Thanks.

1 question: I don't understand how it can be slightly smaller than the width of the opening. Doesn't it have to be larger than the opening, and attached behind the framing?

There was about an 1" of trim framing on the front. The panel was not wall to wall.

OK. I only seem to remember the framing shown in your pic, no trim. But it's in storage at the moment. I'll have to look harder next time I'm camping.

Thanks.

Just checked my unit, I can independently control the volume on Zone 1 & 2 and then Zone 3. You can also have Zone 3 on a different input. You could play music inside on 1 & 2 and the TV on 3 outside. Just take some work getting used too, even when I think I have it all figured out.

No problem. We did some sanding for sure. I think there might have been a top piece and bottom piece edge strips we discarded. Left the side pieces. Memory is foggy on that part. These things are just slapped together by the manufacturer so nothing is square, they only thing they are generous with are the glue and staples.

My 2011 georgetown 327DS had, I believe, a space like that on top of the fridge and around 1"-1.5" free space on the sides. I discovered, during my first outing, that the fridge would run 24x7 attempting to cool but would never get below 55F. The dealer checked things out after I returned and discovered that the fridge was working properly but the problem was the installation.

The free space around the sides and on top was being heated by the sun striking the outside of the RV. The temperature of the air surrounding the fridge was well over 120F and was just more than the fridge's insulation could handle. The dealer fixed the problem by filling in all of the free space with insulation since the fridge installation instructions stated that it's a zero clearance on all sides unit. We've had no problems keeping things cool, even when in NM where daytime temperatures often reach over 100F and the sun is shining on the fridge side of the RV.

The space above the fridge is valuable space and doesn't get hot (at least in my 233s). Use it as open storage, or something creative.

Wine anyone?
