Wow! I will have to try one of these fans... the little cheapy battery fans are $15+ dollars if this works... worth the $$!

Thanks!! I just ordered one. Perhaps you should be getting a sales comission.

So what does the fan do for you? Cool it down faster? I have a problem sometimes with my refrigerator needing to be defroster fairly often, maybe every 3 weeks. Will it help with that?

The cold air from the fins is better circulated with the fan and will keep the ice build-up, behind the fan, from the fins. It will NOT defrost your freezer compartment.

RV fridges are condenser type and thus have no air movement at all inside.

So anything that can be done to help with air circulation is a good thing.

Yes it will help with cooling, and help with preventing ice build up on the cooling fins.

One can use just about any 12V fan, like a computer case fan, you need to find a 'hot' wire at the light to power it - to make sure it stays on with the door closed.

This one looks cool in blue, 2 little fans and it improves everything all around and it cost less tha 3 gallons of gas

I bought the fan at CompUsa for $6.99 ($7.48 with tax)
Now I just need to put the alligator clips on the fan wires

Stupid question and I know it was said somewhere in this thread but dont want to re- read the whole thread, can you post a pictures of the back side of the fan or does it have another alligator clip to hold it inside the fridge on the fans?

got mine today (shipped super fast btw). i hooked it all up and i was expecting the fans to blow the air away from the fins. my fans are blowing straight into the fins. is this how it is supposed to be?

Yes, it recirculates the air back across the cold cooling fins, cools the air and the air keeps the fins dry. Twice the bang for the buck!

Another option for a fan is a fan specially made to circulate the air inside the fridg and sold by Camco. It uses 2 D cell batteries and will run for a full month before they runs down. On this fan you have a charcoal filter sachet that you can replace on a monthly basis. This fan dont take much room and it is extremely quiet. The price also is very quiet at $17.95.Canadian and in US it will probably cost less than $15.
