Valterra FridgeCool Automatic Exhaust Fan for RV Refrigerators - 12 Volt - A10-2618VP

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (41 Customer Reviews)

This refrigerator exhaust fan turns on and off automatically to help keep your RV's fridge, and your camping treats, cold. Install behind your fridge to cool the coils. Override switch lets you turn off the fan when your RV is in storage.

by:

Unit is relatively easy to install. Instructions are good. I felt the wall mount bracket provided made for easy installation but on the fragile side for longevity. I fabricated two u-shaped brackets to span the inside of the vent inside the very top, which made for a very solid mounting for the fan. See enclosed pictures. I wired the switch/fan direct to 12v so it can be used as needed. The fan noise is hardly noticeable in this location and moves a great deal of air. After installation and the refrigerator on for two hours the temperature at the top of the vent measured 106 degrees without the fan. Turning the fan on reduced that temperature to 89 degrees in less than ten minutes.
My opinion of the product is that it does exactly what is advertised and is not too difficult to install. I recommend it to everyone who has a RV refrigerator which has not vent fan.


Comments
Working fine and really helps.

I was disapointed when I read the instructions. With a warning of fire hazard, I found that I had supply a 1 amp fuse and fuse holder. Why was this necessary part not included with the rest of the parts?




by:

Seems to remove accumulated hot air as promised. However if the refrigerator wall is in the sun the heat buildup overpowers the fan’s lability to remove enough hot air to make much of a difference.




by:

Install was easy and came with everything I needed and more. Plenty of options for different options for install. Not sure of performance yet, but im sure fridge will efficiency will improve.


Comments
Great! Fridge is WAY more efficient!

Improved replacement for the original that was over twenty years old!




by:

This fan has all the features I was looking for, easy install and allowed normal fridge cooling even in 100+ temps...But, it stopped working after 3 months of operation. Fortunately it has a one year warranty. Etrailer gets big kudos for a relatively painless warranty to replace. Thanks Lindsey! Hopefully the replacement lasts longer.


Comments
***the replacement worked for about another 3 months before dying. Having lost confidence in this product, I requested a refund, still within the warranty period. etrailer would not replace or refund. I then repeatedly emailed Valletta, and after a few months sent me a replacement, which lasted even less time. I ended up getting a different fan with a life expectancy of 50,000 hrs for $75.

by:

This fan increases flow of air over coils and moves the hot air from exterior fridge vent. Uses very little battery power so it is ideal for boondocking without electricity hookups. I noticed cooler fridge temperature when used.




by:

The fan made a big difference in maintaining the refrigerator temperature during hot weather. The installation instructions were well write and easy to follow. I am happy with the product and have recommended it to my friends.




by:

This was a simple install and so far has produced good results. My refrigerator was not cooling efficiently and after some online research, I decided to purchase a fan for inside the back side of the fridge. There are many out there that mount in different places and, in fact, this one has the option and hardware to mount in 3 different places. I chose to mount it up top near the rooftop fridge vent. My reasoning was it would pull the air through the lower vent up over the coils and out the vent. Well, it works. It runs periodically as long as the switch is on. The thermostat seems to function properly as it doesn't run all the time, just on occasion. It is also NOT loud at all. I can hear it if I listen closely to the fridge, but it's not annoying or any bother. If during the summer, it seems to stay on all the time, I may install a second fan at the bottom inside the lower intake. This would be just to help pull more air in and relieve some of the workload on the top fan.




by:

i haven't installed this yet but i've used one before and i did like the results. i believe that this fan along with an internal frigdge fan enhanced the cooling ability. 110 degrees in the sun made me go this route and i'm doing it again with a recently purchased motor home.


Comments
The combo of internal fridge fan and external valterra fan make for an evenly cooled refridgerator. I would highly recommend it for any type of rv

I put this fan in and my RV Refrigerator works great now now on hot days. Helps to keep refrigerator cold even when it 90 degree +. Put fan at top of vent dropped wires down to bottom of frig and all wiring hooks were right there. The 1 AMP fuse link was hard to find, on & off switch was a little tricky. But everything works like a champ. Great product. Got a second one for my sons Rv.
Thanks etrailer.




by:

I received the fan, shipping container was good, i installed it just under my roof vent now i will have to wait and go camping to see how it works.


