Remove frige through window

The door was too small, so the frig had to go through window, and the window had to come out.
Easy to do.
Unscrew the interior frame (usually a bunch of phillips screws), and pry the window with a scraper from the outside. Careful to not put pressure too much on any one point. Work every few inches if needed. Have the window open so you have more to hold onto when removing it.
You will need new 3/4 inch butyl tape.The window is not sealed with caulk or anything out of a tube (though there are tube products). The tape is best to use.
Clean the window frame and opening of Rv before re-install. This was an easy project anyone could do.

disconnect propane, unplug wires, unscrew from floor and where the front panel screws to the cabinet, pull it out.

The window is out. I wish I could have just opened the window, but had to completely remove window.

I protected the RV with some thick towels. The long ladder gave me a nice ramp to slide the fridge out.

I just slid it down the ramp.

I will install a roof AC soon, and will use the ladder as a ramp to just slide the AC unit onto the roof. I have a hill the ladder is sitting on that helps even the elevations, but you could sit it on a table, or extend the ladder longer for a less-sloped ramp.

I have a DC powered compressor fridge that I will be using, and it is not particular about level, and will use free solar power…
