Thanks!! Im going to mount my controller just above the fridge facing inside. The piece of paneling just above the fridge panel. I'm going to tap into the 12v access you showed. I will put an on/off switch for the controller next to it. That way I can turn on and control at the same time from inside. Plus keep it seperate from the fridge functions (electrical) just so they don't give me hassle with possible warranty issues.

Okay TURBS. I got everything installed. A few issues. After reading the instuctions on the controller to set it up. I did not have to put a separate on/off switch. Mine has one on it. So I told my wife. I'll still use it. Plus in case the controller fails. I can bypass it (controller) and turn the fans on with it Manually. I think I'm just trying to make this D.A. feel better, not checking first! LOL. Only other issue so far is the LED switch that I didn't need does not light up. Not sure I'll worry about changing it since I didn't need it anyway. Started the fridge. Will let you know how it goes. To get pretty warm here next couple days.

Well TURBS. Have everything going. I'm still nervous. Empty fridge. 90 plus today. 40 degrees best I got. Sure not seeing results like you. Thermister shoved up as far as it can go. Probe temp at highest was 140. Hovers around 138-140 during the day. Other then screaming any other suggestions. I'm just so fraustrated with this unit. This is not the only thing with this unit. I could post something in every topic. From dealership, dealership service, to factory! FOR YEARS WHAT WAS ENJOYABLE TO US, SEEMS TO BE NO MORE!! The fun has been taken out of it. With shotty work to lousy services!!! I would just like to get what we paid for! And treated with respect and HONESTY!!!!!!!

Once the fridge is running the fans dont shut off untill the fridges reach temp.
