Hi: rbryan4... Another "Cheerleader" here. When I was in the auto biz there were just some people I wished I had never sold to. They wouldn't be happy with a Rolls. Alf

Oliver uses Dometic R2554 fridges in their smaller models. I've sold some owners fridge button guards to prevent accidentally changing the settings.

That's fine if you're interested in a small 4 cubic foot refrigerator. I'm not.

Dometic RM2454 Americana Fridge

so there is a new mounting method for solar panels in the 2017 models and it has resolved any past issues? if so that's good news.

Thanks for the link. RM 2454 is 24 7/8 wide by 24 11/16 deep, according to the install manual. The door on my 19 is 22 1/2 wide, don't think that would make it. Possibly if the fridge door was removed, would be interesting to know that measurement.
Jubal any possibility you could get that measurement?

Thanks

Dave

You stumpted me, Jubal. Where's Oliver getting this model? Camping World doesn't list it. They do have an "Elite" on sale for $2,799.97 but it don't seem to be an RM2454 and they don't give its dimentions. Dometic does mention an Americana single door RM2454, but it is a whopping 4.28 cu.ft.

Hi: MyronL... I think it's an amalgam of two models. Legacy Elite II is the trailer...RM2454 is the fridge. Too small for my beerholder. Alf
