Hey there is a cool aftermarket gadget that does it. I think Grandpa got one and tried it in his Norcold and really likes it. Hopefully he will step in.

I have found a roof mount kit, but I don't think will work on the RW's since the fridge is in the slide out.

Here is the thread started by Grandpa on the aftermarket fan kit. http://www.redwoodowners.com/forums/...hlight=norcold

Would like to hear from him on how his retrofit is working???

I've been using the smart rv fridge fans for about 6 months. It helped immensely. I literally lowered the fridge setting a few numbers (9-7) after installing and the fridge stays the same temp as before. Probably takes about 20-30 mins to install.

I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Love it! We live in South Texas where the heat and humidity can be ferocious. This gadget was a life saver for us. One tip... We tend to overload the fridge. Just remember to leave room for the air to circulate.

no need for a pm --- you pay shipping and it's yours
