Hi guys,

I just bought my TT (Wildwood 26BH) which comes with a Dometic 2551. This model fridge doesn't have a light on it. I did notice that it has the drain hose which empties out in back of the fridge and there is a 12V terminal block.

Now onto my question: I am interested in installing this fan mod for the fridge but want to see if anyone has successfully done so on a fridge that doesn't have a light (or better yet on the Dometic 2551 fridge).

Thanks in advance!

well, after having my fan for a couple months, one of the fans is about dead. it has a very bad vibration when running, and thus only spins at about 1/3 its normal speed. if i turn it off, tap on it, then turn it back on until the vib goes away it works fine. but after about 20-30 min of running i can hear a humming coming from the fridge. i open the door and guess what.....fan is vibing big time and barely spinning.

the screws that hold the fans onto the blue aluminum plate are also all rusty.

im not having as good of impressions as alot of folks are here....

Need to attach the wire to the hot side of the lite or a hot wire. The clamp is the neutral.

Bocephus, sounds like you have a moister problem if screws are rusting, check your door seals with a dollar bill. If you close the door on a dollar bill and are able to pull the bill out, this is why you have heavy moister inside your refrigerator. Remember cold air is dry air, look at the water running off top of camper when ac is on, the ac is pulling the moister out of the air as its cooling the air. This will also penetrate the fan motors and ruin them. Contact the ebay seller if this is one of his fans. Mine is running strong and its 3 years old, no rust on it either. You can get a lemon on any thing you buy, but this does not make this fan a bad item to have. I love how mine makes my refrigerator stay cold even with hot outside temps. Contact the seller, let us know what he says.

Ok so this past camping trip was my first time using my fridge fan and honestly I didn't really notice any difference in cooling time. Maybe I didn't do it right but it still seemed to take almost 9hrs for fridge to really cool down to where I felt comfortable storing MILK.

It was 100 degrees outside though, but so was the last time i went out pre-fan.

My fan just arrived in the mail today. I'll give my impressions on it after I get it installed.

i have a thermometer in mine. the temp does not change, but the fan does keep condensation/ice off of the fins in the back.... other than that, i dont see much difference
