I appreciate the offer but since I'm in Cincinnati shipping costs would make that pretty expensive. Thanks anyway.

Thanks was worth a shot... we got a Vissani from Home Depot fit ours with minimal trimming on the side.

That's exactly the model I was looking at. How is it working out for you? Any tips on covering the access panel and roof vent? It seems that's the direction we're heading. After I replace this one I'll have a Norcold to tinker with and maybe come up with a work-around to patent LOL.

Is the reefer still under warranty? The appliances usually have a longer warranty then the trailer. If it is still under warranty see who the local repair person is for the Norcold fridge and have them do the warranty work.
No more warranty. 2 years ran out 6 months ago. Figures. Haven't decided to call the on-site repairmen yet. Not sure it's worth the investment when weighed against buying a residential unit.

I leave tho top open and tape the vent holes as well as hard foam insulation, also a little soft foam top and bottom to keep drafts out

Sounds like a plan. Getting it through the door will be a trick but I'm looking forward to getting rid of this Norcold money pit.

Not sure of your layout but two guys is probably a good idea ours went right in after a little shaving on the side it also helps to put it on something infront of the hole we used a milk crate on its side same height as our shelf for it.

I'll have the manpower with the neighbor's help and I'm a pretty good woodworker so I see no problems. Depends on how long I feel like messing with the Norcold.

Did yours fit through your door very well? I think my door is barely 24" wide.
