I purchased a small little retro 12v fan to use when the MaxxFann is not in use. It is made for trucks and has a small footprint, I mounted it on a small piece of cedar. Also a picture of the plastic wheel chocks in use, I shortened the threaded bolt and they work fine, upside down. Anyone want to buy some B@l X Chocks- slightly used- real cheap??

Jim, I didn't notice any exposed insulation over the refer. I can open it up again today and pay a little more attention to the surrounding area. I"ll get back to you.

Yes, on mine there was a 12" x 6" piece of missing insulation and the fg shell was exposed. Looks like they removed a piece and then decided to cut elsewhere and did not replace the reflectix. No big deal but I felt it may make it colder than normal and wanted to stop any cold drafts.

Jim, I almost purchased the same retro fan at an auto parts store, but put it back. Is it whisper quiet as they state? I have two other fans, plastic, and the DC one is noisy. I'd like to replace that one for a quieter one.

It is quiet on the low speed, not on high. Available at Amazon

Actually I have a bookmark and every purchase helps the ASPCA, did you know you can specify a donation? http://smile.amazon.com
As a stay at home caregiver, I do a a lot of on line purchases due to being housebound if I'm not away camping.

Jim, I opened up the area above the refer and find that there is no insulation on the roof as you've reported. Do you think that was intentional or an oversight?

I do not know, there was some in my area, where the white ceiling covering ended it had been cut for some reason. My area is over by the refer ceiling vent thru the roof. Either way you can stick some up there if you want or just seal the area at the front instrument panel like what I did. I do not think it will do any harm uninsulated. It does not seem to affect the freezer temperature any.

Jim, I also have some white ceiling covering material in that area that was cut off. I'm sure it was just quick and easy during construction to leave it that way. It's not intended to provide insulation.
