Can Dometic DM2852 replace Norcold 682?

Post by geantbrun »

Hi everyone,
My previous post was about the relative merits of the residential vs gas/elec refrigerator. Since then I've found a good opportunity, it's a reconditioned Dometic DM2852 that sells for 1000$. They say on this site that it can replace the Norcold 682 BUT they also say that...
Some of these replacements are the best matches but are not exact replacements, please review your current dimensions with this refrigerators dimensions.
So my question is : can someone confirm that the Dometic DM2852 is a valid replacement for the Norcold 682 ? Are the dimensions the only things to check or are there some other things like the locations of vents, etc ?

Thank you in advance,
Patrick

I suggest you download this Dometic installation manual and verify that everything about your coach is is compatible with, (or can be easily modified to be compatible with), the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS on pages 3-9.

Thanks Mel, I'll take a look for sure. Out of curiosity, do you still have the original Norcold 682 in your Sahara 96?
