Unless the inverter is left on, the 110Vac fan mentioned above will not operate when not connected to shore power. Thus the need for fans that can operate off of battery power.

What cooling should I expect from a new fridge?

It may take two days on AC to get the fridge to its coolest. I will try the modifications. Also, make certain your trailer is fully level.

Suggest placing a level on the floor of the coach and noting the bubble positions with the level in line with the frame and cross frame. Then put the level inside the refrigerator and observe the bubble in similar orientations. You may find the appliance shelf is not in the same plane as the floor and one might need to compensate for that difference went setting up the trailer.

In the trailers with a refrigerator chimney, I think the suggestion for several 12Vdc manually controlled exhaust fans mounted close to the ceiling opening would certainly help move the air past the coils on a hot day. Perhaps, in addition, some fans also mounted lower in the cabinet directly below the coils blowing air upwards across the coils would be the best effort at cooling.

In the models with the two side doors and no chimney, I think the secondary fans blowing upwards across the coils as well as the exhaust fans on the top door would be optimum.
