I have the double door domestic fridge in my Cougar 367FLS. My fridge is in a slide. Mine did not cool to my satisfaction in the summer heat last year. I have learned that there is just a lot of heat. Some of the things I learned from this forum was I added two fans in top of vent to help with air movement. Also in very hot climate or all day direct sunlight I will add 2 little portable fans in bottom vent blowing up to top vent. It then has a total of 4 extra fans moving air along with the two that is already mounted on back of fridge. Just got back from Pigeon Forge Sunday, high heat, sun on slide all day. According to digital readout on fridge. Early morning 33 degrees late afternoon 35-37 degrees. If I could do anything different, wished the fans that factory installed run more. Seems like the heat has to build to much before they start running. Don’t know if this answered your question but this has been my experience.

First thing to look at is the center flap. Common for it to not “make the turn” and seal.
