Upgrades and Modifications / Refrigerator upgrade
« on: August 14, 2018, 04:34:17 PM »
I own a 2017 TBS. it has the single door fridge with cabinet above. Iím dreaming about putting the two door fridge in (more freezer space). Anyone have any thoughts ie:
1- model # that will fit width and depth
2- Will the existing access/vent panel on the back of trailer be in the right place (not gonna do if different fridge means serious body mods besides removing upper cupboard)
3- my trailer has 2 panels on the back -lower for heater, upper for fridge. On pictures of newer models that have the two door fridge it seems there is only one access panel on back of trailer?? Did they move the heater location to fit larger fridge? I assume the larger fridge would just be installed in same access as smaller one (on top of heater, and by removal of upper cabinet)??
4- how does one go about getting the alpine door faces to match (not a deal breaker if it is just black or stainless
5- Iím pretty handy and have handy friends, but is this a mod that needs to go to a camplite dealer/shop?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Sorry for the delay in reply. I do not have measurements anymore, just built to fit after installing 2 sets of wooden drawer slide supports from front cabinet aluminum square tubing to back. I do remember having to shim out one side of these supports (think it was the right/sink side) so drawer slides would pull past cabinet facing.

I lurk but have never posted. I appreciate all the advice I have gleaned from otherís mods and upgrades, and Iím also proud of what Iíve done so far, so thought it was time I participated.
Photo 1: removable computer desk. Birch veneer ply and Cedar. Hooks over the back of the far dinette seat back and sleeves onto the table post. Sturdier than that table for sure!
Photo 2: Cedar shelf with USB (with on/off rocker switch - no parasitic drain!) at end of overhead cabinets. The edging is about 1/4Ē proud of each shelf to keep things up there.
Photo 3: Cedar shelf between upper cabinet and TV wall. Great place for remotes, DVDs, books and such.
Photo 4 & 5: 2 - Cedar and birch veneer ply full slide drawers in cabinet under stove.
Photo 6: Cedar shelf under stereo with USB, 12v socket, and voltmeter (with on/off rocker switch - I hate parasitic drain). This charges and holds my iPod connected to stereo thru aux/headphone port. We travel with about 5-6 USB charging devices so I think we have enough now.
I also added a shore power dual USB and wall socket between the twin beds (piggying over from end of bed socket wiring in pump/hot water compartment). We use the space between the twin beds as a night stand/table so needed charging there. Can you tell we are attached to our devices... LOL
Photo 7: The stereo on our 16TBS is installed at end of kitchen cabinet facing fridge. The remote is sight line... stupid.... canít control DVD or stereo from anywhere but 2 feet from unit... who needs a remote then? did I say stupid? We mostly watch TV from beds... so I installed a decorative mirror on cabinet above fridge. Now my remote works from the left bed or computer desk.
Photo 8: The under cabinet/ over head Installed LED lights are impossible to use for reading in bed. So I installed these small goose neck LED units directly behind each one.
Photo 9: installed a back up camera (pretty standard mod I know, but, I travel solo a lot for trout fishing and photography so this is a must have- althoí I must admit it is tricky with my dyslexia... but, any help I can get backing into spots is appreciated!)
Thanks for letting me share, and for all everyone else has shared. I hope to do the bumper reinforcement upgrade soon!
