One other thing - I did not install a switch on mine. I simply remove it from the fins when I am done to turn it off - simple. I lay it down with the clip going through the rack and it keeps it from moving around.

So it really just hangs there by the clip?

Ok, thanks.

I have to do a little work to get mine powered as the lead on the fan is not long enough to reach any power when fished though the drip hole.

Yep - that clip holds it just fine. I ran my power line down the drip tube then down under the fridge to my load center. It has a dedicated fuse. I have also seen people tap into the +12 that goes to the fridge and I don't see any issue with that either.

I have a 33rlds and noticed the pantry next to the refer got real hot( a gap in the wood did not help either) I took some expandable foam and sealed it up.
This is a poor design by jayco, it melted butter and made things too warm.
Im gonna look at installing a fan to circulate the air

I saw this thread and decided to try a fridge fan, but I'm cheap. I used an old CPU fan and mounted it to the fins with a couple of alligator clips. I'm impressed with the results, camped for a week at Yellowstone and had to turn the temp down on the fridge! One of the best mods you can make!

I wanted to buy one of these fans but the guy on eBay will not ship to Canada, he won't even take questions. So all this fan is is a HDD fan for 3.5" hard drives. I bought 3 of them from China for less that 5 bucks shipped. I was wondering if anyone could take a pic of the wiring for me. I under stand that the + runs below but is the - just going to an alligator clip that is attached to the fan?

An I'm sure it's already been mentioned in this thread but I don't remember reading it, what do you tap into for the +?

I have some pictures I'll post on a few days. I taped into 12v in the back of the frig, assessable from the out side of the camper.

Don't get confused

When reading this thread it jumps back and forth between fans in the fridge and fans in the outside compartment.

Don't get confused when reading it. Many say either one will help with the cooling.
