You might give some thought to adding a 2 gal pressure tank in the space where the water filter came out of. I did that to mine and its is one of the better mods I have done.

Today I finally had some time to work on our new trailer. I added a FridgeFix refrigerator fan, upgraded the thermostat to a digital thermostat, installed a LevelMate Pro, added a door lock and velcro to secure the shelves in the outdoor fridge, and installed gas struts for the flip-up top bunk bed in the bunk house.Click image for larger version

Those fans seem like a good idea. Do they help? Are they battery powered or do they run off of 12 volts? Jay

They are 12V. The power wire is ran out along with the thermistor wire and it connects to the fridge 12V input behind the service panel.

Thanks a lot. That seems like a better option to me than a battery powered fan

I added a computer fan to mine as well. I wired it to the intererior light switch to work opposite of the light bulb, ie on when door is closed, off when door is open.

I hooked up the positive side to the source side of the door switch, then hooked up the negative side to the light side of the door switch. That way it grounds through the light bulb. When the door is opened and the light bulb turns on, it interupts the ground and turns the fan off automaticlly so you don't push all your cold air out the bottom of the fridge while it is open. Then when you shut the door, the fan turns back on automatically.

It is plastic fence post with a slide out drawer made from plastic rain gutter. I believe its 4" X 4". I made it for our prior trailer a few years ago. If I made it for the new trailer, I would have used black.

The fence posts are usually 5" x 5"
