2010 27FB Intake for fridge?

Looking for the outside air intake for the refrigerator in our 2010 27FB? Taking it to burning man, and exploring ideas for how to use fridge w/o creating dust vacuum? Thanks all!

I would expect that the air intake is the louvered vent where the refrigerator service is done. Bottom, right outside the refrig wall. I think the upper vent goes through the roof on your rig.

Cary a couple of cans of compressed air, you can buy them at office supply stores, and blow out the compartment after dusty travel or days. These were a life, and equipment, saver after traveling the dirt roads in Alaska.

This will no doubt stir up all manor of controversy, mostly nothing short of if "you do this, your trailer will explode and the chain reaction will destroy every other Airstream at BM",

but,

We have taken our trailer a couple of times, and I simply taped a cheap furnace air filter over the louvered access door of the refer.

It helped quite a bit.

And my fridge did not overheat and catch fire.


Maybe will see you there.....

Regards,

JD

I think the fridge ventilation is barely adequate, even less than adequate if that side of the trailer is facing the sun, so I wouldn't do anything to impede the air. In warm weather we prop the door(s) open and that helps a lot with the cooling of the compartment.

Thanks JD. Had heard of the furnace filter approach, and will give that a shot along with the compressed air idea. Hopefully we will see you there. Will you be in the AS camp?
