Would look at either Isotherm or Vitrifrigo for a conversion kit. Both sell marine grade units that run on 12VDC and are excellent! Not sure what VTS sells.
Another thought to consider is the condition of the door seals on your existing RV fridge. These are usually 'challenged' right from the factory and generally can not be counted on when trying to upgrade to a marine cooling unit.
Also, new marine units have magnetic door seals and far better latching mechanisms. I install them on a regular basis and have never had a complaint about the performance, even in very high ambient temperatures.
