I replaced my fridge after a drill malfunction. Dont ask. Got a replacement at Walmart. Just measure the old and look for something close but dont go wider or it will hit the gas shock on the door

Yes, it is in a compartment but that compartment is not airtight and the dust gets in and I wish to minimize the dust and dirt on the TV!!

We still have the original outside fridge on our 29M and it works like a champ! Sorry to hear yours did not.

I presume that you have a residential (120 volt) refrigerator. Have you used it when dry camping? Do the coach batteries maintain their charge over night? When you replaced the refrigerator, did you take into consideration the energy use documentation to buy one that costs the least per year to operate?

I am thinking ahead for if (when) our gas/120-volt unit fails.

I always take mine out, they take up all the counter space, and run off the inverter... if you forget to un plug it , it runs everytime you use the inverter


to bad you're not in vegas I have 2 on my garage floor

The early outside kitchens have an ON/OFF switch in the frig. Later coaches (2017 mid year) have the same switch on the rear. It is accessed through the panel below the wardrobe drawers in the bedroom.

Man I thought Houston was done with freezing temperatures. I really donít want to drain all the water out again. Hereís the set up. They are saying itís going to be below freezing for about 6 hours. The low of 28 degrees. I was thinking I could turn on the heater and hot water heater (RV is at my house) and ride out the 6 hours? Bad idea?

That would definitely work. I don't even do that unless it's gonna get in the low 20s here in north Florida. It also depends on how cold it has been before the freeze; a day of 35 degree temps puts you closer to the danger zone than a day of 45 degree temps.

Applicable to all plant 750 coaches with outside kitchens. Found that out last the Sunshine Rally last spring. We spend a day with the SE regional Thor rep who trains dealer's sales agents.

Ion the rear of the outdoor frig is a knob that controls the temperature of the frig and when rotated foully counterclockwise will turn the frig off.



An inverter supplies battery power to the TV, outside frig and the electronic cabinet when shore or generator power is not available. If it is a Xantrex Pro Series inverter, there is a remote panel than controls the operation of the inverter. If you have a Xantrex Freedom XI, the operation of the inverter is programmable. If you nave an Magnum the operation is programmable.
