PS: The rig in my profile is not what I'm currently in. I have to update everything. I'm in a travel trailer now.

Replacing AC; can a 15k btu go where a 13.5k btu used to be?

I got a great deal on a used roof AC but after the guy delivered it to me, the sheer size of its footprint has me concerned. Is this not going to work or will it be okay?

RE: Poked a hole in the wall of my refrigerator. Is it toast?

Wow. Yesterday I decided to shut the power off to the refrigerator since it wasn't working anyway. I thought maybe it would start again after a break. (???) Today I decided to open the door up a bit so it won't get icky inside and I smelled something horrible. I'm guessing that is the gas you guys said I would smell if it was truly beyond hope. I don't know why it took so long for the smell to appear, but WOW. It's there now. Smells like ammonia or something awful. I had to close the door again to keep the gas from leaking out. Well, I now have my answer.

RE: Poked a hole in the wall of my refrigerator. Is it toast?

It's not working. All power is going to it, all lights are lit, nothing's cooling. I haven't gone out and removed the cover to inspect the back yet but I will. I have lived in an RV for over 6 years now so I'm sure that the reason it was having trouble cooling was directly related to the excessive amount of ice that had built up on the fins. I'm a procrastinator and I should have done it sooner. Once I had this experience in a Class C that I lived in (the one in my signature line. I had just defrosted it.) I discovered that it was due to me moving the thermister to another fin than the one it was supposed to be on, not knowing that it mattered. But I found out it was supposed to be on the "7th fin from the right" by the manufacturer that I contacted. After that, it worked perfectly. I'm thinking it's something like that but I'm failing in my troubleshooting. Thank you all for your suggestions. I will update when I have something to add. For now, I am in an RV park and was able to find room in the freezer and fridge up at the clubhouse, and I have several coolers to keep things that I need often close at hand. I'm hoping I find the answer and that it's something simple, like the last time with the other RV. Fingers and toes crossed. Like I said, I'll update when I find out what came of this situation. Thanks again. PS: I've checked the fuses and they're fine. And the power is present, like I said.

RE: Poked a hole in the wall of my refrigerator. Is it toast?

If it's not the hole (in the side, not the back), then why will it not get cold? I defrosted it because it was struggling to stay in the mid-low 40's, now it's almost 60 in there and I'm about to go up to the ice machine down the street and fill up a few coolers. There is a thermister thing on one of the fins and I'm playing with that to see if that would help but it only continually gets warmer. I've tried propane over electric and nothing helps. Food is too expensive these days to lose a whole freezer full of meat.

Poked a hole in the wall of my refrigerator. Is it toast?

Defrosted it yesterday and went to put the shelves back in. One of them wouldn't go in and I struggled and struggled and ended up poking one end into the wall of the fridge. Now it's not cooling adequately to keep my food from spoiling. Am I screwed or do you think the problem might be something else? BTW, I didn't try to remove that wire that went through the wall, fearing I would make the hole much worse. I put duct tape over the hole as best as I could. Read that can be done on another forum. I fear I am screwed.
