My Motorhome: A Caravan of all things !!

Well I bought a computer cooling fan off eBay for about a fiver, plus an illuminated switch. Those two combined with a bit of wire, a fuse, 4 zip ties and about an hour of my time does the job for me!
I am more than happy that I have done a decent job (at least four times now) for an awful lot less than Dometic wanted for a cooling kit. My system (fixed to the top vent) does exactly what I want it to do. It sucks hot air out of the fridge space, it is in a different location to that recommended by Dometic but, in hot weather, it makes my fridge a lot more efficient than it was without the fan.
I am certainly not worried about anything my insurance company MIGHT say. People fit electrical “extras” to their vehicles all the time!!
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
