Refrigerator fans

I have no prob with my refrig but after seeing the fans I am considering maybe putting a fan inside but am wondering if anyone has exprience with the D battery or the 12v ones. Which do y'all prefer? I am also thinking of putting a 12v fan in the vent area to blow on the rear coils. Thanks for everyone's opinion.

I have the one that accepts the two D cell batteries. It lowered the temperature by at least 5 degrees. I think the batteries lasted about 5 weeks if I remember right. I have a new 30 foot trailer now and the fridge is in the slide out. It has a 12 volt fan built into the back about 8-10 inches from the top. It is set to go on at a certain temperature. I've only heard it once when the temp was near a 100 outside. What is very popular now are two computer like fans that are blue and clip onto the fins on the inside of the fridge. I think there is a company that sells them that gives you instructions on how to hook them up. That is the route I would go if I were you or for that matter both systems. I think you will find the fans listed on the RV mod site or maybe here or RV.net. Good luck

Richard

Used min eyesterday for the first time. Turned the fridge on at 1 PM (on elec) 38 degrees by 5 PM. Couldn't believe it. It would have taken a full day to do that before. About 78 degrees outside. .
