Solar-powered RV Fridge Vent System?
What's your opinion on a Solar-powered RV Fridge Vent System?

This past summer my fridge struggled to keep cool (at the appropriate temp). I ran on propane with it set on the coldest setting, TT was very level, purchased a fan for inside the fridge. Freezer was good. My items came from the home fridge so it shouldn't have had to work to hard.

So now I'm wondering about a Solar-powered RV Fridge Vent System. CW has one for a reasonable $$ amount.

The output is just enough to run the fans.
It is on my "Must buy" soon as I get some loose cash list.
Along with several hundred bucks worth of other stuff.

They work great. We had one on the previous slide in camper & I have installed one on the latest purchase.
Very easy install.
I cut into one wire and installed a toggle switch so when parked and not using the TT I can shut the fan off, there is no use of wearing out the fan for nothing.
