Look on the outside of the coach for an exhaust vent. You will find two vents, one for the water heater and then one for the coach heater. You could fire up the heater and see which one has hot exhaust coming from it.

On the outside of the coach is how you find the furnance and water heater. The lower right is the furnace access panel and the round hole is the exaust port. On the lower left is the water heater access panel. Yours will look the same except for the colors of course

That white vent above the water heater is the back of the fridge.

Wow, looking at that layout, putting the water heater exhaust directly below the frig air inlet is a really POOR engineering design. You want as much cool air as possible going into the frig.

But if you start having temp issues issues with the frig, check that hot air from the water heater is not short circuiting into the frig air inlet.

This design earns the Dumb as a Box of Rocks Certificate.

Hi Ken, it could certainly give one that opinion by looking at that photo. However, the Dometic inside runs on #2 out of 5. The fridge stays @ 33 and the freezer @ -10. It's also 14 years old, still waiting on temp issues

You are lucky you have a Dometic. Much better performers than the POS No-Colds
