Our 95 Palomino pop up camper fridge is in need of replacement. Now that the dorm style fridges are on sale I thought I would take on the project. Silly me assumed it would be as easy as unplugging the old and plugging in the new.
It seems I will have to cut off the 3 prong plug and attach the wires to the existing outlet. First I'm wondering if this can be done with just a 1.7 cu. ft. dorm fridge? The existing fridge is a 'Dandy' brand 115v fridge the only thing I'm concerned with is the old fridge has a pretty long cord and I'm afraid the dorm fridge cord will be shorter, I'm getting ahead of myself. First and foremost is this a safe thing to do if the voltage from both fridges is the same? Any other reasons why I couldnt attempt this?
