One thing I just noticed is it looks like your fridge is in one of the slides, correct? If so, do some searching about how to add fans for additional cooling. As I understand it from here and over on RV.Net, fridges in a slide are not as efficient due to the venting being all in the wall vs the wall for the intake and roof for the exhaust of a non-slide mounted fridge. Some computer fans is all you need, and possibly a thermal switch for auto on/off if you so choose.

Good luck and hopefully some others with some more knowledge and experience with the fridge fan mod will chime in.
And in addition, before you add one do some checking because many are installed at the factory and no one tells you about it.

Nice rig, How does the build quality of the Denali compare to the Jayco. Roof and wall wise. The cabinets look like real wood doors. It is a SWEET looking camper. You will have to let us know how you like it and quality of the unit. Best of luck with it, its a nice camper

I got caught up in modding my rig and added one below. One day we heard a strange noise and it was the factory installed vent fan up near the top running.

My fridge is on a slide and in our 3rd season, never had an issue. Maybe if you live in Texas it may be a problem
