Looks Great! My 2011/2012 Norcold is still limping along but if it fails I will go the same route. Did you do the work yourself?

Dometic now has a compressor driven RV fridge that runs on 110VAC or 12VDC. That would eliminate the need for an inverter. The compressor is variable speed so if not opened a lot it could minimize the draw on 12V. Still runs on Propane too (not sure how)

Only a 6 and 8 cf right now, but won't take long to catch up with the others. I wonder if they will be able to compete with the residential style + inverter on new RVs.

They are nice and will be great with Solar. But I don't see that the Americana runs on propane. In fact given that it operates on a 30 degree angle I am almost sure it won't operate on propane.
