I was hesitant to pull on it also, but it worked out fine. I pulled through enough to allow the sensor to reach the top of the cooling fins. It did make a big difference.

Is the fan blowing towards the cooling fins or away from the fins in this photo of the interior?

Towards the cooling fins, I also have mounted a 12 volt 7 inch fan to exhaust heat out of the back of the refrigerator cabinet to the outside of my 5th wheel.

I just installed the ARP 2.1version with 2 fans (blowers) in my 2015 Hemi with a DM2852 in a slide. Check out the web site at https://www.arprv.com/index.php Love it. My temps were running high 30s to low 40s at best with the temp probe pushed all the way up on the fins. Now, the new blowers aren't near as loud, don't run all the time and the cabinet next to the frig is much cooler. Plus, I have moved the temp probe to almost the lowest portion of the fins. Temps now 2 - 9 degrees in Freezer and around a constant 33 in frig, with outside temps in high 80s. Yes, there are cheaper ways to add fans. However, I really like the added safety of having a monitoring system to keep frig from over heating and maybe extended it's life. These fridges in slides really do take a beating. The ARP is a easy install, and the folks (Paul) are super to deal with. No I don't work for or have any affiliation with ARP. I just found the site while looking for additional fan choices on Google.

I replaced with 9 cu ft electric will add inverter soon. During replacement saw signs of impending fire in cabinet over flue, 2016 model.

Now that is scary
