There is a good thread going on the Fiberglass RV Forum regarding refrigerator conversions that have been done. It is especially interesting to read about RV owners who converted to 12VDC compressor units with success;

Refrigerator conversion - Fiberglass RV

I have had 12VDC refers in 2 of my trailers, my T@da had dual 1.7 12v refers and my Eggcamper had a single 12v refer. They work fine in all weather and need no outside vent. However they are somewhat noisy and one can hear them operating inside the unit, contrary to the quiet operation of our current model, be it propane,electric or 12v, all 3 modes are silent.

Notice it has a built in fuse, on/off switch and long power cords. The attachment area is quite large about 2x4" on each end with the velcro. Well made with finished edges.

Now I need to decide if I'm going to drill a hole into the freezer floor above the attachment to help move air into the freezer or wait until later?

Jim, why add the fans if you don't have a problem with your fridge?

As I mentioned before, mine seems to cool fine, BUT helping it cool better can not hurt. Maybe I can set the thermostat back to one or two vs three or four. It is like increasing the efficiency of something that already works, just works with less effort.
