Venting gas class A basement storage

Hello. So I'm thinking of mods to do come spring. One of the things that bugs me is how warm/hot the basement storage gets on longer trips in high temps. When it's in the uppers 80's and 90's the basements get very warm/hot. To the point I can't keep my drinks stored in them as they get way to warm. I'm thinking of getting a computer fan to push air from inside the coach into the storage area and let it vent out through a screened opening I would cut into the compartment. I also have a fridge that runs in there and it would help with that too. It's not the fridge running as the other compartments that are separate get just as warm/hot. And it still gets warm even without the fridge running. The engine isn't running hot. Since this is our first MH I'm thinking this is normal for gas class A MH?

Has anyone done a mod like this. It would only be for running down the road and wouldn't run when parked. I just want to make the compartments a bit cooler. It would be nice to keep my extra drinks in the compartments instead of inside.

Better to have a bad day of camping than a good day at work!
