Residential Fridge Replacement

So, I saw a thread a little while ago about replacing the fridge with a bigger one, and trimming the panel next to it. Now that I want to further research it, I can't find it....anyone remember where it was? I'm not even sure if it was here or IRV2, but I'm after the model of fridge that fit thru the door and was bigger than 18 CF.

aknavy,, I think you may be asking about this facebook post....

Just wanted to share my experience of adding a larger fridge in my 2015 34RL. As you can see from the pic of the old fridge there is not much room for a bigger fridge without removing the trim. I found the trim was 2 layers. The top is glued on to the base, just carefully pry it of and the base is then screwed in. I will use the thin piece of trim that was on the side of the large pieces to trim out the left side, The fridge it level, but the gap on top is not, so that will take some creative decorating. Hope this helps someone trying to upgrade.

Itís my understanding that the slide has to be removed to replace the fridge
