The installation is now complete!
; This morning I installed the new Nova Kool refrigerator in my 19', completed the trim details in front, finished terminating the wiring and turned it on. I am very pleased with how it turned out and my wife is very happy as well. Wow! It came out great and started cooling like crazy the second it was turned on. We will probably replace the black door panels later but right now I want to do some real world testing...but first I have a major cleanup job to complete. I've even got sawdust on the camera lens...
Here are some pictures of the finished installation.
The refer is trimmed out with black screw covers and a piece of wooden trim top and bottom.
This is a 7.3 cu ft Nova Kool refrigerator, 3.0 cu ft bigger than the 4.3 cu ft Dometic unit we removed. No more extra cooler for our drinks and now we can bring more frozen food! The refrigerator door has a very generous opening above the bed and the freezer opens to a little more than 90 degrees...all good!!! It is nice having the refer on top where we can look directly into it and the freezer is on the bottom which will get used much less often.
It will also be nice to be able to access the compressor and supply wiring from the lower access vent.
Overall, I couldn't be happier about the outcome of this project. I will keep you posted on my real world testing. I need to confirm that my solar and battery capacities are sufficient.
