This work is being done in the 2014 31' Classic. Since the Vitrifrigo DP2600 (53 ⅛”) is over 10” shorter than Dometic RM3862 (63 15/16”), we created a box enclosure with a matching door above the refrigerator. The old volume was about 9 cubic feet and the new is 8.1 cubic feet with a DanFoss freon based compressor. Due to the extensive trailer rewiring for the solar system on trip #1 to A&P, the 120Vac power to the refrigerator is only energized when on shore power or a generator. The default power source is 12Vdc. When the inverter is on, the refrigerator 120Vac circuit does not get power nor does the main air conditioner.
The new fridge is about 9/16" narrower so in order to have a solid piece of wood to screw the trim to, we put a 9/16" filler strip on one side only.
