Hi hope the repairs happen in a timely fashion. I have some questions about what happened when the fridge did the face plant into the couch.

1. Were the propane tanks turned on or off when this happened?

2. If propane was on was the fridge turned on?

3. Did the propane lines fail when the fridge fell over?

The reason I am asking these questions is that there has been a lot of discussions in the past on this forum about running the fridge on propane while driving to your next destination.

Looks like a residential refer not a regular propane RV type. Many new RV have gone to the residential types.

Curious how long you've had the unit and how many miles it has on it, that it didn't happen your first time out, or the drive home from the dealer for that matter.

We put our own residential in last year. In doing so, across the back / bottom framing, I put 4 long #12 screws. Of course you can only do this if you have an access panel to the back of the fridge. Some manf. are kind enough to do so. At the inner top, I riveted L-brackets to the top of the fridge, then secured those into the cabinet framing once the fridge was in. The brackets are hidden by trim. I've seen some of the factory "securing", and it was less than on par. Always good to check if you can.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Residential unit, runs on an inverter. Our last RV had the propane unit style. We ALWAYS ran the propane during transport.

I've got about 2500 miles on the unit according to my mileage tracker on the truck. Didn't drive any different than I had driven the other 2000 plus miles. The only difference I noticed was the road. The tollway we took had some spots in it that made us bounce. Nothing severe but certainly noticeable and definitely not enough that I would have expected this.

Guess I should add I have over 20 years of trailer experience. This is my first 5er but I don't think that should matter.

Thats really poor that they didn't fasten that frig inside the wall cabinet as they should have. Hold their feet to the fire and no matter how minor the damage make them fix it like new.

Here's a good setup, two flat bars flanged to wall with backers, inboard end screws to hinge plates on reefer. Very solid.
