Norcold OUT Residential in

Here it is:



Norcold out



once out saw Dutchman handywork not really surprised



panels held together with metal tape only again not really shocked .. should be ... but not!



resized cabinet added perma board insulation



prep for install



all thats left is the trim that I'm working on to cover the edges ..split wood ... crazy holes they made ... any questions feel free to ask. Its lighter, less expensive, cools much faster, and I feel good about it... Yes, it took some thought as to secure it down, vent it properly and so on but not too bad.

Camper2b,

I like your install. Nice job! Do you have an inverter for when your traveling? Or, will you be running your Genny during travel.

House Rules:
  1. Load Adult Beverages First
  2. Everything else is on it's own
  3. Man DOES NOT live by bread alone (see Rule #1)

Do you remember the measurements on the new refrigerator? Brand would be helpful and cubic feet too.

Robert, its this one spec's listed Shop Haier 10.28-cu ft Top-Freezer Refrigerator (Black) at Lowes.com a little less cubic ft... but the Norcold was only 12 cubic ft. So far its worked great, am pleased.
