there is the std. copper line coming into the compartment, to an on/off valve. A rubber hose 3' long connects the valve to the fridge
. When the shelf and door are pushed back into the cabinet the space around the door and the cabinet face frame has a foam weather striping that seals the cabinet shut there is a latch at the top, and bottom to hold the door firmly in place while traveling. The opening is 21"wide by 22"s high. the shelf is 1-1/2" Baltic birch plywood. two 1/2" thick pieces glued together. with an Acuride drawer glide. The fridge
is a Dometic RC 4000 it is just sitting on the pull out shelf. there are feet on the front of the fridge which sit into opening cut into the shelf, the wheels that are at the rear bottom of the fridge have been removed, the fridge sits on its bottom. The fridge stays in place because of the feet being trapped in the holes cut to accommodate them. The fridge can bounce up against the stove above. I could place some solid foam pieces on the underside of the stove bottom, and it could be in contact with the top of fridge when closed.
