How to Remove an RV Refrigerator

RV refrigerators come in a wide variety of sizes and styles. Your choice will be influenced by the capacity you need to store food and drink, your budget and how much space you have in your RV kitchen. You may also need to consider whether you need a dual-powered fridge and what power sources you will use in your RV (e.g., electric or gas).

If your RV refrigerator is not cooling, check the fuses in the refrigerator circuit breaker to make sure they haven’t blown. Also, make sure the 120-volt AC refrigerator power cord is plugged in and that it is getting its proper voltage. If the refrigerator still isn’t cooling, it could be a problem with the cooling coils themselves. You can test this by opening the refrigerator and looking inside for a hint of an ammonia smell or yellow residue on the back that indicates it’s time to call your RV technician for repairs or replacement.

To begin removing your RV refrigerator, turn off the power and gas to the fridge, and disconnect any LP gas lines. Then, go inside and remove the plastic caps that cover the screws holding your fridge in place (there are usually 4-6 of them). You’ll also need to remove any caulking that is keeping the fridge in place. Once the refrigerator is removed, it’s important that you take care not to damage your RV’s window and to secure the new fridge well enough that it won’t move around when you’re driving down the road.
