Thanks OC. I'm still looking for mounting space. Yours looks adequate in that space. I have to find the space.

I have seen OC's posts on low mount before and immediately when out and looked at mine. There is no where down low to mount them on the 1350

Are you using fans with a high CFM. I had problems last year while on vacation in our fifthwheel. I couldn't get the refrigerator temp below 61 degrees. Had to keep food in coolers. When I got home, I pulled the Dometic refrigerator out and discovered that there were no fans at all. I ordered 5 High CFM fans, wire cables, AC/DC converter 2amp, switch, and power hub strip from Coolerguys.com, (about $100 invested). I made brackets from Aluminum angle iron purchased from Lowes. Three fans at top of vent shaft and two fans between coils on rear of the refrigerator. Placed a strip of two sided thick foam like tape on the rear bracket to obsorb any vibration of it next to the unit. The rear bracket is not held only by the foam like tape. The ends of the bracket are bolted to the refrigerator. When we get to our site I flip the switch to turn them on and it stays on until we break camp. Stays around 34 degrees in the hot heat. These fans also help it to cool down a lot quicker. Good luck with your set up. My fans are blue LED fans also. I can peek up through from the outside and see them running.

Well. I just cut out top panel to allow for more air exit and placed a piece of roof flashing above it all. Frig at 42 this morning. Has come down to 38 in past 20 minutes. Watching.

Still can't get frig temp below 40į, even with 3 fans on. So this morning I direct wired elected heating element as described in video I watched. Hoping.

Dometic recommends that any vent fans be installed well above the burner in the vent, not below the burner or any other place in the compartment.

They also have stated, on other forums, that proper installation design doesn't require fans. (I guess they didn't expect reefers in slides!)
