Seemed to work. That fridge had the clip on the fins to adjust the original thermister up and down for temp adjustment. I just never could find the sweet spot. Figured for $26, I wasn't out much if it didn't work. The fridge I have now is roof vented / non slide. Though it has a thermister, it also has the 1-5 adjustment by the controls. I haven't had any problems with this one, yet. Still contemplating gutting it for a small residential / inverter set up, just to do away with the RV fridge / exterior and roof vent set up.

Residential fridg would be nice but the condenser side if the residential would add to the heat load inside your RV not to mention the weight. Might make a difference in the warmer climates.

They are actually lighter believe it or not. Been looking at it for years. You'd have to see the actual unit we have picked out and compare side by side. Consider the fact, that the Cedar Creeks have that option already, the Silverbacks do not. I think the 36B4 (The same floor plan as we have that they quit making in the Cedar Creek), had the residential fridge, it was just not a huge one.

Well, it continues. Get all the way to Tennessee, and awning won't even grunt. Tried pulling on it while wife hit switch, nothing. Pulled momentary switch, all good. Fuse still good. Plan on having mobile service come look Monday. Long term fix; I'll be chunking it and putting a 9100 MANUAL awning on it soon. Tired of wondering when stuff will fail. All my previous manual ones were way more reliable.

Good gosh john. I had thought about trading and maybe upgrading my camper but I am scared I might end up in your situation.

At least we both try to fix what we got and make the most of it. I have wondered many times if I couldn't make a better trailer from a car hauler or a horse trailer.

Hope it all ends up good for u. Enjoy ur time off.
