Maybe Dometic will supply it as a fix someday already cut out.
If you have the material you could cut it to fit the smallest "if it fits it ships" USPS free box for $6. I'm sure people will pay you $10 plus shipping for a proven fridge aid. Heck, if you tell me what it is I'LL sell it thru my website!

I spent $70 on the Fridge Fan fix (plus shipping) and doubt it really works based on all the experience out there to date.

Its just 3'X4'X1/4 armaflex sheets. Heck if you want to ship it out I will mail you a couple sheets and you can cut 2" X 8" sections and ship them out to people. If you made a template of the center section (2" X 1.5" with 1/2" cuts in the corners) and cut out the cross piece you could sell them. The piece for the channel I cut was 5/8 X 3" and the fit perfect into the rod channels. PM me if interested and I will ship the material to you. I just don't have time to do a bunch of shipping.

The Fridge Fan fix is still viable as it replaces the "D" cell battery fan which seems to always stop and it eliminates frost on the inside which also helps cooling. Plus the blue light accents the stock blue light, I like mine and intend to use it.

I have one of the first generation cube fans that run on two D cell batteries. I can run for an entire YEAR on two batteries and they're totally unaffected by temperature. It's those that have the cube fans with the On/Off switch that have problems.

Sometimes getting the FIRST build is better

Will you guys pul-eeze stop the nonsense. It ain't brain surgery to block an air leak. Go to Home Depot, spend 4 bucks or whatever on plain-jane window foam strips, or use a half-dozen cotton balls from your medicine closet, or just cut up an old sock! Case closed.

No need - Armaflex foam tape is sold at Home Depot in a 2 inch width by 20 ft or so for less than $10 (I've used it.) Folks could just pick up a roll and laminate it to the correct thickness.

Well I got a surprise tonite, I went out and removed my panel, guess what, mine is flush with no cut out slot for the lock rod. Entirely smooth under my panel?? I'll post a picture tomorrow, but until then did anyone else find a missing lock rod slot? Did they perhaps change the door, mine is absolutely smooth from side to side, top to bottom. I do have the bottom hinge slot opening which I encased, but no rod access?? Any ideas?
