Those look like dent pullers that are used by body shops to remove dents in the body panels of cars. I have a pair of cheap ones that don't work at all to remove dents.

Harbor Freight has the single cup dent puller type shown by Pam in both plastic and aluminum. I've tested quite a number on steel store shelving and the lids of gallon body filler cans which happen to be nearby. I didn't find many that held reliably. They also have the double cup "dumbbell" glass lifter type. I have four (selected from about a dozen available). Two of them seal reliably to hold the rope ends on my tarp awning. You (and I) get what you pay for. Surface can't have much curvature or the double cup design won't seal both ends.

I don't understand the idea of shading the vent on the outside for the fridge - please explain? I really like the reflecting shades on the outside windows - I will definitely keep that in mind. My trailer cushions were just picked up for reupholstering!!!! Camping can't come soon enough - we have not had our Trillium 1300 out yet - bought her in Oct last year!

Might help the fridge to cool better. That, and some fans blowing up from the top of the bottom vent.

Have jerry rigged.....but very poorly...... a silver reflective shade screen over the fridge vent before in 100 degree weather when there was no ability to be in the shade. Wind was not kind to my makeshift arrangement, but , when in place, it did made a substantial different in the gas cooling ability of the fridge.
Just want to figure out a more wind proof version.

That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Most of our fridges do not perform well in high temps and with sun beating down on the outside fridge vent. It been proven out by many people here that if you can increase air movement in the outside vent area by putting a fan into it that blows over the rear of the fridge the better the fridge will work in hot temp. The hope is that by providing some shade to that area it will create a l little cooler air to blow over the rear of the fridge helping it out even more.
