This instruction from Dometic shows FR took some liberties for a refer slide installation

Now that is interesting as there was no upper nor lower baffle behind my frig. I made an upper and now will make a lower one. That looks like a way to get the air to flow thru the fins better as air must flow up right against the back of the frig.

On page #6 is how mine is done and it is a Norcol, Looks like they stole OC'S curved top to help exhust the hot air......and as a side note OC' has a lot of it, but he told me to do that years ago to mine. I guess I should listen to my ELDERS....

I don't have a lower baffle either. I would be interested to hear how it goes for you. I can see where it would make the air flow more efficient, but also fairly restricted without sufficient secondary draw (fan). It will be interesting to see if efficiency trumps the reduced volume.

Mine had the same thing in it, thought it was weird so I cut it out only to find one little fan behind it, no wonder we couldn't keep ice cream frozen. Well, I spent some time and installed these, haven't been out with it yet, but it's only got to be better, I guess I should have done some more reading up on this, now I need to chek on the baffles. Oh well.

That's some serious fannage! What kind of juice does one of those pull? Did you purchase them online?

It's not much, .13amps each, made sure I got ball bearing for high life, I ordered them off of newegg.com but I must say I inquired about this project from another member and had already ordered them before I was told about coolerguys.com At coolerguys.com they have all the power boards, extension cables you would need depending on your install. I just used the factory power supply, added a switch to the refrigerator panel. I also put a 4th fan below. I sure hope this helps, we love our ice cream with a spoon, not a straw.

Regarding your switch, you turn yours on and off manually instead of the refrigerator cycling the fans on and off itself? Awesome fan setup, by the way!

.52 for all 4... that's certainly manageable. Thanks for the info, Ethan!
