Heat

Okay, the vents are done, finally! I am speaking of the two fantastic vents and the bathroom vent. Next up … looking over the long list … we’ll see when the morning comes.

I think one of the things I want to do is pull the refrigerator vent off and see if I can get some more air moving through that space. Oddly, I have all my electronics, both DC and AC, located right above the refrigerator and that area gets really warm during hot days. Hot electronics is not good electronics. I’m going to look that area over and see if I can do anything with it. I would think that the most heat from the refrigerator is created at the back of the refrigerator and the top part of the refrigerator could be isolated from the back, but I don’t know if that’s the case, I’ll have to look in that space and see. Also, with all the wiring in that area, it may not be possible to isolate the top from the back. However, I do know, that fuse and breaker boxes shouldn’t be getting that warm. Heat and electronics is not a good match.

After a little research, I see that the top and back of an RV refrigerator definitely should be isolated, and I’m betting my is not. As a matter of fact, my research shows that even from the factory, they’re not properly installed to vent correctly. Looks like a really tough area to get to, in order to even see, must less work on. OK, maybe this can be my next RV project. Oh, the fun of RVs!

The thing that cause me to discover this was I had a fuse blow for my living room lights (DC), and while changing that out, I noticed it was awful warm in the area of the fuse panel. This was at 10pm in the evening, and it was still warm, the next morning it was nice and cool, so it needs to be insulated, vented or both. Not sure till I can get at it to see.

Note: The heat could possibly be coming from the roof area over the fuse/breaker area and not so much from the refrigerator, just not sure till I look.

This is Sunday and my mind is working, but the body is in a chill mode (as in lazy). I did do some shopping, but that is about it for today.

Hope everyone’s weekend was great.
