Wanting to add residential refrigerator

My Dometic is too unstable on temp as some days 32 degrees than wake up next morning and 50. Wife does not like. I am wanting to pull it and add 19.7 French door whirlpool that 68.5 inches tall as they sit on furnace in my 2011 berk 39bh and I thought I had extra 6 inch space above current Dometic but found some type of casing and cannot get height to ceiling I want. Any suggestions on what that is and how I can do this. My Rv tech said I need a 64 inch high refrigerator as that makes very small 15 cu top freezer which is bummer for mod I wanted to do.

looking at Lowe's website, they have 114 refrigerators between 62 and 65.5 inches, in top freezer, bottom freezer and french door models. Just watch the depth too. You will likely want counter depth.

Would be cheaper to add fans inside and outside the frig. I did and it maintains 33 -36 in frig and 4-6 in freezer.

You also will need an Inverter that will supply the 120 volts for the residential refrigerator.

I have a 18 Cu. Ft residential refrigerator in our Cedar Creek and an option of a 20 Cu. Ft SS with Inverter is available from Forest River also. You might be able to contact Forest River for a refrigerator for your needs. Just a thought.

Dual fans hanging off the cooling fans inside and dual fans blowing up from the very bottom of the frig on the outside. All 4 fans are on anytime the frig is on whether on gas or electric.
