Compass / Gemini 23TW fridge size?

This one is driving me nuts. Days of online searching have led me to not one single answer.

I'm looking at the 23TW. I'm in the early research stage right now, haven't yet made the very long drive out to the nearest dealer.

Can anyone tell me either the make / model of the standard evap fridge in this unit, or else the physical dimensions (specifically, width?)

My reason for asking that I'd prefer to remove it and replace it with a 12v compressor unit, given that my focus here is on building a boondocker. The 23TW has all kinds of potential space on the outside of it for solar panels, but very little space inside for a fridge that the designers didn't think of.

I'm basically assembling my dream rig on paper right now. If the dimensions of the space its sitting in (plus my best guess at the height of the compartments above and below it) won't accommodate a compressor unit, then that kills my vision for this one.

I'm not sure about your model or year. We own a 2019 23TR - so a bit different. The fridge is the 5.5 cu feet Norcold 3 way - model # N51x.3
The manual says "rough opening dimensions (HxWxD)" 42 5/8 x 23 11/16 x 24.

Thanks for the reply.

Based on some photos from for-sale ads, the unit in your '19 TR does appear outwardly identical to the ones in the current-production TWs.

Very much appreciate the info.
