John E Davies Posted May 11, 2018 Share Posted May 11, 2018 Overland and SeaDawg, and anybody else who has knowledge or first hand experience, please comment. I am interested in plugging the two gaping holes in the side of the hull and also eliminating one potential fire hazard, the propane line into that area. I would love to see more pics like this from Overland: Please talk about what you learned from: Initial research Problems during the installation Tips for an easier installation How to neatly block off the outside openings What you have learned AFTER installing it - using the fridge What brands/ models work best in an Ollie, What brands to avoid. I have owned a portable ARB fridge for several years and like it a lot, so this is not completely new territory. I just hope that I can become educated here. I am currently interested in the Nova Kool F5800, mostly because it will fit nicely in the existing opening. The required cutout is 32 H x 23.25 W x 23.25 to 22" D (adjustable support frame). The Dometic RM2454 (my unit) opening: 36.5 H x 24.01 W x 23.7" D. So the new unit is shorter by 4.5 inches but otherwise really close. The Dometic is 4.0 cu ft, the nova Kool is 5.8 Cu ft, a huge incrrease.

And that is about the extent of my knowledge about Nova Kool. For those of you wondering why we are even interested in this stuff, please watch: ... Please discuss.
