Installed a 120mm internal fridge fan.
Fan used is a dual ball bearing, low speed 15mm thin version, it's very quiet but still moves 32cfm.

Used screws to attach alligator clips on the top two back corners, the bottom two on the back have rubber fan mounts holding on the bottom of the grill. Should provide cooler and more consistent temps.

Searched for 2hrs for my propane leak on our brand new trailer. Turns out the one of the kids turned on the range. Shes 4, and never messed with the one in our last trailer, but once i told her it could blow up, she knew it was bad and not to touch.

Checked wheel lugs and tire air pressure. Hooked up and took the rv for a 20 mile ride to warm the bearings. Raised the wheels off the ground, did some wheel spinning and added a few shots of red and tacky to each wheel. Flushed water heater and installed a new anode rod. Opened up the slides and gave the rack and pinion under the slides a good dose of dry lube. Getting ready for a week or more get away starting Monday.

Tested the new parallel kit and generators to make sure they work as stated. No problems here.

Washed the roof and then realized the rest needed washed now that the roof dirt ran down the sides. Turns out oxyclean and some laundry detergent cleans the roof, the trailer and the most remarkably the awnings (bye bye black marks).

Well it wasn't waxed to begin with. I'll probably do that this spring.

Do you have any pictures or parts info for what you used under it? I want to build a desk for the kids that flips up like this.

This is what I used, but you may want a set of 16" ones.

Today it finally got warm enough that I put our slides out, added the Body Spa Oxygenics Shower, got our electric fireplace out there going to start fitting it under our tv where the cupboard doors are.

Think it's wise to place a large heat source right under your TV??

Our fireplace is under the TV. The fan shoots the air out to the trailer, no issues yet.

Think about all the tv's sitting in the 52' semi-trailers in mid-summer.

Not an issue when they're not turned on.

I think it all depends on where the 'boards' were assembled with the gov's restrictions on using real lead solder verses the 'cold' solder being used in this day and age. Maybe not?
