I bought the exact model, Dometic 2652. I figured that way I was more likely to not need to alter the gas line, Everthing is sure to fit and I can rob lots of good spare parts from the old one that should work on the new one.

The only way to have more interior volume and the same exterior volume is to reduce the insulation volume.

They may be using more efficient insulation

Replaced the failed 2652 cooling unit in my 2000 Bigfoot in 2014. Went with the Amish new cooling unit and it performs.....33 degrees in 115 ambient in Phoenix. I did add internal fin fans and fans up at the top exit on the roof.

I would have replaced just the cooling unit but the interior of the refrigerator compartment was all yellowed so we wanted to eliminate that.

Our RM2652 Would struggle in the Texas July and August heat. We went with a 10 cu.ft. Frigidaire residential. DW is very happy . Much roomier and cooling is great.
