Fridge vent fans

Hey all
To bob miller.
Bob, you mentioned in a previous post about installing a fan and baffle system when installing a new fridge. I'm going to get a new 3 way fridge for our 325. Could you elaborate on the fans and baffle setup you suggest. Moving hot air out of the back area is a good idea. I thought of putting a 10 inch fan on the access door. What say you. Seems like a better idea, to move the hot air up and out. Thanks. DJ

2 4" fans will fit perfectly into the chute above the refrigerator, don't forget to install a baffle as Airstream didn't, there is to much free dead air space between the coils on the back and the wall. Regards, Bob

thanks Bob,
I though that's what you meant. 4 inch computer fans low amp draw super quiet, and they move a lot of air. Basically , block off the big square hole, so only the fans draw the air . I wonder if new RVS have this setup. One would think so... I'm going to put some filter material on the assess door too, to keep bugs and dirt from getting behind the fridge.
Thanks Bob. DJ

hello all,
To Bob Miller,
Sorry to bug you, these fans, 12 volt, 120 volt, do they make one that is both voltages? You wouldn't by chance have a model number?
Here's a weird question . When your on 110 , does your 12 volt stuff still work? Or was the unit designed to switch between voltages. My 325 has some awful thick wiring for stuff like overhead lights
Thanks. DJ
