Right !.......sort of.......... I always place these fans directly on the highest vent opening which is the hot air exhaust, whether that is on the upper side wall or under the fridge roof vent.

Dan,

Our 63 Safari had a floor vent also, one computer fan mounted inside on the screen made a 5-10* difference on hot days. It's really surprising how much cooler the air is under the trailer.

I have one of the Snyder's kits and it does work well. It consists of a PVC gutter which spans the cooling fins with a muffin fan mounted below it blowing up. It is thermally switched and fused. It is effective and has lowered my fridge temps considerably. On the highest cooling setting the fridge compartment has had temps as low as 29f this summer. That said, I am concerned that if the fan fails, all airflow will be blocked over the cooling fins. Because of this concern, I am going to remove it and place a larger fan just under the roof vent.

Good idea!

I stopped using Stu's kits due to the small size of the fan and it's limited airflow, and for the exact reason that you brought up. I also do a lot of larger RV fridges that require significantly more airflow that the kit provides....hence the multiple fan installations.
