Anyway hope to see you next adventure to TV RV.

Had the mobile tech come out yesterday to install the auxiliary fans. He took one look at the size of the frig and said that he would not touch the job on his own. Apparently in order to properly do the job the frig must.be pulled out so that external fans can be placed at top of heat exchanger and so the internal fan can draw power from the power block and not the light

That is correct, the unit is quite heavy, the shop that pulled mine used a transmission jack. The fans are shown on drawings on a shelf just below the condenser, Still they are open impellor doesn't matter where in the air stream as long as the vent upwards.

It is my understanding that the frig has 2 standard exhaust fans at the top of the condenser. As suggested by this forum I have purchased a bar rvcoolingunit.com that contains an additional 3 fans on a thermal switch

It appears that your thread has been hijacked. You have a propane/elec refrig. and everyone is talking about a Whirlpool problem. I have the same year and problems and hope that we both can get some forum answers.

Last 5 posts refer to model 1350 4 door units. Fans are required for this unit. Dometic not Whirlpool.

I broke down today under desperation and installed the fans inside of the fridge. We are getting ready to leave on a week and 1/2 trip and hope it does the job.
