Ventilation for fridge

Power is out. If I have to move the freezer stuff to the trailer, in the garage, how much venting do I need? (I can open the back garage door, away from wind, any amount, but the smallest safe amount is what I want to know.) Relatively small fridge in a 15. The garage is about 12 x 24 with a peaked roof.

Not knowing how your garage is constructed, if it does not have a ridge vent or soffit vents or a vent in either end if it has gables. I would not prop the door open any farther than the width of a brick, about 4 inches. If there’s venting, your doors are not real tight and it’s not sealed up and insulated, I’d say you probably already have adequate ventilation. That’s my opinion. Kind of hard to tell without being there.

OH, yeah, forgot the soffit vents. It does have them, I think. The doors are pretty tight (not drafty inside even if windy) but I can easily put just the back one open a bit. Crossing my fingers that I won't need it and power will come back on by noon. The whole island was out- now mostly just the south end.

Decided it was fine- doors were tight enough and I remembered I could easily raise the garage door anyway with power out, duh! But the power came back on by the time I had the freezer cold.
