Replacing the Norcold refrigerator with an all-electric compressor model has both its advantages and disadvantages. Chief amongst the advantages are the much more responsive cooling and freezing systems, significantly less heat discharge, greater reliability, and usually a larger refrigerator. The disadvantages are the lack of the capability of running on gas or DC when desired, the requirement for a large capacity inverter in order to operate while driving, and the problems with fitting the new refrigerator into the existing cut-out without making major modifications to the finished appearance.
Apparently fitting into the HD with its "washed maple" cabinetry is the easiest. The FD and especially the QD models are somewhat more difficult because of the limited cabinet cut-out size.
Popular models being used include the 2.7 cu. ft Haier HSP03WNABPG available at Wal-Mart, about $100. There are other models of Haier with similar dimension but they are not carried at Wal-Mart. Others have used a Sanyo Model SR-3770S. Note that the Haier is slightly smaller than the original Norcold but the Sanyo, being a 3.7 cu. ft. model is slightly larger than the Norcold.
This compact fridge is roomy enough for your groceries but small and sleek enough to fit in anywhere. The silver door gives it a modern look, while the two full shelves and door compartments provide outstanding efficiency.
