Fridge Defend

Does anyone have experience using Fridge Defend by ARP Protects? This is an overheat protection device for the gas fridge. I heard most RV fires are from the refrigerator and would like some protection if it works.
Thanks

Sorry, never heard of it, in reality the number of fires are pretty low compared to the # of RVs. I would think that if I was looking into something I would look into a single shot extinguisher with a heat sensor, but what you have posted, I'm going to Google it, thanks for your opinion and concern.

Wouldn’t adding thermostatic controlled fan(s) do the same thing? I have mine set at 90 deg. and they go on and off.

Okay, I looked that up, I myself would never buy that. Fires don't happen from overheating, they happen from leaks. Your system already has limit switches to stop overheating, I agree if your having a problem with cooling because of heat build up a 12v fan would do the trick. Biggest heat problems comes with refers in a slide. I also wouldn't want some gadget turning mine off and on. But if it makes you feel safe go for it.
