A minor nuisance, but has anyone notice how hot the pantry is compared to the rest of the camper in hot weather? It's not just air flow, because all other cabinets are fine. Maybe heat from fridge? Any fix or ideas?

Is the sun on that side of your TT? I have to remind DW to put all chocolates in the fridge cause they melt in my pantry when the afternoon sun hits it.

The sun on that side does make a slight difference, but it's a lot warmer than the other cabinets on that side. I wonder if it's because the pantry is beside the fridge? The summer is here in NC and the air is on most of the time, but we have to leave the pantry door open to keep it cool enough to not melt the cookies!

Where's your converter and electrical panel? That puts out quite a bit of heat, too.

Same for me too. We have to leave it open. I'm thinking it's the fridge

I've only had 1 trip, but didn't notice. Thanks for the head's up! It makes sense that it's from the fridge.

It's not the converter. That is not near the pantry.

I'm at a campsite now with 2014 23ikss. Have not noticed this, so opened the door and checked. I can tell you that at least on our unit, there is no issue here. Camping in Texas with 90 f heat, and it is a comfortable 76 f inside. I would say the wardrobe is about the same but I did not move our wall mounted walmart thermometer.

Correction. the very top partition, next to the fridge has a warm wall. Rest of partitions feel normal. I cannot tell a difference by air temperature inside the pantry. I don't think it is so warm that it is an issue.
