On the Argosy, if you have the original refrige could you give me it's dimensions, our 76 22' Argosy's refrige is missing and I want to either look for an older vintage model or replace it if I have to.

For the Avanti frig person and whoever else that has installed an aftermarket AC only frig...what do you use to keep the doors closed when traveling?

I have just ordered an Avanti to replace an old Dometic that quit cooling...and am anticipating having items in the frig while on the road...not to be spilled out when in motion.

Any ideas or links would be helpful.

Short Term Savings

To all the people that removed their RV fridge and replaced it with a household 110VAC fridge. This would be fine if your unit was parked permanently. Household fridges are not designed to be driven down the road. Subjecting these cheap fridges to constant and extensive bumps rattles and vibrations will IMHO cause the units to fail prematurely.The compressors and cooling lines will not stand up to this kind of abuse for long. You will also need to rewire in order to have 110VAC while traveling. The reslale value of your A/S will be lowered because of this cheap fix as well. If you add these costs to the fact that you will be replacing the fridge a lot sooner than an RV fridge I can't see the benefits of doing this. It would be far better to replace the fridge with the correct one now. No I am not selling fridges this is just my opinion based on several years experience as an RV Technician and A/S owner.
