Well having to send the whirlpool back as too tall according to my RV installer as it 68.5 inches and what I thought was extra 6 inch space above current Dometic that sits on top of furnace is not open usable space but some type boxed topper to ceiling. He said I need around 64.5 so downsizing to a 15.1 cu GE which is a top freezer and smaller than 19.7 French door type that I wanted. Bummer

I am also looking into a residential. My Dometic is over a furnace, probably like yours. Yes 64.5" is a comfortable fit as to a direct replacement to the current fridge. I was figuring to remove the wood above and place the new unit close to the ceiling. I'd like to put a 68.5" unit in and it appears that I may have to lower the floor above the furnace about an inch. Is there anyone out there with a similar setup that has put a 68.5" fridge in?

According to my Rv tech he said the wood above cannot be removed as it has some type of purpose. Trying to find out if anyone knows as that is about 5 inches I could have used to install French door

I just learned a lesson this very morning and my neighbor camper in an Allegro Bus learned it the hard way. He figured what fridge would fit and which window to get it in. However, his fridge is in a hallway and even with the fridge's doors off, it could not go into the hallway, so that it could be pushed into the cavity.

Texas Realtor, my 2012BH fridge is mid-ship, across from the TV. Just opposite the fridge is an l-shaped hallway which has a 33" width and a 23.25" width. Is yours the same? I do not know if a new fridge can be cocked enough to avoid the 23.25" wall.

Replace Dometic refrigerator with residential

Got the Dometic Refrigerator pulled out!! Bye bye crazy temps!! Added French door whirlpool. Found only one electric plug on wall behind where frig goes and it is not connected to inverter so guess I need to stay plugged in while parked or use generator on road to keep constant cool. Don't know why Forest River would not have that electrical box connected for inverter. Anyone know if that is GFCI plug as back vent opening conducive to rain or water getting to the frig plug??
