We recently acquired a 1978 Swinger Georgie-Boy motorhome.  Think we are going to love it simply because of the convenience of not having to figure out where the dogs will fit in a camper and being able to drive to our location and not as much set up as a camper.  Anyway, this winter we plan to try and do some remodeling.  

We are very NEW at motorhome life for our first concern is the weight distribution.  We would like to move the refridgerator to the opposite side of the motor home to create a more working kitchen but also to open up our sleeping quarters a bit.  In moving the refridgerator do we then have to make up for the difference in weight that we have moved to the other side???

Probably not is my guess. What's on the other side?Incuding under the rig like an offset water tank. If not, as long as it stays in the same location between axles, i.e. front and rear axles, so it's large weight is balanced between axles my guess is you'r ok. Of course, realy  really properly secure it so it does not come loose even in, heaven forbid, a wreck. Also, consider the vents, both side and top and the lp gas line to it.  this might be a bit of a pain, depending on vent roof and side locations.   By the way, roof leaks around vents lead to the demise of most rvs due to water leaking so be sure and study and use proper seals on the roof. When on LP, there MUST be some venting due to heat and lp gas.
