FireFighter,
You should have both your 'Owner's Manual and Maint Manual'..
There should be info in one of those manuals on how to do this..I would think~

got it out

well after scratching my head and removing all of the screws that i could find, 2 huge ones and 4 others the fridge still would not come out. so i pried the bottom trim piece from the fridge to find the largest bead of white silicone ever seen on earth. this is what was holding it in. cut it and whola fridge slid right out.

i did learn something, i figured that the big vent on the top of the trailer was connected to the tube where the flame is but it is not at all the nasty air is just going up through that roof vent as rises. thus the need for a lot of silicon around the refridgerator cabinet.

i don't think that the guys at the airstream factory plan on people like us dismanteling there work.

We just removed ours today from our 71 Overlander. I would say by the way it was installed at the factory it was not meant to be removed! It had these brackets screwed into the side of the fridge then screwed into the wall, cabinet, floor, etc. We had to remove the counter, cabinet above fridge on counter, pantry cabinet to the left of the fridge before we saw the brackets.
