Looking for solution to frosty fins, and this product looks like it's what I need! Does anyone know if this works with my '05 Norcold N81X series fridge or anything different I need to do with wiring?

Here's my story/symptoms:
On our last trip/Myrtle Beach last weekend -- cranked up fridge 2 days before on propane (sits in storage lot so only option.) Cools find to mid 30's in fridge, very cold in freezer (didn't check temp, but stuff stays frozen and I can make 2 rounds of ice cubes daily.)
Day 1, works well. By day 2, fridge gets into low 40's (lowest reading - first read of morning), and then by day 3 it's mid to upper 40's. Had so much frost built up on the fins on day 3, I took a hairdryer to it (yea, I know, I'm not supposed to do that.) So much frost melt, the little trough filled up and water began splashing out. Cooled back down to mid 40's by the time we got home.
We are careful to only put precooled stuff in fridge when packing, and we even "help" fridge by putting frozen bacon and London Broil in fridge to defrost. We do replace soft drinks, but try and do that a couple of times a day and not load fridge with a bunch of room temp stuff. We also space out warm items when putting them in fridge.
We also use one of those blue box 2 "D" Cell fans inside fridge.
