Back to taking out the fridge....I believe it is usually at least a 2 person job. Terry has super powers so he did it by himself
I first went with a rebuilt cooling unit, then a refurbished used fridge with a rebuilt cooling unit, then three more replacement rebuilt cooling units (because the tubes became clogged inside the cooling unit), and finally a brand-new fridge direct from Airstream. By the time I got done replacing them, it was taking 90 minutes for every removal and re installation. Too bad Nascar doesn't have fridge swapping...
Now you know why I suggested bypassing everything in between, and going with new.
You will have to run a 12 volt
power wire to the new fridge, as the RM70+xx series doesn't have a piezoelectric igniter, but a flint wheel for ignition. Other than that, it's not a tough swap.
