Refr

Just changed my Demetic RM 2801 to a DM2862. This only one we could find that came close to fitting . Nice frig But had to make enclosure 2" taller and add trim between wall and ref door about 1 1/4" thick since it is taller it would not go in as far as old one ,new one hits the outside roof curve . Also had to move 120v outlet since new cord was to short.
So make sure your frig enclosure will fit what ever frig your going to use.
Old ref door hit the bath room wall but this one now can be opened all the way and does not hit the wall.

Not sure what I'm going to do with the fridge. The old one works, but it had trim around it too. I found a newer used one that I might get, but I'm not at the point yet. I got some plumbing to do first, then finished floor, then upper cabinets.

Keep in mind Dometic said that DM2852 and DM2862 are the replacement for RM 2801 even when it is larger.
Had to add trim to the trim.But frig does not stick out past door below it. If you use old refrige make sure you have room to get the new bigger one in latter. Was a real fight for 2 men to get the new one in.Biggest problem was the distance between bath wall and refrige enclosure. Like I said even had to remove stove to get past oven door handle.
Coast me about USD $500 to install new one because of mod needed to enclosure and it was a Saturday.

I'll be putting the fridge in before the bathroom walls get put up, so I'll have plenty of room. Thanks for the heads up.

After some Eternabond tape and some Decor along the Zip Dee awning and a good rainfall, I think I have the leaking roof problem licked. Now I can started on the finished floor.

Well I still had a bit of a leak problem when it rains really hard. Water was somehow getting underneath the rolled up awning. I propped the awning away from the trailer and we had a good rainfall and no leaking. The water gets in through the flex key and is trapped behind the first round channel that lays against the trailer. It then leaches up underneath the awning rail and probably leaks through a rivet. I'm going to try some sikaflex or vulcum along the bottom of the awning rail and see if that stops it.

My countertop came in today and I got it installed. Off snowmobiling for the weekend, then start cutting out the sink next week. The kitchen is almost done. Soon I'll be tackling the bathroom.

I wanted to keep these cabinet handles so I stripped off the brass and painted the engraving blue.

That is amazing! Did you actually paint inside or just remove surface paint? Did you cover with clearcoat? Really awsome!

Painted then wipe off right away with lacquer thinner. I haven't clear coated them yet, but I will be.

Thanks for sharing. How did you remove the bolts that connect the frame to the subfloor and shell? Im having a hard time getting these out and doing a shell on '89 33' Squarestream right now.

Many thanks
