I asked for a fan on the fridge exterior venting side - that is what Escape called it. Southern Arizona (like Texas) tends to be on the warm side in the summer.

Was strongly recommended by Kim at Escape when I inquired. I'm sure that we will go with one when we submit our build sheet. Anything to help the fridge/freezer unit stay cool. Doesn't have to be overly hot outside either.

Is it possible to pull the fridge out of its spot and add your own little cooling fan? Wondering, before (or if) I try this, what bolts/wires/etc would hinder the effort.

Myron,
You may have better luck at the rear with removing the vents. Also, depending on your unit, some Escapes have the roof vent. There is a nifty solar powered roof vent that is available.

Ah. Will have to get out there to see what my vent config involves. I sure don't want to drag out the fridge if not necessary. If a fan is employed to blow on the fridge elements I am guessing any vent could play a part in obstructing its efficient placement facing the tubes.

Thought my build sheet was complete -- just called Kim, but she said I should talk to Tammy about the fan. Does anyone have experience with and without the fan?
