Fans will suck a piece of paper to the lower grill and hold it.
Hot air pours out from the top grill!

My deflector is a flat piece of sheet metal just above the top of the upper vent opening. It is didn't even go all of the way across the internal cavity. It was just the width of the opening. I picked up a roll of 10" aluminum flashing and covered the open areas to each side. I can't really say if it helped (gut says it does) but it did make the installation conform to the Dometic installation instructions.

TURBS.This maybe a ridiculous question, Is the controller on all the time? Does it have a on/ off on it? Only asking because, my instuctions are not exactly clear. Want to make sure before I wire it. Mine is 12v.

12v controller is on all the time if you use the access point I showed.
There is a switched wire near the the controll board that will switch on and off with the fridge.
Eventually im going to install an on / off switch like I did in my previous camper.

The controller directions can be a touch confusing at first to program it but once you figure it out its not to difficult.

Right now im in testing mode as far as temp settings, thus far im at fans on at 105 degrees and fans off at 95 degrees.

They mostly run non stop during the day but keep the back of the fridge compartment @ a constant 100 degrees. "So far"
