Personally I feel like the inside fan is more beneficial because it helps keep even temps throughout the interior of the fridge. I think the outside fan is also worthwhile, but would do the inside first if I had to choose.

Does the ebay fan work with any TT fridge? More specifically the fridge in my 26BHS?

As long as you can get 12 volts to it, yes. Some of the older fridges has constant power to the internal light circuit. The new ones you have to run a thin wire down the drip tube. You can either run back to the load center or tap into the 12 going to the fridge circuit board. Most important thing is to have an inline fuse at the tap. No real need for a switch, you just unhook it from the fins.

It is really just a simple computer fan setup. You can actually get it for around $4, but the guy that sells them pre-wires it all up and adds the clip,etc. I figure for that and the great idea - he deserves $15.

I got my fan delivered this week. I will install it this weekend. We have a 5 day trip over Labor Day and I will see how much of a difference it makes.

I just installed mine and used it for a 2 day weekend and did not seem to make a huge difference. Unlike others I was not able to reduce the temperature setting on my fridge. I would guess, but don't know for 100% sure, that the temperature in my fridge was probably a bit even.
