    Just closed on a 2006 38 Sundancer. Boat is in Milwaukee, Wi (winter storage) Will have summer slip in Sturgeon Bay, WI. Boat has ice maker on aft deck. Can this be converted to a refrigerator?
    Appreciate any input.
    Thanks, THT

    The ice maker doesn’t have an adjustable cold control.
    You can use it as a freezer

    Will a refrigerator fit in the same space occupied by the freezer without modification?

    At least it fits for the earlier 380’s holds about 36-12 ounce cans

    I wanted a bigger unit so I had to cut the hole 2” taller and about 2” wider. 12v was already there from the factory and yours may be as well. 1 hour long install.

    I went with an Isotherm 49 I think.

    Congrats on the 38
    I agree that you're probably better off with the fridge but then you'll still need a cooler on board to keep some drink ice.

    Center Pointe Marina Slip B1. Sorry for the delay in responding. I am in the process of returning to our home in Green Bay from Florida. Stopped here in Charlotte, NC to visit friends for a couple of days. On the road in the morning and hopefully back in GB for the weekend. Way toooo much windshield time in the next two days !
    Thanks for all the input.
