Generally there is an emergency escape window in the front and in the rear- flip the tabs that hold it in - Usually Red - and lift it up - might be stuck as it is not normally opened - measure and there you go.

Best of Luck,

Best of Luck,
My DW suggested the same thing last night. I'll put a tape measure to it today. The only concern I have is knowing how to put that window back in.

Rob,

The window is usually Hinged on the Top so you just need to prop it open the close it when done - That's how I got Mine In - So much easier.

I happened to Have a Forklift on My BobCat - but the Back of a Pickup and two men is also easy.

I measured both emergency escape windows last night. Neither is large enough to pass the old Dometic refrigerator. I did finish removing the wood trim and supports. Tonight I'll rebuild all the supports and remove the window in anticipation of the new fridge delivery. We bought a Whirlpool, model WRT518SZFM. It's a stainless steel faced unit with an ice-maker.

Lowe's had them on sale for $599. You have to purchase the ice-maker, so the grand total was $775 delivered and installed. I'll add pictures once we have everything installed. This refrigerator is narrower than the Dometic unit it replaces, so I'll be adding some storage (spice rack, utility closet) to the space next to the fridge. The DW is very happy about this new additional storage.

Rob

Sounds as if you have it all under control - Product Height 68.25 inches
Product Width 28 inches
Height To Top Of Refrigerator (Without Hinges) 67.125 inches
Height To Top Of Door Hinge 68.25 inches
Depth Without Handle 31.625 inches
Depth With Handle 31.625 inches


This unit would not fit in My Coach - Most of these Need to Be COUNTER DEPTH to work

Product Height 67.75 inches
Product Width 27.625 inches
Height To Top Of Refrigerator (Without Hinges) 67.75 inches
Height To Top Of Door Hinge 67.75 inches
Depth Without Handle 27.625 inches
Depth With Handle 27.625 inches


Yours might be different but might just want to check that 4"'s is BIG in the Coach.

Best of Luck,
