exterior fridge fan mod question

I have read about owners placing a fan in the area behind their fridge that would draw the hot air in the area up to and out the vent. Can't seem to locate any of the threads. Can anyone help me out?

How difficult is it to remove the roof vent cover to install the fan? How do you go about it?

The roof vents I have had have 4 long screws on the top. Easy access.

...... just remember to put some caulk back over the top of the screws when you re-install the vent cover.

Do the screws actually go into the roof? Do I use the same holes? Should I caulk anywhere else around the screws or just the heads? Sorry about all the questions, its just that my TT is stored far away, and when I go to do it, I have to be totally prepared! I have limited time and tools there.

Do you really even need to remove the top piece? I've seen pictures of fans installed right inside the side access panel to blow air across the coils in an upward direction. That's probably how I would do it too in order to avoid breaking the seal up there.

The 4 screws go into the plastic base of the vent, not the roof.
