I scored a Norcold NR751BB refrigerator, it uses the same cutout size as the Norcold DC-0051 that was in there before, but this is a much tighter fit. The two large L-brackets that hold the vertical cabinet members to the floor, on either side of the refer opening, create too much of an obstruction to let the new one slide in. It looks like I might have to move one or both of the brackets to the other side of the vertical piece reversing the elevator bolts used in each panel.
Here is an old pic of the old refer and the brackets.

That would put one L-bracket in the cubby for the porta-pottie to the left. If that does not do it, I may move the other outside of the cabinet, bolting the vertical right behind the drivers seat.
It was already dark outside when I started this project, but it looks like these bolt through the van floor underneath the van, but above the propane tank.
My questions are these:
1. Has anyone moved, removed or reinstalled these brackets before?
Are there any tricks or things to be aware of?
2. I assume they go through the floor, as I can see a big, thick fender washer in the approximate location of the suspect bolt and bracket. Is that so?
3. Also, any big headache dropping the propane tank, since everything I need to touch is right above it in my plan?
Thanks in advance for your help!
