Some are having some problems. But a lot are not. We have had ours for a few years and never a blink. Never been turned off. Runs off the old Heat MS inverter. We have ours set to the lowest fridge and freezer temperatures. Makes lot of ice.

We've had ours five years. We use it six months out of the year. It did freeze some water on the back in the freezer, and some water ran down in the upper part, but I read here about the kit to fix this. It is a longer metal strip that runs deeper into the drain behind that panel Kurt is talking about. Never had a problem since.

Kev - Re post #93, here are pics in our layout ('93 with shower behind fridge wall). My shower drain is the holding item relative to how far I can push the fridge in but moving it would only provide about another inch. We removed the bottom drawer but just shortened the upper cabinet.

Terry, on my coach I set the fridge up on a platform about the thickness of a 2x4. This allowed the upper door to fully open over the top of the booth backrest. When I first put it in it was like yours and a real PIA to get to anything on that side of the fridge. That elevation made a world of difference. Mine also set back in further than yours, but my shower is on the opposite wall, so maybe it wouldn't make any difference for you, on the set back.

Old fridge should be ready to pull out tonight
Not overjoyed to have bought another fridge after only 2 1/2 years
But if you want one get it now, because the Supreme Court sez the states can charge tax on internet sales. Worlds gettin smaller folks.
Got this one for $1099.00 delivered
Ordered it today will have it in the AM
Gitter Done ✅
Glutton for punishment
But it’s still half the cost of replacing a Dometic 70-30 or is it 30-70
Who cares that thing is still on the scrap pile
Every time I walk past it I throw a rock at it
The old RF-18 will be relagated to keg duty in the Birds Nest

Have any of you seen and do any of you have any experience with a product advertised in the FMCA magazine to convert your present gas/electric into a gas/electric that will work like a residential refrigerator or convert it 100% into a residential electric refrigerator that runs on 1 amp either way with their $200 give or take parts. They have videos on the internet for DIY people or you can drive to their offices and they will install the parts.

Since I installed a dedicated 1000watt psw inverter, 4 years ago, the Samsung refrigerator has worker flawlessly. I have never had the icing issue. The added benefit is that when we stay out boondocking the only inverter we run is the one for the fridge.
I am very happy with the fridge, but did have issues running it on the Heart inverters. The 1000 watt inverter was not expensive, maybe $300. I wired it into the transfer relays, so when the bus is plugged in or the generator is running it automatically switches to shore or generator power. Otherwise it runs on the dedicated psw inverter.
