It wasn't a hard push at all. Very gentle in fact. So I was curious if anyone else had this rocking issue and if so, did you get it repaired and what did they do to eliminate the rocking?
Thanks

Tom here's two straps on top of res fridge that should answer your question. The bars flange up at outside wall and flange down on fridge casing below hinge upper caps.

Maybe pretty close but Res has 2X the cubic space and much larger footprint for stability.

Vince,
Did yours come that way or were the straps installed later? If installed later, who did the install?
Thanks

This what I used for the doors on our last trip, Velcro strap. The bungee cords that were install from factory still allow the door to open if things shift inside and going around a corner. Click image for larger version

Klucas, in addition to fridge you will also probably need a bigger inverter unless you already have that capacity. Residential fridge options usually include a 2000 watt inverter upgrade.

Thank you for the info. I don't have the larger inverter. We don't do any dry camping and usually run the generator while driving. I am assuming that will be ok. Any advice on getting the unit in the coach and any tips on making installation easier?

I really don't know anything about the swap, but with the question posed, I think that their are enough people on the forum that can help. Anyone have any advice here?

If you do a search you should find at least one thread on this. I think that one poster removed the window over the sofa and brought it in that way. If I remember correctly, another posted that they removed doors and took out the freezer draw and was able to get it in through the door. They said it took 2 guys to do it and had to maneuver it around to get it in. Don't remember if they had to take out the passenger seat but if you go that route, I think that I would so that it makes it easier to get in and you won't damage the seat. This is just my recollection of their posts. Hopefully you will be able to find the original posts.

Well it depends on what Moho model you have. I had my Dometic replaced this year and it is a booger. They used the drivers side living room window for access. I have a 2011 RB. They also had to Denice the cabinets over the window and also the cornices. Removed the door to the fridge and handed it out the window onto a fork truck. Removing the cabinet was a PIA. Once in people do different things to power it. The simplest is to just run the fridge when plugged in or run the gen when driving. Second is buy a inverter and wire it in behind the fridge so it is stand alone and only for the fridge. Third is to rewrite the plug already there so it is running off the existing inverter. And last install a new inverter and run power to the plug behind the fridge. I'm sure there are more options but those are the ones I found when I was considering making that change.
