The thermostat is a 1F81-261 by White Rodgers. Only reason I used it was because I had it lying around extra. I dont really like it because it is too slow to react to changing temperatures. Works fine in a house, but in the TT it causes too much of a temperature swing.
Most digital thermostats will work fine on a 12 volt system. They are basically just relays in there and will power off the batteries rather than requiring 24 volts. A lot of folks use the inexpensive Hunter digital stats that they carry at the Walmart.
Yeah, I just ordered the fan from your link to ebay. I started my fridge up for the first time last weekend and it took quite a while to get to temp and there was no food in it. Based on everything I've read I believe it will do a good job especially when I have a bunch of food in it.
I also wanted to mention that my trailer is a 2009 and my fridge has the light in it. I was supprised to see it from what I had read on the forums. But it should make for an easier installation than going through the drain tube.
I'll probably head down to walmart or a hardware store after work and pick up a thermostat. Looking forward to that mod. Thanks for the help!
I love doing mods so if you come up with any others, let us know! The only thing I've done so far is add gutter spout extensions to try and reduce the black streaks. I also plan on adding a 2" reciever on the bumper for bike racks and a drain valve for my water heater instead of the plastic plug. Last weekend I bought a Coleman roadtrip grill that uses 1lb propane tanks. I'm going to look at teeing into the propane line near the water heater with a quick connect fitting. That will allow me to tap into the TT propane system instead of the 1lb bottles.
