at this point control wires get routed back to the box, wire ties added to secure them.

then all the covers go back on the burner.

now the fridge is ready to go back in the trailer!

after getting my neighbor dave to help me move the fridge back into my trailer i took a couple seconds to enlarge the opening with a block plane to make it easier on us guys.

this photo shows the fridge about 3/4 of the way back in.

at this point i installed new weather strip to keep any carbon monoxide out of the living quarters in case the fridge should malfunction!

important!

now the thermostat goes back in and the drip tray is reinstalled.

note the bend in the thermostat wire so it too drips into the pan...

this too is important to keep carbon monoxide out of the trailer!

so to sum it up in the time it took me to post this the fridge has cooled to 40 degrees and started to freeze water in the ice cube trays!

pretty good i think!

all i have left to do now is reinstalling the freshly painted shelves tommorrow!

Tech. side of the job.

John,

Great work, I am curious as to the amount of beer it took to finish this job off? If my frig. ever goes south I will need an ice cooler large enough to hold the correct amount to finish the job, what is this amount?

rick

this was about a 12 beer job, a small cooler will do!

about a 5 on a scale of 10, no major hand tools are needed except the 3 foot crowbar!
