One hint: Get one of those fans that sit inside your refrigerator. Mine takes two D cells and will run for a month. Without some air circulation in there, things get frozen in the wrong places.
where did you buy your fan, I have found frozen things,,, the air circulation sounds smart!

Here is another reason for firing up the refrigerator a day or two before your trip - make sure it works! Mine didn't - Discovered I need a replacement cooling unit on a 1 year old Dometic. It's now going to be awhile before I can leave, but I'm glad I found the problem at home rather than on the road.

We use a frozen water jug instead of using the 12v. It works well for a couple of days. Bring a cooler for the beer. Look for block ice. It lasts longer. Don't drain the cooler until all the ice is gone or you need the room. Raz
