What to do with Metal sheet around the fridge

Any ideas on what to do with the metal sheet around the fridge?

I went from propane to an electrical fridge. Do I still need the metal sheet?

Thanks!

Are you referring to the shroud that keeps exhaust gas from entering the trailer? Mine was made of fiberglass, and I took it out when I switched to an electric fridge. Removing it should help keep the fridge coils cool.

Thanks Vince. That's what I thought it was for. So I don't need it anymore.

The first (upside down) picture in this thread show the part that I'll remove today:
About the fridge opening...

By Electric fridge, do you mean one with a compressor vs. the absorbtion type?

Perhaps not, but It is best to seal off the outer side, so the heat is disipated to the outdoors, from the inside where you may be trying to keep cool. Esp if you have an A/C in the trailer. Your fridge at home discharges heat into your house and your A/C has to work against that.
