Our 2007 Executive came with a residential refrigerator. The normal side vent did not have the louvers cut out and there was not an upper vent either.
I've sealed both the side vent and the upper vent on all the residential refrigerator conversions.

What inverter do you have?
What size and how many house batteries do you have?

The Samsung RF18 will run easily on most 2000w Magnum or Xantrex inverters. Some choose to install a small pure sine wave inverter but it will run just fine on a modified sine wave inverter.
You really need at least four 6 volt batteries to run a refrigerator for any length of time.

I sealed the top vent with screen and spray foam when I installed my Samsung.
I used foil tape on the openings of the side vent and cut 2 inch foam to insulate the opening. This way I can still get to the back of the fridge easily. I just can't imagine why anyone would leave the vents functional since this is a residential fridge. My house doesn't have a big hole behind the fridge going to the outside.

Don't residential fridges require any kind of cooling ventilation for the motor?

It seems like there could be quite a heat build up if the back of the fridge is completely sealed in.

Our home Samsung operator manual said to leave an inch clearance on each side of the fridge ventilation.
