Mounted a single computer power supply fan on top of the external cooling fins. Amazed at the difference. Cool down was 1/3rd to 1/2 the time. I use a manual switch to control it. Since most of time I'm in parks with power I don't worry about running the fan all the time. Just be careful not to cool the ammonia can at the bottom. It's supposed to be hot. The little battery operated internal fans help to keep everything in the refrigerator at equal temperature.

Have dual fans inside the refrigerator hanging on the fins and the temp holds around 33°-35° constant even in the hottest weather we've had.
Looks good.
Do u have a filler panel at the top of that access panel?

That filler panel is what I cut the circles in to mount mine

The can at the bottom is the accumulator tank and just stores the liquid ammonia. If the fan is doing it's job, the can should be cool. The ammonia is pulled from the tank and boiled in the stack.

Don't have a filler panel as far as I can see up the cavity. Will know more when I take the roof vent cover off. Will definitely take pictures.

I never even seen it before .
Then when I was deciding on whether to mount fans in upper end of vent stack via taking of the top vent cover I seen this filler panel.
When I removed it (two screws) I could see all the way up to the top vent cover.
So what better place to mount fans.

If it doesn't work out I'll make a new filler panel.

Mine is obviously obtained from bottom.

I'll need to get better lighting to take a few better pics.
