Residential refrigerator

I have a 34P Windsport with the residential refrigerator and found there is
no vent on the rear of the cabinet, I cut a 3.5 hole in the pantry side to let
the heat out from behind the frig. that helped but was wondering about a
roof vent.

I would think that if you could just give the pantry a chance to "breathe": you shouldn't need to vent through the roof.

I think most residential fridges vent from the bottom. No need to add more. Cant hurt I guess but not needed to function.

Vent

The instruction say that there should be 1 inch on both sides. there is only about 1/2 inch and the top has none. the bottom is blocked also. when I put the hole in the pantry the temp in it runs in the 90's now. I have warranty on the RV but would need to remove windshield to replace the refrigerator if it failed.

Can you "vent" the pantry door?
A cleanly-cut opening wouldn't need to be too large or noticeable...
(We have our home refrigerator venting into the cabinetry above it, and then we just leave a door ajar... You couldn't do that with a moving vehicle, but the principle could still be applied.)

vent

Thanks we are thinking alike as that is what I do now.I think the more air flow around the frig is beneficial. I was just trying to let the heat out of the RV as the pantry gets warm enough with the door open some.
