Residential Refrigerator

I am a new owner of a CC 32RL with a residential refer. I cannot find any venting for the refer. It looks to be completely enclosed with cabinetry. I thought all refers needed venting to dissipate the heat. The refer seems to be working fine. What am I missing?

If it is setup like ours there is some air space top and bottom that I believe they are using to move air in/out. Some have reported adding (on the 38FL) a vent into the side of the fridge box to help eliminate the heat buildup. I have thought about doing this but have not done so yet.

We have the same set up in our 38FL. We've had the rig out several times and have been full timing since early May without a hitch just the way it was built. So it's been working through the hottest part of the year (and in Florida, at that), it appears to be a good design....so far

Residential fridges use a different cooling system type. They do not use that heated stack method but replay on compressors and such. As long as there is space above the fridge and behind it, you should be good to go.

You don't vent your fridge at home to the outside and you don't vent this one. The real issue is combustion gasses and way more heat for the traditional camper fridge.
