I have the 12v version. I bought it about 3 years ago. I did not see it listed currently on ebay. It was about $380 back then and I haven't seen a deal like that since.

I replaced mine with a Frigidaire unit. Here's how I installed mine.

Installation:
1. I installed a separate 120v outlet controlled by a switch inside the MH so that I could easily turn the unit off when not needed without going outside to pull the plug (some units do not have an on/off switch).
2. I chose not to seal off the existing outside openings. I put a screen on the lower opening and installed 3ea. 12v fans in the upper vent to assure good air circulation. I used the 12v wiring from the old Norcold and put the fans on a thermally controlled line with a separate switch inside my MH.
3. In the back, I anchored the unit by putting 2 lag bolts through the bottom metal rails of the refrigerator into the flooring.
4. Inside, I attached (using 3m 3M Scotch 4910 VHB Tape 2 sided tape) 2 metal brackets to the top of the refrigerator and then screwed these to the wood above the refrigerator. I then trimmed around the perimeter of the fridge with black plastic L channel which I purchased from Display Products online ( Extrusions by Display Products Online). This can be purchased with the tape already attached.

Wbago97 I had the same problem keeping beer cold as I stored it down low in the fridge. I installed a recirculation fan inside the fridge a few years ago now the beer is ice cold. Used a small fan from a old computer very low amperage works great

Vera and Ken what do you mean by fridge unit? Are you talking cooler unit or did you replace with a new fridge?
