2016 WA2916 Refrigerator exterior access

I'm looking for pics of 2016 WA2916 exterior refrigerator access panel placement. I took mine to try and figure out why the fridge was not cooling and found that it is going to be very difficult to access the flue to clean it. Wondering if I'm the only one with this problem. Here's a pic of mine. Show how yours is.

Just make sure the openings are facing down

The location of the vent is most likely placed based on the interior construction. It looks a little off center to the left. Those chimneys have been hard to access on every one I have owned. Techs have tricks to clean those flues such as flexible tubing connected to an air nozzle and small brushes with flexible handles.

I misunderstood what you were saying. I doubt that the flew is causing your cooling problems a better bet would be that the unit is not venting properly thru the chimney. You can remove the chimney cover and see if that area is clear you may also consider adding a chimney fan I did that on my class A and it greatly improved the cooling.

I doubt looking at photos of other vent openings will give you much information.

Yours looks similar to the dozens I've seen and as Havercamp mentioned, most all are equally hard to access the flue side. I've always used compressed air (low/moderate pressure) and a blow gun with a bit of an extended tip on it to clean mine.

My issue is not the cooling problem. It is being able to access the right side. When I look at a 2017 model or any other RV with the external vent . it looks like the vent on my trailer is not in the correct spot.

2016 WA2916 Refrigerator exterior access

My 2916 is currently stored right now but we are taking out next week. If you can wait till then I'll totally hook you up. I have a question for ya though....
my 2916 was actually missing the temp slider inside the fridge. It was rolled up and sitting in the fridge behind a storage bin. Took me FOREVER to figure out what my cooling issue was. Once I found it and connected it, it's been perfect ever since. Is yours hooked up?

so if I read you correctly there is not a problem with your frig it is working fine the only problem is that you feel you can't access the right side to do what?
