Maybe not the typical residential fridge question?

Tried searching for this one without much luck....
Thinking about a fridge swap, moving to residential refrigerator from the notorious Norcold 4 door.

The issue: in my '05 Phaeton, the fridge sits above the fuse/circuit breaker panel, so my height is limited to about 68 1/2 inch tall. Have found some possible models that might fit, but anyone had success placing a residential above the fuse/breaker panel?

If it's a side by side most have installed the Samsung unit, but others fit. If smaller look at Vitrifrigo and Nova Kool. I put the Nova Kool 9000 in and so far no problems. Does need too be defrosted every few months, but at least the damn thing works...

Mine had the propane heater under it and left me exactly 3/4" of clearance. I installed mine without a floor to make it fit. I did an install on my sister's coach, a 2004 Itasca Meridian and the breakers were under the refer. They were mounted to a plate that was much smaller than the opening. I moved them down and shortened the panel that covered them. We gained about 3".

Under the Norcold on mine was a 12 volt breaker box, a propane alert and a radio speaker. I lowered the floor under the refrigerator a couple of inches so I could install a Samsung refrigerator. I was able to lower the breaker box and propane alert so they fit in the trim under the lowered refrigerator base. Didn't need to modify the wiring at all. The speaker was to large to fit and I don't seem to miss that one.
