Refrigerator venting

Have new refrigerator that runs on propane, 12V, or electric. My question is, if I run it only on 12V or electric do I still need to run a vent to the outside?..................thanks

Toastie, you still need to get the heat out from the rear of the fridge. Is that your question?

You need to vent so convection will carry the heat away. You need vents under of behind the unit so the air will flow. I just installed a new Dometic in my TW and they are very clear in the instructions about the need for proper venting.

Will you ever run it on propane?

If not then wouldn't a Dan foss be better than absorption cycle system?

Will have a vent at the bottom per there instructions, but I still don't want to cut a hole in the side. Looking at going with a computer type fan that will force the warn air out the bottom vent. The fans are 12V and have a 300,000 hours life expectancy, any thoughts..................
