Exactly. It will take a second person to help pull it out. I'm thinking I'll put together some sort of stand for it to sit on. It would be nice to have the mattress off the bed (19' here) so I could put it there temporarily to get some working space. Maybe I can stand the mattress up on edge.

And to think I was contemplating building up some sort of baffle working between the top and bottom vents. Idle thoughts while driving along, not based in reality.....

The question that begs to be asked is whether the fridge was installed as per
Dometic clearance requirements. My owners package did not come with the
installation manual for the fridge to check this. Also, I agree that the baffle
installation would be difficult for one person and definitely would require
more than one hour, at least for me and on the first time. Anxious to see how
this scenario develops.

Can the frig fix information be separated from the poor cooling and baffle information ?
Reace's last post concerning the baffle performance, see post 20:

I don't want to speak for Reace here but the impression I got when we talked about it is that dometic changed or perhaps updated their specs and this baffle is to acomidate that

I was going to post what ETI sent out but the file is to large (933kb) to upload to the forum (will only allow 400kb for PDF). I cant figure out how to reduce the size without lowering the resolution of the pictures and they need to be clear. It has several pictures and maybe that's why ETI has not posted it.

Maybe someone else that received it can do it.

I hope so, I'd really like to see it. My 19 is early 2014, about the time of the change, according so Reace's comment. I have no idea of whether or not my has it or doesn't.

Photos would be nice.

"...My question is how can one person remove that refer, alone, in such cramped space, work on it and then reinstall, all by themselves??"

EXACTO-mundo! Easy my foot, and a great opportunity to seriously mar up the cabinetry.
