Yep Dad Dad Shot the Fridge!

Got the measurments. My opening is 24"x48". 54 is going ot get me into trouble with the flue. My interrior flu cover is damaged so it meeds attention anyway. do you have a depth measurment? I want to think this over and figure out if I can make it work.

I did a little detective work and I am pretty confident that Dad did shoot the fridge LOL I put a rod through the hole and the bullit just missed the wardrobe but the reefer door sticks out about 2 inches and he had to get it.

cut the flue

Fridges are typically about 26 deep.

I have cut the flue to accomodate deep reefers. The flue is simply a cavity that leads to the vent on top of the trailer.

The flue is really just an asthetic "shroud". you will notice that the flue only extends below the shelf.

It is there to keep things from falling behind the reefer.

Thumbs up Nice Job

Ken... Nice job! Will you try to put a piece of paneling on the front of the white fridge to match it up like the old one was?
Your compressor style fridge will get it colder faster. We are on the road a lot so won't switch to a compressor type for now.

We used the ice cooler thing for many years when we camped with the tents and then later the pop up. It was sure nice to buy this Safari with the 2 way. It appears to be original ( 30 years old) and still works great. I have a pancake fan that I will install in the Spring. It will help move air on the coils and help the cooling process.

Brighter

No, I will not be putting panels on the fridge.

We are trying to brighten up the AS with all new white appliances, very light colored carpet, light curtains, light counter top, new white blinds.

I even pulled the stove out and refinished it in white, it was black originally.

A nice contrast to the original dark interior.

I will send pics of the new appliances and counter tops today.

Our original Dometic only lasted 9 years and it hurt to put $1200 into another one that doesn't cool well, has no ice maker, and doesn't have automatic defrost. I understand that the old reefers in rv's lasted like the Duracell battery ad claims - on and on. The newer ones develop leaks (like mine) and when you smell that amonia, you know its time to shell out big bucks. When mine goes out again, I plan to put in an electric one. I believe bags of ice inside one would keep food ok during times when no 110 volt is available, after all, they say its unsafe to run the gas reefer on the road. Thanks for pics and information.

Wayne
