I installed wireless digital thermometers in the fig and freeze so every time I walk by I check and hold it around 37 to 42 deg (without opening the doors). So that helped a lot.

But the residential frig is SET IT and FORGET IT. I like that Ideal
I will measure the dimensions of the opening for the fridge tomorrow. You may be able to fit it in your. I'll also post a pic of the inside. It's almost 50% more capacity than the RV fridge. That's a lot of beer and cold cuts...oh, and salad.

I have a complete set (windshield and side windows) That were used about 4 times on a 2018 Vegas 25.6. I no longer have this coach. I'm asking $650. I also have all the magnets.

Here are the measurements of the opening for my fridge once I removed the cabinet overhead:
60"H x 23 3/4"W

Closet shelving

I had some time to finish up my closet shelving mod. I used the Closet Maid 16" wire shelving from the Depot. I bought 3 pieces x 6ft. The top shelf is supported in the front by small shelf angle bracket and by coax cable supports in the back. Zip ties hold it to the front brackets. The cubby unit was cut to fit below the top. The sides fit up tight to the top shelf and are notched in front for the top shelf's lip and for the existing closet pole. Two shelves were cut from leftover side piece. The side were cut with the heavier 1/4" rods cut flush. The shelves were cut in between the small wire so the 1/4" rods are ~1/2" long and rest on the small wires (horizontal) on the side pieces. Zip ties were used to hold it all together. I used a reciprocating saw for all cuts.

Thats awesome. I like the idea of having a shelve at the very top from end to end. Great place to put shoes or other stuff you dont need every day or week.
