Blue fridge fans. Love them.

Per all the great feedback I purchased one of the blue 12v fridge fans. Works great but still noticed it would only keep 1/2 of my fins from freezing. Decided to purchase a second one and have them installed on top of the fins blowing downwards. Now my fins don't freeze over at all, and the fridge stay right at 36* running it on the lowest setting.

I bought a blue fan thingy and also installed twin 120V muffin fans above the condenser coils. Made a big difference in the fridge temps.

I'm not thrilled with the alligator clip mounting method though. I'm thinking of how to make it better.

Since they work so well, one wonders why the fridge manufacturers don't include them hardwired in (yeah, I know, they're cheap).

I'm not crazy about the alligator clips either but haven't figured out a better way to mount them. At least by putting them on top of the fins blowing down, they don't take up any usable space inside the fridge. Please post if you figure something out.
Lady Fitzgerald,
I wonder the same thing. I would think they would take the same concept and maybe even offer it as a "Jayco add-on". Heck they could probably charge 5 times as much as the guy on ebay does and would sell the crap out of them just by having the name associated with. If 6 months from now they come out with, we get the credit. lol

I just occasionally move the fan if I want to defrost another section, but so far it has not iced up that bad overall.

As far as the clip - I think it works rather well. Good on/off switch..lol...simple yet effective.

Have any of you had to snake a wire out of the fridge to get a 12VDC connection? I have read the instructions on eBay, but I want to ask the "Jayco Mod Experts" how they did it on their units? What gauge wire did you use? Did you put an inline fuse on the wire?
