Evaporator fan for fridge

Hello fellow Streamers!
I have a 2017 25fb international with a full size Dometic fridge. I am wanting to add a evaporator 3 fan unit from rv cooling parts warehouse for about 80$ to improve cooling . How do I go about finding 12v power ?
Iím also adding a fan behind the refrigerator to push air up the chimney since a vent at the roof level seems more involved . We camp a lot in direct sun and use our awnings with solar shade . If anyone has installed one of these evaporator fans inside I would greatly appreciate your advice since I am a better carpenter than I am an electrician

Your choice of evaporator fan(s) for the interior is my least recommended solution. The bang for the buck just isn't there if you are truly a marginally gifted carpenter capable of a DIY install. You will get better performance from adding little computer fans to the back of your refrigerator.

However, if you are committed to the purchase and interior compartment approach because of the marketing literature then you can get power from the interior light bulb housing or pull a wire pair through the condensation drip outlet under the fins to the power takeoff at the back of the reefer.

Check out this thread for solutions others have completed. My reply is #8.
