Does anyone have a thermostat switch installed to control when the fans are on? My concern is power draw if dry camping. Also in cooler weather is it possible to cool too much on the coils?

That would work to.
Are you going to build a shroud like mine?

I used an on off switch as well as if fridge is off so are fans.
They draw minimal amounts.

The basic isdea is to move hot air up and out which will displace heat and regenerate the amonia in the tube back to a liquid

Install the fan below your condenser coil, what turns the fan on with a Norcole is a temp disk (clickon) that is located in the coil fin on the top not the bottom. You want to suck the air in at the bottom and blow it over the coil before it leaves the unit. I just epoxied a 2nd fan to the original at the top and below the coil and then wirier them together with a double spade connector...... But my exhaust is in my slide wall, NOT A ROOF VENT !!!!!

I have almost zero room below. So here's my plan. I'm ordering a new/used cover for the outside. I will keep one stock for travel and the cooler Months. The other I plan on mounting both my fans in and when the weather is hot I will slip this one in place and just run an extension cord to them. I can make it look neat and it seems this will solve the problem. Will post pictures when done.

Project done and I have to say it looks professional. Once I cut the holes in the refrig. cover I took plastic tube and split it to line the rough cut. The fans fit nice and now I just need to decide if I should adapt the outlet where the refer plugs into or just run an extension cord when needed. Once my son gets up he can figure out how to post a picture......I certainly can't.
