The vents I mentioned putting the foam in were the air vents, not the A/C vents. We have two of them about 12 inches square. One in the Living area ceiling and one in the bedroom. You close the vents and stuff the foam up in them from the inside.

Smile Getting Ready for our first Trip!

We're still learning ALL the things about our (new to us) 2006 Flagstaff 27BHSS. We're planning on taking a small trip next week and still have a few questions that maybe you guys can help us with. As mentioned before, we have no owners manuals to refer to. We have a Dometic refrigerator/freezer. The freezer seems to get really cold. However, I'm not certain about the refrigerator staying cold enough for our food. I do not see a way to adjust the temperature. And what exactly should the temperature be to keep food from spoiling? Also, we've noticed a few wasps in the interior. Thinking maybe they are coming in through the outside vents for the refrigerator. Any advise on successful ways to keep them out? And finally (for now), my husband noticed that there was water that had been sitting in the freshwater tank whenever we bought it from the previous owners. We are not sure how long the water has been sitting in the tank. Is there a safe way to sanitize the tank before we use it? My husband, Kevin, is not computer savvy at all! So I'm the go between! Thank you all in advance for any help you can give!

how to sanitize:,d.eWU

for the wasps, they most likely have a nest in the heater flu:

On most dometic firdge models there is a slider on the last fin to the right, up is colder, down is warmer.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
