    WOW!! This is the most awesome information you just shared!

    You are right... using the interior air is the key. My mind was glued to using the outside vents to help cool down the compressor & coils ala the Dometic/Norcold style. But as we know, the residential doesn't work in cold climates but theoretically "should" assist in the summer time. Wow, I am still astonished at the simplicity of the answer!

    Yesterday, I have blocked off the compressor compartment, disconnected the fan, and placed a light bulb inside in order to heat up the compartment. The outside temp is now 36 degrees and the compartment is at 55 degrees, and the unit is still not working well. Probably not enough heat

    Before this issue I was thinking about attaching a computer fan to assist the cooling of the compressor by forcing more air movement for the summer season. It seemed to me the cooling fan was on "constantly" on. But like you said, using the interior air during the summer and winter will act like I'm in the B&S. This should help.

    Man, thanks Bob. No lie, you're a life saver! You just made my life much easier. Thanks dude!

    I'm currently in Tacoma but will be heading back to LA next week for the Christmas with the family. Working on the fridge will be a priority when I get back, plus I hoping the warmer climate will make the fridge work.

    Thanks again! Have a great holiday season!! I just got an early Christmas present from you. 👍

    Take care,

    Bob... I was just reading your 2011 post on installing the Samsung residential. Great write-up! I installed mine earlier this year during the summer but I am now in Washington state where it's kinda chilly and having cooling problems with it. I have searched the internet and it seems like no RVer's who did the transition are having any cooling issues, maybe they are all snowbirds down south where it's warmer. However, the B&S owners are claiming if the ambient temperature is lower than 40 degrees, their Samsung residential located in the unheated garage are not cooling at all --- the freezer starts to warm up to include the refrigerator.

    That's the problem I am having right now. Did you have this type of problem, if so what did you do to overcome it?

    Thanks!

    Just a quick email to say thank you regarding your recommendation to use Florida Applied Films to remove the 3m shield. I had the 3m shield removed today and what a great job they did! Looks new!

    Thanks again,

    Bob Just wanted to say great job on the Samsung. After viewing all your posts and pictures. I ordered my fridge from Lowes yesterday and came home and ripped out my Norcold. Nothing I can't handle after viewing all you pictures. I have a 2004 Diplomat 40 PRB with a bathroom slide. I will try and be as proficient with project. Thanks for your help. Frank

    Just noticed your Wheatens. Great dogs! We have one and she is 8 years old. She is just getting used to traveling in the motorhome as compared to the back seat of the pick-up towing a 5ver. Maggie likes to camp and we're going to try Texas this winter, (Michigan weather is getting to me)!
