I found that both upper and lower cabinets for the fridge area were that way.
The bottom cabinet is held by 4 screws - 2 on each side. There was only a little bit of caulk and it actually came loose fairly easily. I will get it removed as soon as I can figure out how to get the last 2 screws out (they are not cooperating). I can already move the whole thing up and down fairly easily outside of where the 2 screws are still in place.

The top cabinet has angle brackets on either side of the back. There are 4 screws on each side and another 4 screws on the back of the cabinet. I cannot, however, see what is holding the front in place. I'm skeptical its just caulk given how solid it is but I might be wrong (won't be the first nor last time). I can't actually see any caulk to cut for that matter. If the answer is to remove the rear angle brackets first then I can do that.

Its listed at 70.125" tall. Right now, I'm at 69.5" from base to bottom of top cabinet.
Jonathan, if you have a chance, take some picture of the control box. I think it was mover from the top to the back.

I haven't actually purchased it yet. I need to get the space ready - or close to it - before buying. My plan is to have the delivery guys put it in the coach for me. So, I need everything ready to allow them to put it in there.

I will note that the pictures I have seen do have a small control box on the top front. I'm not sure if that's the one you are referring to or not. That's where you set the temperatures and the various controls for the refrigerator. Based on other pictures I have seen, that box goes back about 4-5 inches and then the refrigerator drops back to 68.75". If that box wasn't there, I think I could put it in there without even touching my top cabinet. Oh well!

If you look at the picture with the doors open you can see the controls at the top inside the doors.

I think if I had it to do over again, I'd get the model with the ice and water in the door. The reason is that when the ice is made in the freezer, while making ice it goes down to about -20 degrees, making ice cream very hard to scoop. The repairman said that is normal. Perhaps it is more a question of where do you need the space, up or down. The ice in the door version may take more power as it uses heat to drop the ice cubes, whereas the repair guy said in the freezer it uses mechanical force by twisting. Sounds pretty old fashioned, but that is what he said.

Twisted ice makes better vodka drinks!

Now there's a concept, twisted ice. Patent it, Randy, you might make a fortune. ...well, forget it, you might want to buy a Prevost, and that just wouldn't seem right.

No prevost for me Ron.
I like dirt roads and i hear that if you have a prevost you can't drive on dirt roads?
I'm really liking my 35' Bird.
If only i had time to finish it!

No, not talking about the fridge operating controls, I was referring to the control boards. They were mounted in a little flat box, center of the top very back, about an inch or so. and was highest point in the back. Others have said it is no longer there, and repair manuals refer to it being on the back, near the top.

Based on what I have seen, there isn't one there any more on the top.
