    Hi! I'm new here and not very mechanically bright... so take it easy on me.
    I bought a 1998 Coleman Sea Pine from a friend of mine that upgraded to a TT. Her name (the PUP, not my friend) is Sybil (for information why, please see the Bill Engvall Camping video around 1:34



    I've already ran into some issues, but thanks to this forum and her handy fiance the lift system and non-working lights have been fixed.
    Tomorrow my friend that is out of work is going to repack my wheel bearings and replace my brake light cover.
    I bought the recommended 3M glue to reattach the seal that is coming loose.
    It originally had an ABS roof, but they had it replaced a few years ago. The sealant is starting to wear off. I will take pictures and hopefully someone can recommend the best way to fix it.
    I have bought fabric to make new curtains, and I am going to pick out cushion fabric this week.

    My first question: The refrigerator doesn't work. My friend doesn't know what is wrong with it. The people they bought it from just gave them a small refrigerator to put on the cabinet when they needed it. Can I buy just a regular dorm refrigerator and stick it in the hole where the one is now, or will that cause an issue with the compressor? Or, do you have any super simple things I can check on the refrigerator? My dad is super handy and could probably fix these things for me, but they are building a new house and he just doesn't have time. So, I am on my own with the help of you guys!

    So, thanks in advance :)

    Here are some before pictures. Hopefully it winds up cute!

    Welcome from Oklahoma. If your stove works, try running the fridge on propane. They don't cool quickly so, don't expect a change after an hour.

    Welcome, and yest the fridge will not have a soumd like a regler one, its silent. It takes a day to cool down. There is a selector on the outside of the fridge, 12v , 120 v , propane. See what its set on.
