8328BS pantry

We recently purchased a 2016 8328BS ( 50 amp with 2 a/c's). We noticed that the pantry seems to get excessively warm. Has anyone else noticed this?

We have a different model but our pantry also gets pretty warm. Our pantry is next to the fridge so I am sure that is the problem. In the summer we leave the pantry door open just a bit and it helps. Interested if anyone has a more permanent solution.

We have the rear kitchen where the pantry is next to the fridge and in a corner. So it has the fridge, 2 outside walls and the roof all giving it heat. So it gets pretty warm.

And you will notice that overhead cabinets and even wardrobes get a little warm too. They are stuck to the outside walls and when the doors are closed they have no access to air conditioned air - thus they get warm.

But the pantry really does get warm!

Our pantry is on an interior wall while our kitchen is in a slide ( opposite slide to where the pantry is ). The pantry backs up to the bathroom wall which has the cabinet.
