One of the things lacking in the 32XX series is a drawer for silverware and utensils. A good location would be over the fridge, but the original nevercold fridge left no room. Not only was it not cold, but it was noisy and ran all the time. So last year we changed it out to a Dometic Tundra. Great fridge, cold and you can hardly hear it run. the model we put in was TJ42AC. The dimensions are 30.75 X 23.125. It fits in the original fridge hole perfectly and is a little bit shorter than the original nevercold. Just enough to put a drawer it.

Here's the pictures.

See picture 1. Here you can see the faceboard above the fridge and behind the drawer. This board screws into the face of the cabinet. It is approximately 21.25 X 3.625".
See picture 3.In this board is cut a hole for the drawer. the hole dimensions are approx. 20.75 X3.125"
See picture four. The drawer outside dimensions are approx. 19.625 wide X 18 deep X 3" . The inside drawer depth is approx. 2.75". that is shallower than a normal drawer, but plenty deep enough for a silverware tray.

The drawer and it's enclosure was built as a unit and then slid in above the fridge and screwed to the front cabinet frame. The back of the unit sits on the top of the fridge. Notice also in picture 3 there is a locking clip in the back of the unit that keeps the drawer from sliding open.

There ya go.

It does look great. But where's the heat vent for the fridge?

Ridgekid, good question.

We grappled with this also and decided to monitor the heat surrounding the fridge. So far, it has not been a problem. As you probably know, there is a vent in the lower berth wall. Also, the fridge cabinet is open into the undersink cabinet. That's where we feel for heat. And there is a ventilation passage into the cave area, forward of the water heater. We could add an additional vent in the area where we have the fire extinguisher. But I have not noticed additional heat around the fridge, nor have I noticed it running longer indicating it is having difficulty cooling the fridge.
