    The Dometic refrigerator in our Riverside Retro Trailer was getting extraordinarily hot in the cavity behind. The wall of the bathroom next to the kitchen was getting dangerously hot during the day.

    To mitigate the heat, I had added a Dometic fan earlier last year but it was noisy, ran all day and did not move enough air, leaving the wall hot to the touch. So, last week I went to Home Depot (crass commercial plug for my employer) and got the aluminum angle, cordless soldering iron, fasteners and supplies to add two new fans. Using  Ray’s suggestion, I went with the quiet computer fan, purchased two fans and wired them together. Here are the photos of my work and completed job.

    Thank you Ray for the inspiration.

    Greetings sir. It works well.

    Together the fans move a great deal of air. I’m hoping I can begin to use the refrig on electricity now. Previously the refrig would not cool unless I ran it on LP which in turn added more heat.  The Dometic fan I installed last year was very noisy and didn’t move much air.
