Also, I have read a lot of folks are talking about the existing fan makes a lot of noise on the fridge. I have yet to hear my fridge make a sound. Would never know it's working other than its cool (not enough). Can you hear your fridge at all other than the extra fan you added?

Thanks again, Chris
Those fins are inside the unit. If you leave it clipped to the fin then it will run as long as the unit is on. When you want it off just remove the clip from the fin. After you hook the positive wire up you just leave it hooked up. If you go through the drain tube from the pan under the fins it will be behind your rear access panel behind outside. I do not hear that fan running maybe slightly. The fans I think you are talking about are the cooling fans behind the refer. Some could be noisy, they blow air over the outside coil behind the unit. Even if you are running 110v for it you still have 12v on what ever mode your in. Thats why you can power it off your 12v light in the refer. It was just easier for me to hook it up by the controls behind the outside panel. No switch is involved just the alligator clip to the fin. Unclip it and it will shut off. If you need a picture of the back let me know, and I will try and post it. This works a lot better then the battery operated ones you can get at CW, and take up less room and more airflow.
