I'm a big fan of the Bora fan. I installed one in our Scamp because it's quiet AND it only draws 4 watts at full speed (which we never use) so it's great for boondocking.

The fan is approximately 8" in diameter. It has bare ends on the wire which is probably over 5 feet. Full specs available on Amazon. I can't figure-out how to include hyperlinks without using the way-too-many character URL; sorry.

Thanks - that's what I needed to know. I found it on Amazon but it didn't really provide much in the way of specs...thus the questions.

Well, at least nobody can fault your taste in music.

An inside-the-fridge shield to help reduce the impact opening the door has on cold air loss makes sense. That commercial version probably works better than what I done. Removed fridge bottom veggie bins because they wouldn't open with the stiff plastic in place.

For what it's worth....

Myron,
They offer a 25% discount to Escape- only $30 and you get to keep your bins

I like the bins because you can grab a bin and close the door and then spend 10 minutes looking for the smoked cheese that you forgot to pack in the first place.

It does make sense and when you look at the warning label Cruise America puts on their fridges it does back up the fact that each door opening has a price.
