Lower Fridge vent.

Looking for a lower fridge vent that opens. Cutout size approx. 19.5" w by 9" H. Can increase the height easily, not much wiggle room on the width.

Original Dometic #'s that work:
VT24 or VT-24-1
183 or RM183,
RM190 may work
The S-183 available at SCAMP may or may not fit. Does anybody have the actual cutout dimensions? Their site only states: 20 7/8" wide x 11 1/8" high. I don't know if that is that is the cutout or finished size.

Colonial White is preferred,
I'll take Norcold or other brands if they fit. Metal and square corners preferred

Here is a parts cataloge with Norco vents that may help you. The lower vent on my Scamp looks just like it and the vent size is 9 -9/16 H x 19 1/8 W

I found an original VT-24-1 at a pop up salvage. It helps to think outside the box when searching on the internet. It cost more most new vents I've seen, but then again it is old and rare.

The RM183 may not be a direct replacement for the VT24I since it is a bit smaller and does not cover up the rivet holes. It does not work well on the Trillium 4500 because of the position relative to the floor.

I have no idea if the RM190 works because I did not locate one.
