A number of us have added this type fan to our refrigerators with great success. As for dealing with 108 degrees I'm not sure how low the temperature will stay in the fridge but 55 seems way too high. Others have added this type fan to help displace the heat at the rear of the fridge. I haven't found the need for one yet but hopefully someone that has can give you their results.

Best of luck and try to keep cool!
Just ordered one - looks to be effective.

Thanks for the info.

A quick and easy solution while sort of "red neck" is to get a 12" box fan and mount it on the ouside fridges lower outside vent panel blowing in. When my fan thats mounted on the cooling coils of the fridge kicks on it's rather noisey, so I use the 12" box fan and then the factory installed cooling fan doesn't kick in and fridge actually stays cooler then with the factory cooling fan

Here is the one I installed with the chrome toggle switch to control it. The fan is the black rectangle in the center between the small tube and the large tube.

Fridge is on a slide. Can you place the fan anywhere. I saw something about bottom vent??? Or do it on both? Should it be blowing upwards?

My fridge is not on a slide and yes, the fan blows up. Just make sure it doesn't blow toward the propane/flame portion.

Although I just ordered one of the 12-V fans, I've always used (been a "Fan" of) the ones sold at Wal*Mart for about $15 that use two "D" cells.

It's 103 outside right now, and I'm drinking a 37-degree bneer from my Dometic!
