1990 Bigfoot 17 appliance upgrades

Hey guys, Im new to this group and to the Bigfoot familly 😁 Curious if anyone has made any upgrades to the appliances in these. Curious if anyone has upgraded the fridge and furnace mostly. Hoping to find a fridge that might be slightly bigger but more importantly maybe an automatic selector type where it isnt nec to manually light a pilot light. And same for furnace. Just seeing if there is anything out there that fits with minimal reno that would be more modern without manual pilot lightsthanks

"93 B17
installed RM2351 refrig when original gave up. No bigger than original but works a lot better (3way).

installed Dometic wh6GA when old one burst on freezing. Has auto pilot, gas only.

Original Heater is auto pilot and works great after replacing control board with Dinosaur.

thanks guys… we’re thinking of giving it another year or so, then maybe upgrade to a compressor style fridge and running solar power. Everything still works, so not in a rush to upgrade yet ��
