Refrigerator Front Door Panel

Hi All,

The front panel on my frig has multiple scratches. Has anyone attempted to remove the panel and turn it over? I called AS but they could not help me.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The front panels are totally replaceable on most all RV refrigerators. Just look carefully for screws which most likely hold the top trim on. Once you get the trim removed you can slide out the old and put anything in you want. I have used plastic laminate with good results. If it is not thick enough for the slot, add a backing to it.

Now, if the Interstate has some different refrigerator that I am not familiar with, my advice may not be worth much. But if it is a Dometic or Norcold the panels should be easily changed.

I can't imagine why AS could not help on this issue.

I used Masonite and applied vinyl wall paper that coordinated with the décor of the trailer. You could also use paneling.

It's a Nova Kool.

I'm leaving my aluminum panel as-is; that and the ceiling are the only aluminum bits on an Interstate, and the only things that provide any sense of kinship at all to you trailer owners!
