Our 2013 Redwood 36RL has a cabinet between fridge and convection oven, side next to fridge is always hot, hot days with sun on road side will increase temp to touch on the wall, varm any other time. Does anyone else have same problem, and what did you do to remedy situation?. Thanks for all the help.

I have the same coach. I placed a prop under the door at the top of the fridge to off load some of the heat build up. I thought about putting vent slots in the that door to accomplish the same thing. But as yet we are only just four weeks old and we are doing other fixes. Good luck.

We also have a 35RL and the heat build up is substantial in the cabinet next to the fridge as well as the small space above it. Some kind of ventilation would help the situation. I don't think it's enough heat to cause a fire but it isan issueto keep an eye on.

A couple of more reasons for Redwood to offer a residential fridge option, I'm hopeful they will be offering them soon, I will not havea Dometic/Norcold in my fiver

Just noticed water on the floor under the fridge. got to checking and found the water line to the ice-maker was laying against a hot area of the fridge (from outside) and put a small spary hole. I was able to tape the line up for a quick/temporary fix. I could not find a cut off valve outside so I will be adding one this weekend. I did move the hose so it was not resting on anything warm.

Happy camper check under your sink way in the back. May have to use a light and mirror to see it but the ice maker water line has a cutoff there. At least ours did.

Ref the hot area next to the refrig. I also have the same heat problem. Upon checking I see that there is a sort of pipe to vent the refrig heat up. I am thinking to put some insulation like Redwood did on the furnace. Something that will not burn or melt as there is no insulation there just pipe vent,air,wood. Another nice job on the Redwood design. Cut corners I guess.
