I found a parts list for the larger fridge here: RML8555 Parts
BUT when I tried to call them to order the part I got "number no longer in service" so I saved the page with the parts list to my PC.

US Dometic will sell to you directly: Spare Parts - Dometic
I called them at 1-800-544-4881 but they want $77.20.

In case it is not apparent from the other responses...
yes, the 6.7 cubic foot refrigerator is a 3-way from Dometic.

Even if its rated power consumption is the same as a smaller unit it will consume more energy, because it will need to move more heat gained through its larger cabinet. I wouldn't worry about that, as refrigerators use relatively little propane compared to furnaces and water heaters, and on "shore power" electricity the 100 watts or so it not important.

Many thanks for your help ... I guess bigger is better for two adults and two kids. Glad it's a Dometic 3-way -- great results from their products in the past. With the bigger fridge, is the microwave installed under the stove?

That is what we did. And added 2 drawers in the wardrobe closet to replace the 2 drawers you lose.

After our first camping season with our 19', which has the 6.7 cu-ft fridge (with 2 drawers below wardrobe), we found the size of the fridge to be more than adequate. We typically travelled with two adults and two nearly grown teens, and spent up to a week at a time without reprovisioning. For us, a smaller fridge would likely have been not quite enough, or would have required either more frequent trips to the store, or greater reliance on non refrigerated foods (or eat out more often). Not having a microwave is no hardship for us.
