Cant get frige out of 65 Tradewind.

Im having a tough time trying to get my refrigerator out. I have a 65 Tradewind. I removed 4 bolts from the bottom and two screws from the sides(c-top),thinking that would allow it to slide out. If anybody out there could lend a hand I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks, Doug

Hi Doug, If your set up is anything like the one in my Safari, it won't just slide out. I had to detatch mine from the gaucho on one side and the wall on the other. It also was lashed into the surrounding cabinet by aluminum flashing and rivets. One you start removing whatever surrounds it it will become apparent what continues to hold it in. It's easier to start from the front of the trailer and work back. Good luck! Diane

Unfortunately, the reefers in earlier AS's were attached witha piece of Aluminum metal that is concealed behind the interior side wall on either side.

You may have to remove some interior components to include but not limited to credenza, interior wall, closet, to get to the screws.

I have had much better luck with Units since 1979, all screws were accessible from the front and rear (access panel)

Did I mention of the five AS's I have had, I had to replace or repair four of them? Seems that Fridge replacement is SOP.
