a brand new one and had the recall repair done. One night at 2 AM,they smelled smoke and got out the window and made it around to the front door in time to let their dog out. The MH was GONE in 5 minutes. They were given another brand new MH,well upgraded of course, which had a residential fridge this time.
