RV Fridge Aux. Fan

I've been looking at these add-on fans that are supposed to make your fridge run more efficiently..

We have a small trailer with a Dometic RM2351.

It looks like some of them hook up to the interior light for power. Ours does not have an interior light.

Does anybody have any experience with these??

Thanks, Joe

Fans are OEM equipment on some setups. If the fridge is in a slide and the exhaust vent is not on the roof but the sidewall, they have to have fans.

Usually, you don't need fans on normal roof exhaust vent setups.
That being said, it doesn't hurt either. Dometic has a kit to run it off the refr's power and off a t-stat so you don't have to do anything special but turn on the fridge and they run when needed.

Think he is referring to an interior fan...
Haven't put one of these in, but have considered it. Have heard reports that they do help with the cooling inside the fridge.

You should look at the Fridge Fix interior fan. It is a great product and helps speed cool down and eliminates ice build up on the fins. Lots of posts on this topic.

Not sure of the brand name but we got a few of the small battery operated fridge fans and put one in the fridge and one in the freezer and it made a huge difference in how even it cools, no more frozen drinks in the back of the fridge.

The Fridge Fix is powered from outside the fridge. The wire is run down the drain tube and then connects to 12 volt power. Takes 15-20 minutes to install. The battery powered fans are no where near as effective because they don't blow across the fins. Google Fridge Fix to see the product.

Just looked at Smart RV Products Fridge Fix. Looks like an easy install. Next on my list of mods. Thanks for this.
