If you have spent enough time very thoroughly designing/planning your layout, right down to the finite mm. then, for me at least, just as soon as you have cut the first window aperture, then for me at least, the knees stopped knocking!

I agree completely.

I approached the first window with more than a little trepidation "oh oh, there's no turning back now...". :eek:

As it turned out it when really smoothly and probably less than an hour later I was taking photos of my new window and patting myself on the back. From there I went on to do the toilet cassette door and the second window which of course also all went smoothly.

And with that all behind me, it's all just "house fitting" ;)

I'd have agreed to this if it is only used in the UK. On some of our European trips the fridge did struggle and spent too much time on. Fitting vents and then later a fan solved this.
external vents?
but anyway, you are talking about improving efficiency by adding vents. You don't improve efficiency by adding vents to a gas fridge, you stop it killing you - a slight difference.

Yes I forgot you need to exhaust the combustion gases outside. Though even on an absorption fridge the cooler you can get the radiator the better it works.

The combustion exhaust and the heater/cooling should be vented through different vents when absorption fridges are fitted.

It is not uncommon for blanking plates to be fitted to the cooling vents during winter and some people do indeed fit additional cooling fans to increase the airflow across the cooling fins during summer.

But of course, your right that in all cases the combustion air vent should always remain clear.

My wife has never felt comfortable with the gas fridge on during the night which is why I'll be fitting a compressor fridge in the conversion.
