They are designed to only be fitted if you use your fridge when the ambient temperature is low (I think around 5įC.
The reason being that if you donít fit them the fridge gets too efficient and freezes everything inside! (Which I can confirm does happen)
I have never ever fitted them for storage etc. My MH and now caravans have all been subjected the prevailing weather on the same side as the fridge vents. In even the worst storms rainwater has never got into the void behind them. By all means fit them for storage if you want to, but if your MH is in a storage compound be aware they are items that can very easily be removed by someone else. Possibly because of the ridiculously high cost of them.
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
