Charlie; I'm thinking about that too. My unit doesn't have a usb charger
on it but I have other 12V and 220V plugs nearby, maybe I can use them for an additional fan. But what about the timing, do you turn it on when needed or is it somehow connected with the existing fan so it starts whenever the original one starts? You mentioned that after 38'C you turned it on; you keep it on manually for how long? Until things get settled or...?
Cheechako; maybe it's the best solution!
MarkJ; my unit's tiny fans failed 3 times since I've bought the unit. And yes it is very small. Especially in Aegean summer where the boat's interior
is never below 30'C during the day and 25'C during the night (when Meltemi stops blowing), that little thing really struggles to cool the compressor. I'm not sure if I can cut the side but I will try to squeeze a bigger fan to the existing space hoping that a bigger fan won't have a thicker frame. Is it okay that a bigger fan draws more amps form the unit? Does the system accept that modification?
As you suggested, I will put it to -9 to see if it will work more comfortably and check the thermostat. Thank you for that. You put the foam inside the freezer
, yes? Or did I misunderstand...?
