Converting to a Residental Refridgerator
I replaced my Dominic Refrigerator with a Whirlpool 9.7 cu ft purchased at Lowes on my 89 Sportscoach IV. It works 100% better that the old RV fridge. I use a inverter to run it when not plugged in or running my Generator. I re framed the floor, removed the rubber feet on the Fridge, and screwed the unit to the floor thru the rubber mount holes. I foamed around the unit to secure and seal, installed brown door molding around the interior opening and it looks like it belongs there. I had to trim 1/2 inch on the side wall framed opening , but other than that it was a easy install, and done for under $400. I left the outside vent in place for cooling the Fridge, and to access the plug in, as well as getting to the propane connection. The added bonus was that I installed a quick connect to the propane line to run my gas grill. If you search the forum, you will see that there are many RVers that have done this conversion, and are as happy as I am with the finished result. Good Luck.
