This is the original RM2510 5.0 cu ft fridge that came with our 2008 trailer. It struggles getting down to a good temperature in the hot weather but we think using these 'curtains' has helped a bit in reducing the loss of cooling.

Though you probably have to deal with higher temps consistently, we have never had trouble keeping our same fridge cold enough. We have only been near the mid 30°C range a few times though. It hit 30°C this past weekend, and set at 4 (out of 5), it was right down near 0°C inside.

Thanks.

I've seen towel warmers in fancy hotels, but never a towel cooler.

It looks nice and will load some food items later and report on the ease as well as recovery time and and reduction while loading. The refer rose several degrees during the install, if it reduces that rise I'd say it is successful.
