Roo's are cool but for us it ran its course and we needed more storage and space so we can go on longer trips.

Good Luck with it & Happy Camping ⛺️

Corrected a minor water leak at a reducing bushing in my new water pressure tank.

Painted the step under the door.

Was finally able to install the fan vent cover. Not sure why more PUP don't have these on them. But we use the fan a lot and dont like having to close it when it rains. Very simple to install. And I made sure to use a bunch of Dicor 😀

I tore into my side vented Dometic fridge yesterday. Removed the upper cover (in my case it was screwed into the Filon skin), had a hard time getting the butyl tape to let go. Used a sharp putty knife all the way around and got it to let go finally.

I was greeted with a fridge cavity with very little insulation between the fridge case and the outer panels. Hmmmmm.

The fridge came with a 12 volt fan labelled 'Dometic), not very large and mounted wrong. Was a cheapo sleeve bearing fan, 120mm. Sleeve bearing fans should never be mounted horizontally, always vertically so it came out as well. Now I know why it was noisy, one season and the fan hub was sloppy. To the trash.

Ordered 2 120mm x 37 mm ball bearing fans from Flea Bay and made up the brackets while waiting. A new roll of butyl sealing tape for the vent cover should do wonders for increased air flow and better cooling plus I picked up a small roll of unfaced glass wool insulation at Lowes. I'm going to fill the cavity like it should have been filled in the first place.

At least FR installed an aluminum baffle over the top of the condenser to direct what little airflow there was from the single weinie fan.

The dual fans coupled with the correct amount of insulation should really improve the cooling of the fridge.. I hope at least.

Time will tell I'm sure. I do know that one weinie fan don't cut the mustard.

That solid shelf is going to block the air flow and create a warm area.

I doubt it, but thanks for the advice. If it does I'll TIG one up out of stainless but I think this will be fine. Click image for larger version

X2. There's a reason the shelves are made of wire!

Like I showed in the last picture there's plenty of airflow (I think, time will tell). I'd be a little more concerned if this was an absorption unit. It's a residential unit and I'm monitoring both sides of the shelf. I'll let you know what I find.

One hour on the bottom shelf, I'm going to put it on the top shelf and report back in the morning. Click image for larger version

Ok, technically, I did have to use a step ladder. Unfortunately, can't stand or kneel on this roof without a divot 😀
