I just leave the doors ajar. Keeps things a little cooler and a lot less trouble.

Unfortunately the dog would get himself in trouble with an open pantry.

It made a huge difference, refer and pantry is much cooler .



This instruction states how the refer is supposed to be vented.

Page 7 shows how the fridge in my 832ikbs should be and it's not even close.

Here is a pic from the upper side vent. Should that board be there? It is caulked in place. What is its function or can we remove that to get better airflow?

Are you the original owner? The board doesn't look like it was factory installed. I wouldn't know why the board would be there. I would think it might restrict air flow. But I'm definitely no expert on this subject. I am curious about this though. Hmmm...

I have one like that in my trailer also. Doesn't seem to accomplish much IMO besides somewhat trapping hot air since there is no baffle in place.

Not a roof vent, just the second upper cover on the outside. The way they did it all the heat goes into a void above the fridge and hangs out.
