You have it right just be careful to hook up the + and - to the right connections.

That fridge is one heck of a deal so go for it.

My suggestion will not allow the fridge to run off of propane unless you are plugged into 110v.

Shane, there should be a plug in the same fixture that has the television antenna lead. It will look like a cigarette lighter plug. On an Argosy 26, it should be on the wall of the trailer, near the divider bulkhead where the fridge is installed.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Ok guys today is the day to remove and install the new fridge. The fridge is bolted to the floor I understand but how do you get to the bolts? There is a metal bottom underneath the trailer do I have to remove this metal plates or just the screen where the fridge sits?

If I recall correctly, when I replaced mine, the access was all from the access door (clever name they gave it) and the bolts may have been big screws. I am pretty sure I didnt have to take off any of the belly pan.

Fridge replacement

I took out the old Dometic from my 72 Tradewind. Taking it out was easy, unbolt the bottom screws, take off the side panel and remove the plate there, unscrew the gas line.
I got the 12 volts from a cig lighter outlet that was right over the cabinet in the kitchen. I just spliced into the wires there and ran it to the fridge. Had to bend the gas line some to make that work and then cut a hole in the bottom for the drain hose.

The bigger problem is that the new Dometic was a close fit but not an exact match and was about 1/2 " wider and an inch shorter causing some work on the counter and floor to be done. We had to take the 1/2" out of the storage panel next to it so the end panel didn't bulge outward and then buy a floor trim piece to cover over the flooring.
