I liked using it and will use again on my new unit. It kept the interior tempsmore even without up/down temperature swings.

Fridge

We also use the fridge guard, have the sensor off the fins, and have a circulating fan inside with a switch out side plus a switch that will bypass the thermocouple in the back and turn the factory fans on. When we leave home the fridge is full of precooled items and we try to replenish a small amount at a time. We do have the 2 door model in our 21 and have been happy with it even when we get up to 100 or so. This week we'll be in the 105 area and will watch it close as we do not take a cooler.

By now being out for months, our freezer is full of frost and not working as well as I suppose it would if not. Guess there is nothing to do but empty it out and refrigerator but they are full. The refrigerator is working great.

I'm waiting till we get our trailer to see if we keep the milk on the top or bottom, to determine which Frig Guard I get. I bookmarked their site long time ago. I also want to wait in case ETI changes the brand of the frig between now and when we get it. Hey, you never know.

I like the idea of putting stuff in smaller containers, such as boxes and what-not. We have a Container Store a few miles from here and I'm there, oh, more than once in a while.

That is what we do as well. The rods seems to come off, and the little shelf brackets don't work with the RMD-8555 because it has plastic shelfs. So the little clear boxes is what we use and they work just fine. i have thought of drilling holes in the bottom to promote air flow, but I haven't gotten around to that.

You want the small size, otherwise you will have to trim everything.

Hi: float5... For a fast defrost we used a blow dryer when plugged in. Just make sure your drain cup is empty so the defrost water can get into it rapidly. Alf
