And I noticed when I took off the refrigerator air vent on the outside. That there is a space that runs all the way up behind the refrigerator past the refrigerator to the roof. My question is being that I am not using it. Can I close off that area either by putting tape on the inside of the vent to stop the cold air from getting in behind the wall. Thanks
If you are not going to run the fridge
on either LP or electric there is no reason you can't "close off" BOTH of refrigerator vents.
However I would pull the 12V refrigerator fuse so it can't be turned on accidentally.
BTW I recently saw a video about "particularly/nearly covering the vents with cardboard" for more efficient fridge use in COLD weather.... but I can't find it.
