Don't know how long it will run when the fridge is off as we need the fridge until we return home. I have two concerns: Will the fan continue to operate long after the fridge is turned off and run the battery down? What to do about the loud noise?
We had our issues with the fridge fan last year.We only weekend camp and when not camping the trailer sits in the yard with the fridge turned off.Trouble is the fridge fan is hooked to a wire that has power all the time with an inline fuse and a temp. sensing switch,so it would turn on when the sun heated up the compartment behind the fridge,killing the battery.
We then had to take the fuse out of the fuse holder to keep it from coming on.This year I plan to install a battery disconnect,so I don't have to remove the fuse when not in use.
