That is the Low Ambient Air Temp sensor
Temps below 50*F it closes to control freezer/food compartment temps by either extending cooling cycles or turning on the defrosting element if temps are too cold
Pg 15 Section 5.3

External Fans are controlled by t-stat attached to far right condenser fin
Turns fans on when fin temp reaches 149*F...turns fans off when fin temp drops to 122*F control temps +/- 9*F)

We have a roof vent and one side vent. We can't access the fan area without pulling the fridge out. Is there any way to tell if the exterior fans are working?

Les, I have the same fridge, in a slide.
I only occasionally hear that fan run, usually in 80+ weather, when the sun is shining on that side of the coach.
