refrigerator door direction change

I have a 2020 Casita Independence. The refrigerator door opens next to the bed and I have to move the bedding and my legs to open. I want to change the direction of the door to open towards the bathroom and open space. The installation manual instructs me how but leaves out some details.
Has anyone change the Dometic door direction and is it easy? Did you have to remove the frig?

Thanks, James

No reason to remove the fridge. It's just a matter of switching the hinges from one side to the other. The holes are already there and you use the same hardware that you take out.

No need to remove the fridge.
Look at the hinge parts.
Remove Screws , move to the other side and mount there.
Do a google search for Dometic door reverse.

I replaced the refer in my Scamp 16 this summer with a Dometic RM2351 unit. It came with hinges on the right, needed hinges on the left. I needed to purchase a hinge kit to make that switch - the hinges I needed were mirror images of the ones I had. Once I had that kit it was simple enough to make the switch (Remove & replace (5) screws.) I did not have to remove the fridge from the camper. We found the kit on eBay, similar to this one:

i regret to say that only 2 models you can change the door direction. Mine , rm2454, requires a kit from the factory.
