Video Transcript for Review of Valterra RV Kitchen - Refrigerator - Housewares - A10-2618VP

Michael: Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the Valterra FridgeCool automatic exhaust fan for your RV refrigerators. This is a pretty straight forward device. It's going to mount near your coils on your refrigerator, help direct air from those coils to your exhaust vent so that your hot air will be blowing out of your RV and it'll help make your refrigerator more efficient. The fan can install in several different locations, either on the coils themselves, near the vent, on the wall, on the floor. You've got several different options to suit your needs.This is an automatic activated fan, so it's going to turn on when the temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit and it's going to turn off when it reaches 80 degrees.

Now it's not 100 degrees in my studio here so I can't really show you the fan working, but it will turn on automatically. You're not going to have to turn it on and off or worry about that.They do include the override switch, and this is not for those everyday situations. That's what the temperature sensor is going to control. This is for when you have your RV in storage so that the fan's not kicking on when it doesn't need to be. This switch is going to be integral to the installation.

You'll run your power from the fan to the switch and that's where you'll hook up your 12 volt power feed so that it's flowing through when you want it to be on and you can turn it off when you don't need it. The fan is boasted to have a quiet operation, so you're not going to notice the noise, it's not going to be a deterrent for you.The fan is a four and a quarter inch diameter. You can see there. It's right about three inches tall. Our switch is right about, I'd call it about three quarters of an inch by about an inch and a quarter.

You also have this plate here that you can use to mount it or if you already have something to mount the switch onto, you can do that as well. The total depth of our switch is right about an inch and a quarter as well. The amp draw for the fan is going to be 49.8 milliamps at 12 volts and it's going to have an air flow of 12.5 cubic feet per minute.Now when I said, "It came out in different positions," like I said, "There's different mounting options for you." They've included all the hardware that you're going to need to get it mounted in whatever position that works best for you. You've got the mounting brackets, the plastic bracket here to mount it to the wall, as well as the screws and nuts that you're going to need depending on which option you choose.If you want to mount it to the vent itself, you'll just twist these edges, the wings here, into the caulking that seals your vent to the top of your refrigerator. It'll allow the air to blow up through your exhaust vent.

If you want to mount it to the back of your fridge, you can secure it to the fans coils using these brackets here. You'll just loop them around past your bolt through there and get it mounted onto the coils.If you want to mount it onto the floor, you'll use these same brackets. Just create a loop to secure one into the floor, and then the top end of the loop will secure it to the wings. If you want to mount it on the wall, that's where this bracket comes in. It's going to fit on the fan like that and you can mount it so that all sit next to the wall. It's going to be very easy to get it installed.As far as the wiring goes, as I said, "You'll run your red wire to your switch and then connect your 12 volt to the other side of the switch. Your black wire is going to go to your ground." It's going to be worked off of 12 volt power, so you want to make sure that you've got your switch on anytime you want this to turn on automatically. This does come with a one year warranty from Valterra.That's going to complete our look at the Valterra FridgeCool automatic exhaust fan for your RV refrigerators.

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.

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 691667

Just received the fan today. Hooked to 12vdc to try it. Good flow and quiet. Haven't installed it yet into my project. but suspect it"ll meet my needs. 410179

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. 644502

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! 588782

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. 649932

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. 321650

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 265693



- A10-2618VP
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. 662677

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. 548613

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. 719621
