    I've been rebuilding the cupboards and have done a test drive on 170km of corrugations.
    Too much dust inside.
    The original vents were for a 3 way fridge and the upper vent was for the gas.
    I now have a 12/240v fridge and am wondering how many vents I need. If I don't need both I think I would keep the upper as it should be away from the dust from the front wheel. If I don't need either that would be a bonus.
    Your thoughts?

    I would get rid of both but remember that fridge needs good vertical airflow for any radiating surfaces.

    Make some dust proof covers, to seal the vents whilst in motion? :rolleyes:

    I might block the bottom and see how I go.
    Only gap on the fridge is on the base. So hopefully cool air under and out the top vent.

    If they are easily removed covers, just seal them up whilst driving, and remove them when stationary perhaps?

    TRAKKA conversions included a 110 litre 12vdc frig, never vented it externally.
