I all so bought a temp. Control probe so they turn on and off depending on the temp inside the back fridge housing.

Temp probe is for exterior fans not interior.

Turbs,
I won't hijack your thread except for a couple of photos but here's my next project. We talked about this in the past.
It will be a partial permanent and partial folding cargo/bike rack carrier for the rear.
Got the brackets drawn up and cut out yesterday.
Will work on the framework next.
I'll start a thread about it as thinks move along.

Looks great!

I'll also be installing my rack once it's out of the shed!

I did allot of camping with the Winnebago in the black rock desert and installed two fans in the chimney of my fridge which greatly improved cooling on the hot 105* days. I also used a cool can inside the fridge. I'm gong to do the same to the Flagstaff
