Week end getaway

In Albuquerque for a four day week end, our motel on wheels. When we take the time to be in the Airstream it makes us want to get away more often. Love our business life, but truly love it when we " slow down to go fast". The trick is to always plan our next getaway when the present one is over. A ton of people out here enjoying Ballon Fiesta week.

This work is being done in the 2014 31' Classic. Since the Vitrifrigo DP2600 (53 ⅛”) is over 10” shorter than Dometic RM3862 (63 15/16”), we created a box enclosure with a matching door above the refrigerator. The old volume was about 9 cubic feet and the new is 8.1 cubic feet with a DanFoss freon based compressor. Due to the extensive trailer rewiring for the solar system on trip #1 to A&P, the 120Vac power to the refrigerator is only energized when on shore power or a generator. The default power source is 12Vdc. When the inverter is on, the refrigerator 120Vac circuit does not get power nor does the main air conditioner.

The new fridge is about 9/16" narrower so in order to have a solid piece of wood to screw the trim to, we put a 9/16" filler strip on one side only.
