How airtight is ok?

Installing new Dometic 2354 frig in '69 Globetrotter and will have to build new enclosure to contain both frig and furnace. Just how airtight must frig combustion compartment be from living space? Old cabinet certainly wasn't airtight by any stretch. Don't want this to become a NASA project, but do want to stay alive. Guidance, please!

i can tell you they have gotten better at making the enclosure air tight!

i had one heck of a time getting my fridge out for repair, all of the cabinet seams from the factory were sealed with lots of silicone. the face of the fridge was/is sealed with weather stripping and the bottom gap is filled with silicone to boot!

reasonably air tight is the answer to your question.

here is a thread on my fridge with some photos that may help.


you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors are getting resonable now. Our little Traveler will absolutely get one before we go anywhere.
