The RML8555 had the wire shelves. The RMD uses the plastic.

Jim,

Did you have to mount the panels flush with the metal shelves in order to get the door to close (assuming you left the door trays in place)? Also, did you drill holes in the side walls to secure the bars in place? Thanks!

Rich

I find that the sloped roof on the 5.0TA helps the up draft chimney effect on all but the most still days and we limit the MaxxFan exhausting to keep the air from being sucked out of the fridge. I am determined to make it work!!! Alf

Found the plastic cup and it was full so emptied it. Guess it usually drains through that hole down there. For anyone doing this, the metal equipment there is hot, so be careful.
Thanks, Alf!! Have not used the dryer yet but will.

Hi: float5... The hole in the floor inside the fridge vent is for propane venting I think. Since it's heavier than air propane will fall out if there is a leak behind the fridge. Any water on that floor should evaporate like it will out of the cup. The cup on our single door fridge has a slot in the corner to hold the clear tube in it!!!
I'm still looking for some kind of "P" trap for the end of the water pipe, but it's so tiny. Alf

The kit came with some velcro tabs with sticky on one side, you fold them in half and cut a "V" at the bend and open you have a small opening. You apply the sticky side inside the refer where you want to locate the steel rods and the velcro keeps the rods in place.

Thanks. What about having to mount them flush with the shelves to allow for clearance for the door shelves?

You want it as far back as possible to keep things on the shelves, so yes position the bars which also have velcro on them to hold the panels in place as far back to touch the shelf, should not have any clearance issues.
