Replacing an RV refrigerator Myssi 8-20-08  
This is our first RV. It is a 22' 1978 Dodge Shasta. The refrigerator doesn't work. My husband wants to replace it with a small dorm-size frige from Walmart. Is this even feasible? The frige in there now runs off of electric or gas. The previous owners never used the gas to run it.
Any suggestions would be great. I would like to just have the frige fixed but...
Thanks for any help!

It's been 2 months, so I hope this isn't too late. We have a new $1200 propane/ac RV fridge... unfortunately our solar power system disagrees with it(it's an energy hog) and we opted to install the locking Frigidaire from Lowes. Same size as Walmarts, about $40 more. The fit was very similar, but gave us some room up top for storage. We opted to keep the existing venting as these dorm fridges do get a bit warm. We are using weatherstripping to seal the fore part of the fridge and leaving the rest as is to allow circulation/venting. Only other thing to change was adding stays at the feet to keep it from moving while we were going down the road. Hope that helps.
