I am going to replace my refrigerator. I have a Dometic 2852 which I am replacing with a 2872. From what I have read it should be a fairly simple exchange. Would appreciate any experienced advice. Thank you.

Depends on if it is a DM-2852, or a DM-2852 "Americana"

If you are a boondocker as your name suggests and you don't have a lot of solar and a large battery bank you will likely be happier remaining with a propane fridge. I love a residential fridge but they are not right for everyone.
