If your fridge is staying at 33 degrees, what kind of "improvement" are you looking for? Usually want fridge to be 35-38 degrees. Sounds like you're there, to me. Any further improvement will turn it into a freezer!

True.. I guess what Im looking for is it not having to cycle as often as I hear it to keep cold.. By removing the heat from the back of the refrigerator with a couple of extra fans I hope to help the compressor not have to work as hard.. Just a theory

No compressor on RV fridges. They are an ammonia absorption type of cooling system and use thermodynamics to transfer heat out. But yes, extra or more powerful fans do help.

He might have a res. fridge, then it would have comp. Some of them are in slides, tight confines.

Transporting AFTER REFILLING is against the law.

But how would they even know?

I don't think the DOT regs apply to us campers; commercial transport only?

What did you use to make the part that screws onto the grill? I have the 6 ft quick connect extension with the 1lb bottle adapter, but need to remove the regulator, but keep the flow control.

Getting the TT loaded for a 4th of July weekend trip to the river!
Do this trip as a final shakedown trip before we head out to Colorado the middle of July.
Will be adding a 2nd 12 vDC battery and a new cutoff switch this weekend along with testing the new inverter I picked up.
After this weekend we will bring her home for a wash and wax before getting her back on the road.
