Plug in fridge?

Hi, I have a 1992 Jayco 1006 deluxe. It came with an ice box. Any reason why I cant remove the ice box and replace it with a "dorm" type electric fridge and simply run the cord into an outlet? Or at worst, plug the cord into an extension cord if the original fridge cord is not long enough? Yeah, I'd lose one of the outlets on the double outlet but I can live with that. The fridge cord would have to run through the furnace section in my popup but I could staple the cord high and away from the heater. Any advise would be welcomed. Thanks.

I did on my 1993 Eagle 10. I found one that fit right in the hole. Much better than the ice box. I cannot remember how I wired it, but pretty sure I plugged in inside and did not run a cord to the power pole.

Friend changed out his dual fuel, for a large dorm style.

Watch the instructions, his stated do not put insulation up against it.

That is the one thing I would pay attention to. Compressor fridges need airflow for cooling. On pups with 3-ways the fridge compartment is vented to the outside, and presumably Jayco has left adequate ventilation space around the unit per the manufacturer spec. Don't just jam one in there tight, or it won't cool well and will possibly break down.

For my OEM fridge there was a plug located inside the storage compartment, and the fridge had its own breaker on the panel. Even those little dorm fridges can pull a fair bit of power.
