I recently purchased an Isotherm BI-53 drop in fridge box to mount in the summer kitchen of our Mainship 400. I posted a month or so ago about wiring, which I have now completed (it actually went easier than I expected).
Now it's time to install the box, and I've run into a bit of a snag.
Here is a link to the unit I bought. https://www.indelwebastomarine.com/i...bi-53-freezer/
I got it through WM, my local store does not carry it, so they had to order it. I paid $100 in shipping, so I'm not anxious to send it back.
My plan was to cut the correct size opening in the top (counter?) of the summer kitchen, seal the edges of the core with epoxy and drop the box in. The lid of the summer kitchen would close over it when not in use.
Unfortunately, there is no flange or lip around the box.
So now I'm kind of stuck. I'm thinking of adding a flange to it, maybe with aluminum angle iron? Starboard? My worry is that the outside skin of the box seems pretty thin, will sheet metal screws be secure enough?
Other option, I guess, is to build some sort of shelf inside the summer kitchen, but I'd prefer not to do that.
