Mounted 2 just above and to the left of the burner to cool the entire back. Works great.

You gotta wonder what the bean counters at Dometic are thinking!
Lots of un-happy campers out here due to the noisy fan.
IF we can fix it on the cheap- so can they but they obviously don't
care if it's noisy.

The recent post about the burner not designed to work above 5000 ft
is another one! Sheesh, we visit Colorado every few years. My current
fridge works fine at 11,000 feet and they can't make 'em like that
any more???

BTW I am going to copy this very helpful discussion to our FAQ as the
noisy fan question comes up pretty regularly.
Thanks for the VERY helpful photos and links!

Happy Camping!

I hate to keep sounding like a big dummy but doesn't the air flow from the new fans need to be going upward toward the fins on the back of the frig unit. My frig has two vents on the outside of the camper. The fan that's in there now is about the middle of the frig. The fins that I'm talking about is at the top vent. When I opened that vent up lots of heat came out. It's it the heat we are trying to get rid of.

You are correct, the fans should blow air from the bottom to the top across the entire back of the refrigerator.

The one olcoot mentioned. Got 2 coming Friday. I like knowing some one else has proven success. Just got to rig the mount and figure out wiring when they get here.

I wired mine so they only come on when the fridge is on.
