installed my fan yesterday in the fridge and tapped into 12v source behind the fridge but its constant 12v once the tt is plugged in. Im prob going to install a on/off switch in the access panel incase I have the TT plugged in but the fridge turned off. two questions: my switch will be wired in line (obviously) but does it matter if i put the switch on the ground wire or 12v wire? also I ran my wires from the fan to the rear of the fridge through a existing white tube that had some caps on them. whats the purpose of this tube, pressure relief?

The tube is the condensate drain. You need to be sure to use small enough wire that water can still flow.

The switch can be on either side, but positive is best. Mine is built in and on the negative - I just clip and Unclip it from the fins.

I have a few pictures on in my webshots album. It was a very easy mod to do.

We went camping this past week-end and temps were 100+!! So I decided to order one of these after reading this and other threads about it!

I tend to use propane for my fridge to preserve those precious 30 amps so that the wife and daughters have plenty of electricity for important things like hair dryers. Will the fan run if I am running fridge with propane?

If you installed a 12v fan then it should run as the fridge still requires 12v when running on propane.

If you hook up the 12V fan properly, yes, it will run.

While there is nothing wrong with running the refrigerator on propane the rational of "preserving the amps" for other things is unjustified. The refrigerator only uses about 2 amps. Better to consider the real power hungry items like the air conditioner and the water heater.

Personally I use electric options whenever possible. The site cost already pays for the electric.
