I slipped mine out (it slips out) and let it hang down in the corner. See the picture in post #146 earlier...

I'll give it a try- do you think it will help the freezer?

It should help both....did you try the refrigerator guard accessory? I really think that it helps also.

I do not understand how the water in the drain hole makes a difference? I would think it would drain right through. Is there a trap?

If there is not a trap then there must be something to retain the water. Would not that same device retaining the water keep air from entering the cavity and blowing out the flame.

I am currently escaping the rains in the Carolinas and believe my refrigerator goes out while traveling. How do I know, I don't, only that the temp in the refrigerator goes up while driving.

I still have the older model 6.0, the new model is awaiting instal upon my return home.

No I haven't - I really haven't been using the trailer, just testing the fridge, making sure it works correctly first.

I believe the water keeps warm air from entering the drain hose,which then enters the refer, the water is held in a little plastic container on the back of the refer, I had pulled my hose out and inserted it into a drain hole, my mistake. I reinstalled it back into the container where water keeps it sealed. I believe I was blowing out and that is the reason for the partial vent cover. It seemed to work my last 6 hour trip home.

It looks like the whole thing ( box w/wire inside) as opposed to just the wire, will slip down or pull out, is that correct?
Thanks,

Someone along the way mentioned the "dollar bill test" for the seal, I'm assuming you can not slip a dollar bill between the seal and the frame of the fridge, is that right?

You will be able to pull on it, but should meet some decent resistance. If it slips out easily, there may be a problem.

No, the box is screwed into the back, the wire slips out....
