appliances in slideout

For you guys that have fridge, range, or other appliances in the slide out.
How are they holding up for you? I'm curious how the in and out has affected the LP lines etc. Also, how do your fridges perform sitting in that slide out. I know they have to vent out the side wall instead of up thru the roof.
Any problems, or have they got it perfected now?

I have had no problems at all with mine. I did add a thermostat and 3 computer muffin cooling fans at the top of the refrigerator fins, but I would have done the same if the refrigerator vented out the roof.

My 2006 CF29CK has done very well. I too questioned the weight of the appliances on the slide and the constant movement to the propane lines. So far I have experienced no problems what so ever! However the performance of my fridge is marginal. I have researched this and determined the venting is less on the cooling fins like other posters have said. There are easy fixes for this like the muffin fans but I have just never taken the time to do it. Fridge works well enough so we don't lose our food and the freezer works very well. If I could channel some of the freezer temperature into the lower compartment it would be great!! So overall, don't be afraid of any units with appliances in the slide out.

No problems here. We have the BAL cable system and it can be a little slow but no kind of hesitation. They put 2 vents on the side of the slide for the frig. The salesman said the bottom one was for the frig part and the top one for the freezer part. We do keep the awning out over the slide even if it is just enough to cover the slide itself to help keep it cooler.

No Problems with my 05 PP in regards to the elect or gas in the transition from trailer to slide. I have also had no problems with operation of the fridge because of the two side vents (one top and the other bottom) although if you feel the fridge compartment you can get one of the fans they sell on the market. I have not had to use one.

You need a new salesman, he's clueless. The bottom is the air intake and the top is the outlet. Think about it...

And we have had zero problems with ours.

Clif that is does make more sense. This is our first trailer so we didn't know either. We have had to learn a lot on our own and I have learned even more here.
