There is no way to roof vent it if it is on a slide out like the 330 and 351 rlts.

I think we all agree on that point.

A friend of mine took his trailer to the dealer four times for poor cooling in the fridge. They replaced the cooling section, then they replaced that cooling section, then they put in a new fridge. Still not cool on hot days. Last time in they added a fan. His fridge was in the slide, and the install manual for his fridge said if installed in a slide a fan must be installed for proper cooling.

My fridge is in my slide out and works very well. The first time the fan came on it was 90 degrees outside. I was aware of it and knew it would come on at some point. I just happened to be out by the hitch when it started. I read in a mod forum where a guy added two computer fans to his lower inside vent. They have a 80 degree set point to start up. If my fridge struggles down the road I'll do the same.

The fridge in my trailer is counter height so only has upper and lower vents on the side wall. This weekend was my first trip with temps > 100 in town and the fridge managed to get near 50 degrees before I got up to cool country where it worked just fine. This is with the blue fan inside the unit. I'm going to have to add some kind of fan to outer compartment.

It was 106 degrees on 2 days this last weekend. The fridge worked well on gas and I switched it to electric and it worked the same, 34 degrees. Fridge setting was on 4 of the 5 settings. I think this fridge works better than the one in my last 5er that had the roof vent. I just hope the fan doesn't go out.
