YUCK...but it works...

What to do? Working on the Safari today I realized that the frig works...gets nice and cold...BUT, its nasty, moldy, stinks and is just ugly on the inside...Replace it OR clean and scrub it out?

Try to clean it.

Hi, clean it. I don't think cleaning you refrigerator would be more work than physically replacing it; And much cheaper. Some spray bleach cleaner should remove almost anything including mold. Or windex with ammonia. Do not mix ammonia with bleach. Also don't use scratch pads.

For what a new one costs, I spend a good bit of effort cleaning the old one. If it works well clean it up and save the money for other things.

Agree - clean it. Sooner or later we all find a piece of blue food in our refrigerators. Your carefully cleaned older one might be more sanitary and germ free than a brand new one.

Oh and don't forget the baking soda trick to get rid of any lingering odors.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Hi Jay, I hate to disagree with everyone but unless you want to keep your trailer with original equipment, my thinking is the frig. is 42 years old, how long is it going to last? If it works good, clean it and sell it for a good price and buy a new one that you won't have any trouble with for a while.

Just my way of thinking.
