Norcold 1200 poor cooling, PART ll
This the second promised tread about my 1200 woes. Brief recap, poor cooling, freezer mid 20s, refer mid 30s. Thermostat full cold. Good a/c heating element, good LP flame, no bugs, fans work. I have off and on researched converting to a residential refer and 2 years ago started a thread and such looking for suggestions that wouldn't require removing windshield, slides or windows.
2007 Itasca Horizon 40FD and refer in curb side slide. My reading shows many put in the Samsung 18 but that requires some cabinet work due to height. We have a pan drawer below the refer and would like to keep it. Others mentioned the Fisher paykel but commented is was very expensive compared to Samsung or other "apartment" model refer. Yesterday I checked and the FisherPaykel model RF170WDLUX5 supposedly required virtually no cabinet changes was $1500 on Amazon and eBay and have not researched any other residential refer that would fit with little to no modification.
Samsung, reading a lot of negative posts about deteriorating quality. Since in reality there are very few different actual manufacturers, many competing brands are just rebadged and I have not researched who is who in that respect.
FisherPaykel, in spite of the additional costs, how many have installed this model and what has been the high and low spots for it? Other models who has good and bad experiences. I know there are a lot of threads on this subject but since appliances change frequently what has changed in this area?
The motorhome has a 2000W modified sine wave inverter that I would rather not change since all features work well and everything else in the coach is compatible with it.
