Where did the factory bring the power from?

Is your slide out from Journeyman?
Looks like it fits perfect. Where does the power come from for it ?
I hope to get my cooler this week.

When I purchased my Ventana from Independence RV I had them install the OEM optional drawer and receptacles both 12 volt and 120 volt, so it was a dealer installed option.

Sorry I do not know what brand it is.

Looks like the pulled wires all the way to the factory circuit panel in the Bathroom

Too early to tell if we will add it.

I don't know abut the Ventana, but on my Dutch Star, in that compartment is a metal single gang utility box mounted on the ceiling with a blank faceplate. In that box are 120v wires connected with wire nuts. I picked up a receptacle and face plate and put it in that box and bought a small dorm size refer from Amazon. Works great -- been in there for 7 years now. Oh, that 120v circuit is inverter powered, so the refer can operate when not on shore power.

Looks like it fits perfect.

I also ordered that model and it does look like the Journeyman but Iím a bit worried about the width. From their catalog it looks like the HFT3726-RL, but the bottom free measurement has me a bit worried.

Ted can you tell us the width of the fridge/freezer at the bottom where it meets the tray? The journeyman looks to be 31 3/8Ē free on the tray and I canít tell if that is wide enough (depends upon the radius of the bottom edge and the width of the left side rail. Thanks in advance.

I looked all over it for a tag but could not find one so I have no Idea what brand this is.

outside dimension of tray is 37 inches, inside dimension of tray is 33 1/2 fridge is 32.8 inches with the electric cord.

My tray had an angle iron upright welded on the right side likely for the Newmar spec dometic fridge freezer.

I cut a 1/2 in plywood board to completely fill the drawer with a slot in it to go over the upright, but I still had to cut the upright 1/2 inch shorter so it was just below the board so it would not dig in to the new fridge.

Might be this one but not sure NRFTM 4024

Ted.

I use it as a freezer all the time. Being fulltime it is a perfect addition to the coach. Also install a 3/4" plywood shelf above it to maximize the space. Need to pull the fridge out to get into it anyway so it makes a nice counter top under the new shelf.

Great Idea I have seen a few people do this and I may borrow the Idea as well.

Just added one to mine since my coach had the optional drawer and receptacle.

I went with the Dometic CFX-75DZWSE biggest one that will fit.

Howdy!

We have a outside small refrigerator with our Cyclone toy hauler. It is really not used much. I would like to replace it with a freezer only type.

“Happy Trails”

I didnít have one in my Dutch Star and didnít think I would need it. My London Aire came with it. We have put it to great use. Future coaches will have one.
