Air infiltration around fridge

Does anyone else have significant air infiltration around their fridge frame and control panel? I'm talking a breeze you can feel. I thought there was supposed to be a complete isolation from the gas ignition source to the inside living area. Would appreciate any advice, wisdom, insight... Thanks.

You can take off the control panel with 2 screws and it is attached with a long wire. You can then see outside (thru the refer lower vent) So yes there is cold air. I installed a piece of foam to fit inside that space and then reattached the control panel. Some people on FGRV have expressed opinions that the heat can be trapped in that space above the refer while on propane and suggested a baffle in the rear. It is on my list. I'm more concerned with insects getting inside from the refer exterior vents, so far none have found it. Other than the control panel it appears the rest of the area is sealed off.
