Installed the "snip-the-tip" thermistor on Tuesday. Been cloudy and rainy everyday since, with cooler weather (for Louisiana, highs in mid 70s) so not able to see if it will make a difference in the heat of 95 degree days. BUT, so far, it has brought frigg down to 28 at night and rises to around 37 during the day. It is set at factory setting of 33-39 degrees. Waiting for a hot day. So far this appears to be the best fix. Added 2 new fans, no noticable difference. Have not turned them on since installing snipthetip. Want to get a true reading on hot day. Can use fans 2 & 3 when needed.

Can guarantee the fans on the back will do more than anything to drop the temperature. When we turn the frig on, I immediately turn the fans on (2 inside and 2 outside) and leave them on 24/7 until we turn the frig off.

Can I ask what kind of fan are you putting on the outside? And how are you wiring them up?
We have always had problems getting our fridge temp down.
Actually it runs cooler as we travel. Probably because it stays cooler on the outside.
Appreciate any ideas or help

I removed a burned up shore power socket (made the mistake of using the air conditioner without twisting the cord to lock it in place) and replaced it.

Replaced the Current Limiter under the pin box cause it looked like it needed it visually (I was right!)

I installed 8 USB charging stations that can be switched from Shore Power to Inverter.

And finally, mounted the Cell phone booster and WiFi repeater/router.

All in all a good week.
Lou, which cell phone booster and WIFI repeater are you using?

TIA Buddy!

Ball bearing computer fans in both places. The two in the back are mounted just above the burner and blow across the entire back and the two in the inside are hanging off the coil. Both sets are on toggle switches. Cost less than $20 pr on eBay.
