Norcold 1200 replacement

My Norcold 1200 finally died and I am in the prosses of replacing it with a Whirlpool 11 qf with Ice maker. It is 61&1/2 inches tall and they say it's 24&1/2 inches wide And the cabinet is 21&1/2 inches deep. It is really 24 inches wide. so I built a pantry next to it. It has stainless steal doors and looks nice. The doors set 4 inches out from the wall but that's not a problem.

I have 2005 Dolphin 5355

I built a 7 inch wide 14 inch deep pantry along the back side of the opening and had to raise the floor about 2 inches. I drilled a 3/8 hole in each side of the rear plate and bolted it down with 2 4 inch long 1/4 inch lag bolts. I installed an L bracket on the top of the left front and insulated and completed the trim around the opening. It fits and looks nice and the extra pantry space is nice to have. If I knew how to post pictures I would. The most important thing is the wife is happy.

The model# is WRT111SFDM. It is advertised by some as a 10.7 QF and by others as 11 QF. I bought mine from Home Depot for 398$ and 104$ for the ice maker.

I have been looking at this LG refrigerator it's 24" wide and 26" deep, it is slightly taller at 66.5" then the Whirlpool, it will be a tight fit.

On my 2005 national rv Dolphin the heighth of the opening is 63 inches and the furnace is under this and doesn't have the 3 inches to drop it down. This unit also doesn't have a provision for an ice maker that was one of my requirments.


ps the whirpool has the condenser coils on the back of the frig. and doesn't require venting under the frig.

I looked at the LG yesterday at Lowes,not bad but a little too tall.I think the Whirlpool would be better for me,easier to add height that take away .
