RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

Interesting claim... "Most RV owners are installing this type of fire stopping protection behind the Norcold 1200 series refrigerators, due to the very high fire risk of the OEM cooling units till they have the Amish built cooling unit installed. http://rvcoolingunit.com/SS-30-Halon-Extinguisher-Straight-Auto-Deploy-P1872263.aspx

RE: Honda EU2000i Generator Shop Notebook

http://bit.ly/2R9l1f3 One update: After doing Blackstone analysis I go for 100 hrs between changes. Generators are not hard on synthetic oil and it is always pretty clean at 100 hrs even when run in the desert.

RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

After researching through the ARP directions, I lowered the temperature to which the blower comes on. I think it was defaulted at 125 and I lowered it down 1 setting. Now the fan comes on more often especially during cooler weather. Good idea. I decided to try this. Please see post above.

Added a new section: "Changing the ventilation blowers temperature" This has the exact key sequence to use. http://bit.ly/2Qyw9Ac

RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

The Green wire connects to the supplying ground wire that was connected to the refrigerator control board labled "Gnd". Question: What happens to that open connector spot on the refrigerator control board where that ground wire used to be connected?? do you leave it empty or do you twist in another wire and connect it together with the green wire? :h The refrigerator control board still needs a ground to operate. So that ground is left alone and another ground is connected to the ARP controller. This is shown on the "system map" on the previous page.

RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

The black wires have a a clip that is connected to the fins in the fridge. Any place that is grounded will work as the ground is the same anyplace. “Wire the blower by grounding it to the fridge internal light. Do not ground the blower to the cooling fins, this will result in corrosion of the cooling unit and premature failure.” - ARP https://www.arprv.com/rv-fix-fridge-circulation-fan.php#about Given the very low current of the two blowers (less than 1/10 amp), this corrosion may be limited and/or take a long time to develop.

RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

I've been boondocking in cool temperatures and the blower circuit has not been coming on, so the fridge circulation blowers are off. This affects propane use, so I lashed up a very simple option to control the circulation blowers from the fridge controller. It is working well. See "OWNER OPTION: Operating the fridge circulation blowers from the fridge controller {OR} the Fridge Defend controller" http://bit.ly/2Qyw9Ac
