AC replacement Fridge for 2004 19 Bambi?

The old fridge in my 2004 19 Bambi just went Tango Uniform (Dead). The Bambi is always on shore power so Im looking for a temporary replacement like a dorm fridge from Home Depot. Anyone ever do this? What are the dimensions of an AC fridge that will fit?
Thanks

Yes. Just cap off the gas line and test for leaks.
Subtract at least an inch and a half from the height and width of existing refer. A dorm refer is not a zero clearance unit. It needs air flow space.

R U sure it is dead? They don't make them like they used to, but a non-compressor based RV fridges can work for 50 years, no sweat. It is usually is not dead unless it has blown ammonia refrigerant outside (or inside where your life would be endangered and no insect would survive/reinhabit for years). If you didn't get a whiff of ammonia, it may be sick but isn't dead. Wiring contacts can come loose, and one or two red faced members have gone shopping for a new fridge only to realize the plug had shaken loose while traveling, or a lead had come loose from a circuit board .... duh. Free fix!


To my limited knowledge, the cooling unit on ALL RVmodels can be replaced with a refurbished unit easily, and for a fraction of the cost of replacing the whole box.
