Maybe Ruth didn't buy the fridge?
It's not part of the standard package at Snoozy's site.
They do offer a propane/electric fridge for $700.00 extra.
(Plus $300.00 for a propane system.)

OOPS!
Too late to edit the above post...
I was wrong- a compressor fridge is part of the Lil Snoozy basic package.
Didn't think to look for it under "interior construction" at the webpage...

Fridge venting- needing solutions.

Okay, I have decided to tackle the Nova Kool fridge R1900 in my 2004 Trillium. It was hot last year....mid 30 plus Celsius for days at a time. I found the fridge was pitiful in cooling. Today I pulled it out in hopes of vacuuming the coils to clean it up. It was spotless! No dust or dirt on it. One thing I did noticed was that the light comes through this area and it must get very hot in the cavity where the fridge sits. There is no carpeting on the fiberglass shell in this area. I thought maybe some Reflective insulation would solve this. Any suggestions or advise about this idea would be greatly appreciated.
So I thought about venting! But do I want to cut a whole in my trailer?
Not really! Then when I read the thread I read about venting the cabinet where the fridge sits. I do have an extended counter top this might be a bit hard on the side where the fridge sits. But then I thought about the to of the cabinet or rather the counter top and putting a vent just behind the 2 burner propane stove? Or I can convert the cutlery drawer just about the fridge to a vent since it tends to be frustrating to use anyway. At this point I think I would be as many vents in this cabinet so the fridge work as it was meant to. I like having a good fridge because I like my meat, eggs and coffee cream and my daughter likes her cold pop. I also have a Fantastic fan in the Trillium which helps a lot in circulating air. Any suggestion here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
PS...One other thought around the fridge not working well in hot weather is maybe it needs servicing of some sort....it is 12 years old! Has anyone any experience with a Nova Kool of this age? I will check with the company next week though as they aren't too far away from where I live.

I had a small vent put in which vents to the inside of the trailer but with the Fantastic fan on I think there's enough air circulation and evacuation to keep things cool inside the cabinet. Maybe with the sun beating down on the cabinet side of the trailer it might be a problem, but again, with the fan on (and you can crack open the drawer if you're worried) you should be fine.

PS: I curse that drawer every time I open it. The good and bad of it is simply this: It really does a good job at staying closed!
