I need a new fridge for a '72 Overlander

If you have replaced a refrigerator in a 1970's Overlander, would you mind sharing with me the make and model number? Also, if you needed to make any modifications on install that would be nice to know too. Thanks. Jack

This is the replacement guide from Dometic. The replacement models are close, but some mods will be needed.

Thanks Richard. My trailer is in storage so I'll have to head over there and check out the model # of the one that is in there now. Any idea where the model number can be found on the the fridge? Thanks again.

Taking out the old Frige

The old frige in your Airstream may be different than the one that was in my 1976 31' Sovereign but maybe these pics will help in removing the old unit. Since they put the equipment in first and then built the cabinets around it you will need to remove certain things to get to all of the screws and things that hold it in place.

Good luck

Don

Thanks for the info everyone. I actually purchased and installed the new fridge. Here is my blog post about the process.

Hi Jack, I also ordered a new fridge for my trailer from PPL. it was delivered on a pallet, as well, but sat in my garage while I completed other renovations- one of which was replacing the old copper lined which was kinked. I had an HVAC company replace the copper line and, I thought, hook up the gas. I finally got the fridge in and tried to gas light it, and NOTHING. it is tight against the wall with the gas line. When I try to turn it on, I smell gas, but no light of ignition. It is a piezo. My trailer is parked at about a 7 degree angle. It had been transported by freight. Would either of those facts affect the gas? The HVAC people weren't knowledgable about these gas/electric fridges. Could they have installed the line and left it open. Is that why I smell gas when I try to turn it on? It is so tight against the wall that it is difficult to see what is connected, but I definitely smell gas coming into the trailer. BTW, the scoop isn't in yet.

Are you sure the gas line is connected to the unit? Can you take a photo of the connection and upload it?
