Last year we had some concerns about the fridge on very hot days and did some performance upgrades including adding a interior fan, a second exterior fan and adding a ambient temperature switch so that the exterior fans start to run sooner. The fridge performance is now very good. we suggest that anyone with concerns of poor cooling, excess condensation or noisy fans go to the "RV Cooling Unit Warehouse" website and check the items listed under Performance parts they give great service and sound advice

I too have the same problem as the OP. Although Dometic fridge. I'm running 4 group 24 batts, and a 100w panel. Only use the trailer on the weekends, was hoping it would last for the week while we are not there. But alas, every weekend, the fridge has shut off at some time during the week. Sometimes it seems like thurs, sometimes earlier. Looking for a solution...

1 100w panel on the BEST day will only charge at a rate of 5.56 amps to the battery (ies) per hour. 1 32Ē flat screen TV uses 3-4 amps.
It will charge your batteries, but it will take a looooong time, especially if you have any load at all. Doesnít take much to draw more than 5.56 amps.

After doing some research, I think I'm going to add some solar powered fans to the fridge, and hopefully reduce the fridge draw, and add another 100w panel

I just installed the outside fan kit on our Dometic 8cf, can't remember the model number. It has definitely helped keep the reefer colder on these 100* days here in Caldwell Idaho. It seems expensive when you only consider the parts involved. But getting it all as a kit sure made the install easier. Note: I could not use the round clamps because I have a steel chimney baffle on my GD. Instead I zip tied the 2 fans inside the lower portion, blowing upward.

I also ordered the inside 3 fan device but haven't had time to install it yet. Moving the inside air will also help.