Comments
The fan is shot, it keeps blowing fuses, it needs to be replaced. At the moment it is 111 degrees, my frig cannot keep up, I need a new fan.

Our travel trailer refrigerator was struggling to hold temperature this summer in Georgia. Would get to about 50 deg. I installed this fan and the refrigerator reached 38 deg. The next morning. Have to use a lower setting it's working so we'll. Definitely recommend this product. Well made and uses very little battery power. Very quiet when running.




by:

The fan was easy to install . Everything you need comes with it . Took about 20 minutes, works fine and is quiet. Installed in a slide out camper , top vent helps by drawing out hot air to keep fridge cooler . I recommend this product to all RV OWNERS




by:

Easy install. This will the third one of these fans I have used. They have every thing you need to improve refrigerator efficiency on hot days. Great product!




by:

Kit is very complete, and fairly simple to install (with moderate DIY skills). It moves a lot of air. A buddy had one, and made a huge difference in the summer temperatures, making the fridge a LOT more efficient. Looking forward to camping this summer to get the full effect.




by:

These fans are a little large to the back of a refrigerator. I was able to get one in and hooked it up without a switch. It has a heat sensor and should come on automatically. I'll find out how well it works on our next trip.




by:

Perfect fit, easy to install, all is good and up and running.

Great products, great service.

Thanks etrailer




by:

Great Has been running on one D-cell battery for at least 6 weeks total run time.




by:

Not sure if it’s going to work it’s not the same size as the one that we took out.




by:

Works great. Always trust the quality of products we get from etrailer.




by:

Unit works very well and made a big improvement in the cooling of my refrigerator on hot days.




by:

Product came fast and was all I expected. Installation was simple and works as advertised. A summer season will be the true test. I have faith.




by:

Quick service not yet installed but hoping for a colder refrigerator.




by:

It helps but when it’s 100 def here in Texas
The temp still goes too high

I’m considering putting in a second fan

The quality is top notch

  • Can the Valterra FridgeCool Exhause Fan Be Wired Directly To 12V? Does it have a Thermostat?
    I reached out to my contact at Valterra to get some information for you. This Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fan, # A10-2618VP, can be hard wired into any 12 V system or you can use the switch included. The switch is only to turn off the fan for storage of the trailer. With the switch in the on position or bypassing the switch, this exhaust fan has an integrated thermostat that kicks the fan on when the temperature reaches 100 degrees and will kick back off at 80 degrees.

  • Can Two Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fans be Ran off One Switch
    Yes, if you wanted to power two of the Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fans # A10-2618VP off one switch you could easily do it by wiring both of the wires of each fan to one switch.

  • Current Draw and Noise Level of Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fan
    I spoke with my contact at Valterra regarding the FridgeCool Exhaust Fan # A10-2618VP referenced in your question. The fan is going to draw 49.8 mA at 12 volts. They do not have a specific decibel level listed for the sound ouput when running, but my contact did state that the noise level is quite low. Basically, you will likely be able to hear it, but it is not going to be anything that overpowers other surrounding noises like a speaking voice or TV. The fan itself measures 4-1/4 inches...

  • Does Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fan # A10-2618VP Make Noise
    Since your concern for the Valterra FridgeCool Exhaust Fan # A10-2618VP is volume I was able to find a video of it in use on YouTube and you there was no audible noise that was heard. The fan only moves 12.5 CFM so it's pretty slow and would not be something you'd hear. Your fridge would be louder.

  • What is the Size of the Everchill 324-000111
    You're correct that the 31-1/4" measurement includes the cap over the hinge at the top of the # 324-000111, so it's going to be a tight squeeze; you could do without the cover, but I'm not sure how much it would help since there will be a hinge bolt sitting below it that still might get in the way. If you can't make that one fit, the next size down would be the Everchill # 324-000110 which is 19-1/2" tall. You will want some sort of fan or vent for a refrigerator if you don't already...
