I would plan on replacing any Norcold refrigerator in a legacy coach. They have a tendency to catch fire and have burned down a large number of coaches.
They had a large class action lawsuit a few years ago but their refrigerators are in all the older coaches. You will have some choices. A new Norcold will cost around $2400 depending on model. You can add a new 120v (or 12v) compressor from JC refrigeration. Several posts on here about this conversion. Some folks go with an "Amish" cooling unit.
Many of us have installed residential refrigerators. I installed a Samsung RF18 the first week we owned our 2004 Monaco coach. It has been fantastic. However, some coaches have the furnace directly under the Norcold and this can be an issue.
Hope this helps.
