Made an alum bracket holding the two fans and screwed the bracket to the back of the frig. Power comes from the panel to the left of the fans. Can't get much closer shot, it even shows the bolts and nuts holding the fans to the bracket.

Fridge Fans

I removed the noisy 80mm fan and replaced it with two 120mm fans using the same wiring. Can't even hear them run and a big difference in cooling. Mounted both fans midway up the backside of the fridge through the top exhaust vent. Hard to get to, but well worth the effort.

The airflow is partially blocked by the condenser tank but didn't want to put it close to the propane burner and have it blow it out. Not a lot of room on my unit to mount horizontally. I will leave that for the larger fan in the exhaust.

I put a small 120v fan (blowing upwards) in the outside compartment of our 390RB. Camping World sells battery-powered fans (two "D" cells) for about $10 (more or less) and we've put one on the top and one on the bottom shelves. Our Dometic 4-door cools to 33 degrees when overnight and keeps to around 40 when we're in and out of it.

I temporarily had to unhook the light for the fridge. When to door closed, it would kill power, next trip I a going to see if I can do something a little more permanent.

The fans have an aligator clip which connects the fan to the fins as well as doubles as the ground
