Out of interest is the compressor as one unit with your fridge or as extra equipment under a bunk?

Dave, if you take a look at this thread about how the 341/342 was built you will understand from the pictures that you don't just remove the fridge.

My compressor is under the starboard bunk, as a separate unit.

"Bynnos" showed me last summer that we still got condensation on the wall behind the sofa towards the fridge so I will buy this to improve the ventilation.

Thanks Samuel. You've saved me a pile of money. We just stick a fender under the bed during the day from time to time so air can circulate.
Suggest a small spacer, such as a length of pipe, be put behind the 'fridge' cushion overnight or when not in use to similarly allow air circulation.

Hijackers, what about starting a new thread on subject "ventilations" so that we could gather together different working solutions to improve comfort onboard....

Don't know what you're thinking. Not hijacking. The posts are related to your Own post by advising you that you may be wasting your money on something that may not work and, that natural air circulation can be the best way of alleviating local condensation.

But that is ventilation on 461/470's, not on these other models. Talking of other models, my 301 does not seem to have a the problem of the fridge causing condensation problems at the back of the seat cushions, the must have figured out how to solve it....

Hi Skipper

What did you do to insulate the Lid/hatch?

I have measured my fridge and it looks like it has 2 cm insulation build in the glassfiber.
Have anyone drilled a hole in the box, that can confirm that?

2 parts pu foam, for detaljs please ser the First page of this post. Over the years and yacht models could the insulation (or lack of it) be very different. I can only describe our yacht model.
