Dometic model fridge in 64' Tradewind?

The Fridge is dead in my 64' Tradewind. Yellow residue indicating amonia leak.
Am planning to get rehabbed cooling coils in spring, problem is that I am unable to find the model number. I know it is the original refrigerator and it is a dometic.

Can anyone with a 64' help me out with this?

Thank - You,
Karol

They varied from year to year, trailer to trailer. My Ohio built '64 Overlander originally had a Dometic RM25 (or RM52?)

You won't find a rebuilt cooling unit for that fridge, too old. Your actual cooling unit will have to be rebuilt, or you will have to purchase another fridge.

buy new

If you add it up 300 for coil, 75-100 for door seals now turn it on and it's something else, if you shop smart new $600

Thank - You all for the input and thanks for the link RV Cool.
I was forunate to find my 64 intact ( with a little water damage - it sat neglected for a while ) and I am trying to keep the interior appearance original, so the snyder link really helps.
I have looked for the model of my dometic fridge and am unable to find it.
Thanks again,
Karol

sometimes they are on a plate on the bottom sill of the refrigerator section, but most of the time they are on a plate on the left rear bottom on the back of the refrigerator.
