My new cooling unit came in today!

Junior at JC Refrigeration is definitely a man of his word! I didn't even have to pay the freight on the new unit!

Now if I can just recruit some help to get that sucker installed...........

We bought a Frigidare and got rid of the Norcold . Had to have it installed because they had to remove the passenger side window to get it in there. And do some wiring involving adding an inverter, We have only used this set up once. Worked great. Ours has the freezer above. You will have to get some locks for the doors so they don't swing open when traveling, very important. You can find the latches at an R.V. joint , ask the man....you will like the residential.


Happy R.V. ing

We have just finished changing our Norcold to a GE 15.5 top freezer model. AJMadison was a great source of information for finding dimensions etc. when making the conversion. As for securing the doors while travelling, I made use of the 2 bolt holes on the cabinet flange that are used when switching the doors to either left or right hand opening. I installed a small wire retaining clip and used a small bungee cord to contain doors while travelling. We have a Xantrex 2000 inverter which handled the power very well. The only regret is not having done it sooner. We gained more fridge space, unit came thru the door with only removing the screen and the unit maintains temperature easily. FYI

I'm interested on purchasing door latches for mine Samsung French doors refrigerator. Do you have to drill holes on the doors to install them. Right now I'm using bungee straps to keep the doors from swinging open whenever we make a left hand turn.

My RV is 17 years old, so I feel like I am on borrowed time with the fridge. I understand the benefits of the redidential unit, but am not sure it makes sense for me. We race, and basically never have plug ins for a weekend. So we travel to the track which can be a couple hours anyhow, then camp overnight. No issue if we have to run the AC, as the generator will be running. But during the spring and fall, we may go all night with no generator running. I recently installed a PSW 2000 W inverter, but I only have two coach batteries....not that I couldn't figure out how to install more. How practical is a residential for my situation?

If you are running the generator anyway except for at night then it is basically the same as being hooked to shore power. If you have enough battery AH's you can run the fridge all night without depleting the batteries. I do with 4 GC-2 6 VDC batteries hooked in series parallel that have 225 usable AH's. If there is too much parasitic 12 VDC loads or 120 VAC loads then you may not be able to go the night without the generator kicking on.

If I turn everything off except for the fridge and start the night with a full battery bank I can go all night without the generator starting up. if it is cold out then that's another situation.
