Fridge-Fix for Norcold 1200 or 1210 best modification

I have to say, the Fridge-Fix, that I recently installed on my Norcold 1200 series fridge in my Embark is amazing. Almost no extra power draw and the fridge is many times colder, stuff on the bottom is cold and stays cold. Also the recovery time from opening doors is way better, as was the cool down from storage in my garage.

At first I thought it was a lot to spend but way less than replacing the Norcold with a conventional fridge and now it actually works. Could not be happier and one of the best modifications so far.

Hi Crossingover, who makes your fan? I like that it has switches, so that it doesn't have to be on all the time!

My Fridge-Fix has an on/off switch too.

I thought we would wait until after the first of the year to order, since most would be in a deep freeze! Messed up they jumped the price $20 bucks.

RV Cooling Unit Warehouse in Memphis TN. Excellent quality and pricing for the extended width (triple fan) unit. Separate switches for the quiet fans and LED strip. Check them out. Easy 2 wire install (be sure to lube the power wires with soap before snaking through the defroster drain tube).

Fridge-fix made a huge difference in my fridge as far as cool-down time and maintaining the temps in hot weather. It sure is pricey but well worth it.

RV cooling unit warehouse is a lot cheaper.
Any issues with the way it mounts using velcro ?
