New Help with Dometic RM2193 Fridge

Good day Troops,

I have a 2008 Palomino Pony 280 with a three-way Dometic RM2193 Fridge.

The Fridge is not cooling. I'm only using it on AC so If I cant fix it, I will just replace it.

I confirmed I have AC Power to the unit but it is not cooling. I wanted to take it out so I can get it to a shop for an estimate or put a new one in the same hole.

I cant seem to get it out of the trailer. I have disconnected the gas fitting, I have disconnected the DC power and unplugged the AC power.

There were two screws at the rear bottom holding the unit in place at the back and 6 screws on the front (3 each side). Thats all I can see.

I cant seem to budge the unit - Am I missing something?

According to the manual there should only be the eight screws that you found holding it in. Is there caulking around the cabinet on the outside? If not then it just may be wedged in the cabinet.

Have you tried replacing just the AC heating element? or tried to use it on propane to just check if the frig will cool. Just a thought and seems easier and cheaper then removal and replacement.
