exhaust fan

None that I know of but I have never pulled cover off of the top.

I read somewhere that it is convection cooled so I doubt there is a fan.

Where in NM are you?

Ventillation for Appliances

Well, I saw some wires up inside the shroud and assumed there was a fan that helps control the flow of propane? I could not see where it exhausts or how to change the fan....probably another discussion thread. I work on the base and live 60 minutes from Las Cruces at the base of the Sacramento (Rocky) Mountains. So, we get hot during the day and cool at night here.

You definitely need free airflow behind the refrigerator, vented bottom and top. There have been many posts about small fans behind the coils to increase airflow on the hot summer days as the absorption refrigerators aren't very efficient then. As long as you have it all open I would think about installing one now while it is easy. This is but one of many threads on this site that deal with refrigerator problems and airflow.

You also need to seal this completely from the interior of the trailer to prevent CO infiltration from the flame. Basically consider this area of the trailer as outside space with as much free outside airflow as you can get.

I am not replacing the domestic with a 3-way fridge, only a small 110AC unit and a microwave. However, your idea about adding a fan is good one. I will check the site for posts to see if there is one up in the exhaust flue. It may be possible to add one behind the fridge.
