LOL, I figured that's what he was referring to. Seagulls in Tennessee but what do we know, we don't have beaches.

Yes, the raven is wise,
His beak’s not agape.
To perch on a trailer
T'must be the right shape:
a chardonnay grape,
Delicious for gait.
And so the Escape,
Adhesive as tape,
Is just the right shape,
For the raven’s landscape.

In warm ambient conditions, if the fridge is less than 42F, the freezer should be cooler... but the proper temperature isn't just below freezing, it's 0 F. If all you use the freezer for is ice cubes and chilled vodka, barely freezing will do.

As I mentioned before, the conditions in which I found the freezer contents actually thawing was when the outside temperatures were so low that to maintain something like 42 F in the fridge, the unit didn't have to run at all... so the freezer was about 42 F as well.

Now I get it, but that's never been a problem in my experience. Must be repetitive opening of the fridge for a beer.

So just in case anyone is interested, after one fairly long discussion with Reace and a short follow up we're planning to put the Texas fan on our build sheet. Reace did not push this option -- he presented the fact that he's doing something different during installation, mentioned all the things that have been mentioned on this forum (battery operated fans to move air inside the frig, ice packs, parking in the shade, but we decided to go ahead so that if we're in Arches some summer, 19 miles from town and the frig runs hot we'll just accept it and won't kick ourselves in the head for not getting the fan.

Are the fans on the Texas Fridge option, thermostatically controlled or just time cycled, or manual switch?

Some clarity on some options
