We have no fans in the back. Did your unit come with fans?

My 2011 came with two fans in the middle that circulate the air across the coils.

correct they have 2 fans up toward top you can barely see them if you jammed your head in there and look up. I removed cap on roof to let light down, then you can see fans from bottom when you look up. I have yet to see them turn on it was 98 out when my fridge would not go below 42. I bought a 3 fan kit, I mounted on bottom by access panel all In between coils and wiring blowing up towards roof. they have thermostat in line on wire I believe it turns on at 85 degrees, which I mounted near a relay that's warm so they run a lot. I also mounted the interior fan kit off light. all probably over kill but when my kids go in out of fridge a lot, it holds 34 degrees in fridge now. but the ammonia system on my 4 door fridge. was replaced after our first camping trip, all ammonia leaked out. so maybe tech did not hook those fans back up? I would have to take fridge out check it? Good luck all. as I think these dual fuel fridges are weird, but I do get it when you have run off propane.
now if I can get someone to tell me how to get front ac unit to cool better?

When I had my RM1350 it was slow cooling in the warm weather. My next step was to add the fans inside and outside the frig. But I traded the TT for a 5er instead before I did it.
