Definitely the way to go. To my simple mind, the Dometics are way overpriced and p*** poor quality. But some people seem to love'em. There are some much better choices available these days.

not enough air flow to keep unit cool? I have seen where people pull the units away from walls and mount 12v computer fans to help move hot air away...just guessing

O.k. - I'm lost. Did you remove that window to get the fridge in?
I second that it does not look like fun.
