Unless you have a high wall pop-up, chances are the fridge is a Dometic 4223 - used on most all the Forest River standard height pop-ups and a-frames in recent years.
Forest River also uses a Dometic installation kit - the grills for both upper and lower vents are Dometic parts. They are also a very poorly designed grill - mine won't pass wind in a hurricane. Because the Dometic grills are so resistant to air flow, the fridge doesn't work as well as it should. Several of us with A-frames have installed computer cooling fans on the upper grill to get the air moving out the top and the fridge working correctly. With the fan on, I have to turn the cooling way down to prevent the fridge from freezing the contents - even in Texas-hot weather.
Final note, I strongly recommend getting a battery-powered wireless outdoor thermometer ($10 at Walmart) to keep track of how your fridge is doing.
