My trailer has sat in a pasture for about 20 years, but prior to that was in good working condition. The refrigerator is a Marvel, and worked fantastic before it was parked 20 years ago. It's pretty clean now, but really needs to be taken out, cleaned up and refitted with new door sealings and whatnot and it will also need to be rewired since a nice large family of rats have been living in the trailer. First of all--how do you get the refrigerator out? Second, is getting it restored worth it? Has anyone done this and have an idea of how much it might cost?
the marvel fridg i have did work so i just cleaned it up and re painted it i just used the tools you see laying on the floor. the fiber wheel on the drill seemed to work the best, from harbor freighti used rustolium spray paint from home depot appliance white
One thing, if your Marvel has a cardboard looking case (sans metal on the sides): mine developed a terrible odor after spray painting. It was so bad I sat it outside for 6 weeks. Finally sealed it with white shellac based coating. Doesn't smell today. I'm guessing it had some sort of flame retardant chemical in the cardboard that reacted with the paint.
