I insulated the external top and sides of the Casita’s refrigerator with Reflectix and fiberglass batt insulation today.  I also made a baffle to direct air directly over the cooling fins.  It seems to be helping.  The refrigerator temperature is now running 40 degrees below ambient temperature.

I think if I add a fan to move air over the fins faster, I may get a small additional gain.

I read on an Airstream forum that there is an additional resistor you can get from Dometic that dropped refrigerator temperature from 30 degrees below ambient to 60 for a couple of posters.  I may eventually look into that for my trailer.

And finally, FINALLY, I got the last two valances (for the small windows) sewn last night.  Tonight I’ll sew on the loops, and install them tomorrow.

I’ll take pictures when it’s done.

Ron and I are both excited about the upcoming trip.  It will feel so good to get out again!
