My Dometic RM2852 needs to be replaced. Does anyone know what I have to order to replace it that will fit in the same opening? Thanks for your help.

I agree with Boon Docker don't replace the whole thing just the cooling unit.

Other wise go to the Dometic web page and read the size specs.. Most of them are one of 3 sizes. But I'd replace the cooling unit.. in fact.. I did.

I had the same refrigerator on one of my 2015 RVs stop cooling. Here is a great post you definitely should read in it's entirety. It should save you some $$$ and illustrate that it is fairly easy to replace your cooling unit if it is bad.

I wouldn't say it's "quite easy" to replace a cooling unit. Most RV Repair shops won't even do it anymore because it's so much work. Having said that my buddy and I (mainly him with my help) have replaced two so far. RV Enthusiast Magazine May 2021 has a full breakdown on how to do this.

I have been replacing Cooling units for 42 years. For me, It is as easy as pie. I can replace a 4 door 1200 Norcold Cooling unit is less than 2.5 hours. A standard 6 or 8 CF 2 door in about 1.5 hours. Where do you get your knowledge that "Most RV repair shops won't do it anymore"? The PROFIT is extremely worth while for some shops. The use rebuilt and charge almost as much as new for the part and charge from 4.0 to 6.0 hours labor. If the shop states it is too much work, I would NEVER have them work on anything for my RV. Doug

Not sure why you think it is a lot of work, took me less than a hour to replace mine.
