Thought I had previously posted this.

Recently I installed two fridge cooling fans on my van for the three way fridge.  Reason being that in extreme heat the fridge cooling system will not operate effectively. 

I got mine from HERE off eBay.

Basically it has two fans attached to the top vent that come on at a set temperature and turn off when cooled.  Full instructions for installation are included.

...

The unit is fully programmable

...

Connects to pos and neg connector on rear of fridge.  Make sure these are the wires that turn off with your master switch

...

Fans attach to the upper vent with provided bolts

...

Simple brushless computer fans that are extremely quiet.  I cannot hear it from inside the van

...

The probe attaches to the piping

...

Control unit gled to wall at bottom of fridge compartment.  All turned on ready to go

...

It is amazing the amount of hot air that is drawn out of the rear compartment when it is running
