It wasn’t a walk in the park, but the new refrigerator is in! We have a trip coming up very soon and are feeling a great sense of relief that we have a working refrigerator. I returned the dorm size (just in case) refrigerator to Home Depot today, still in it’s box. I wasn’t going to return it until the new one was installed and working for at least 24 hours!
We bought the Homelabs 7.6 cubic feet residential refrigerator with freezer. With our lithium battery set up, solar power system, new generator plus the ability to plug into a power source at a campsite if they have it, we feel good about having this residential refrigerator. We rebuilt the floor the fridge sits on and once we had it in where we wanted we thoroughly braced it. We lined the vent door with waterproof weather striping to protect it from cold and hot weather and we have foam on order to frame it in snugly to keep air that could come through into the living area.
I’ve put my bins in already and am thrilled the door shelves have their fronts! Can’t wait to fill it up and hit the road.
