I removed our working Dometic 8 cubic/ft from our full time fifth wheel and sold it on Craigs List for $500. The unit was replaced with a Vissani 10.1 cubic/ft from Home Depot for $400. I was going to install an inverter, but so far it has stayed cold during our 6-8 hour travels.

We are going through the same thing. Our Norcold 1200LR made it 13 years but died earlier this week. Due to the configuration of the coach door, dash and overhead TV, I don't know if I can get the old one out and a new one in. We full-time and I am not removing a window.

I have the doors and insides of the Norcold out and will have a buddy here this weekend so we can get it out of the cabinet and will determine if it can easily be taken out of the coach.

The coach furnace is under the refrigerator so I also have to determine what size replacement will fit and what modifications are possible.

I want a residential, but it might be all around easier to put in an Amish or RVCool cooling unit.

1. I had a very expensive, bad experience, with the Amish Cooling unit.
Should you decide to go that way, only have it installed at their factory, and have them verify the box isnít dead. I didnít and it cost me $1400.
2. Then I did the Samsung. It was a major project, with the furnace and kitchen sink plumbing underneath. It is doable, and the tolerances were ultra close. But we were extremely pleased after it was done. Fact the DW and I both wish this rig had the Samsung.

good idea i'll talk to dw if she wants one.

the temp inside the cell is warmer than ambient as the side panel of the fridge emits heat when compressor is running. currently we just store a foldable chair for dinner seating when more guests come over. it's handy sometimes for the storage of long/large objects.
