I went out to take pictures today. The A-frame is parked about 2ft from the garage wall - just enough space for me to get to that side of the camper. Pictures did not work out - would not focus that close. Will try again another day with different phone/cameras. At least I'll get good pictures when I pull the camper out of the garage in 3 weeks for our Utah 5 trip.
Basically, at the top I'm forming a duct (sides and top) to the top vent. I'm trying to limit how much heat can be trapped in the top and sides of the compartment. If I can get the heat exhausting out the top vent instead of being trapped in the compartment, it should draw cool air in the bottom vent.
At the bottom, I'm trying to make as smooth a path as possible for the incoming air to the cooling coils.
The pop-up campers' fridges all have a tough time with cooling air over the coils because of the limited vertical distance between the upper exhaust vent and the lower intake vent. Just not enough distance for a decent chimney effect.
The remote thermometer gives me a great tool - for less than $10 - to tell how my fridge is really doing.
