Yes, I took the B+ supply from the factory temp sensor and sent it to my switch. I usually turn my fridge on the night before we go out and didn't think the fans needed to be running all night, but living and camping in the south I wanted them on all the time when in use, we will see how it works, or doesn't work, on our next trip.

My old fan cycles as installed. My two ad-ons are switched. Only use them on the hotter days.

I had no fans in mine and on HOT days I couldn't cool anything and any ice in the freezer was water. I added 5 fans with two of them mid way up between the coils and three at the very top of the vent shaft. I do have them controlled by a switch. I always run them at the start of the set up to cool the RV refrigerator down Quick. They will generally stay on the whole time we are camping. With the vent shaft being on the outside wall, if there is any direct sunlight on it and particularly on a hot day, it is like an attic inside of it. I want my freezer stuff to be Frozen and my refrigerated stuff to be Cold. And it is.

Crusadernoob. That looks pretty good. I like the location of your switch. Hope that set up works well for you. Looks like you did a really good job on it. I will need to get some pics of my setup and post them for others to see.

Did this thread ever get off topic, the op's original question got lost, thankfully he managed to get it fixed.
