Above fridge?

Anyone tried to see what's behind the panel above the double door fridge in a Roo 19? Wondering if its claimable space...

Yeah, we saw that on one we looked at, but ours has the 2 door fridge/freezer, and a 6 inch false panel above. DH thinks there must be a vent to the roof back there somewhere... Do you think your cabinets are full fridge depth?

I don't remember what model the guy had, but someone on the forums had turned that space into a custom made cabinet for wine. It looked really cool with a plexiglass front and blue LEDs.

I saw that post too, he did an awesome job on it. Cut the panel out, at worst you will have to do a DYI repair on that panel?

I did the same (Stole the idea shamelessly). Turned it into a small wine rack.
Don't need to do any cutting to remove the panel. It's held on by wire brads. Not hard to remove.

Thanks all, still trying to convince DH to open it. He took out the false panel in the corner unit by the door and added an open shelf there, but was comfortable doing so because you could see up inside the cabinet first to tell it was empty - unlike the fridge. He wouldn't take the leap of faith. I said the same as Uncle Buck - worst case we recover it, but he wouldn't bite. I'll show him these and see if it helps!

I'm sure mine is about the same, and I have a few spots o want to check out. You guys say it's easy to remove the panel.... how are you doing it? Just pushing prying it in with pressure?

Used a paint scraper to get it started, then carefully pushed it in to remove it. I kept the panel in case I stop drinking wine some time in the future.
