By "T" style, are you referring to those catches where you have a swinging piece on the door and a catch on the body you insert it into? For the convenience and other "storage" doors, I would still vote for the magnets so I don't have to mess with trying to insert the "T" into the clip. For the back door, I would be a fan of the "T" vs. magnets in that application. My force concern was simply my reason for adding the adhesive and not relying on the screws alone. All 3 of my SOB travel trailers used magnets for storage doors that didn't have the pneumatic assist.

We can make ice and keep ice from melting, but ice cream is always "soft serve" style at best. Also, would you mind posting a pic from further back from the trailer so I can get a better view? I'm sorry for all of the questions, but I really want my fridge to do what it's supposed to do and get excited with ideas that work behind the scenes, so to speak.
I did alot of research on here and other forums that alot of people were putting the fans on the outside to keep the coils cool on the outside which in turns keeps the fridge cool on the inside. I can now keep my fridge set at 5 and it is cold in the fridge but the ice cream is still soft but not like soft serve.
Here is another thread also that is discussing this also.

I created a Facebook group called the Keystone Montana 3820. I thought it would be a great place to exchange pictures and ideas that involve the 3820. Please stop by and get onboard.

Facebook? My kids have been telling me about Facegram and Instabook. They tell me it's what the hip kids are doing. Lol! Maybe my wife can access it.

I bought 2 of adjustable registers off of Amazon and I could feel a difference with just 2 so I ordered 6 more so now I have 8 adjustable registers in the Montana. It was a feel like of a 108 this weekend and I was nice and cool. When I installed the new ones I retaped the ducts as they were done sloppy. I left the original in the bathroom. Well worth the time and money.

Do you change the whole register or just the cover?

I changed out the whole register. It's only 4 screws. Make sure you re-tape the duct work as it probably is bad. There are lots of different ones on Amazon to buy. Just make sure you order the ones that are 4 3/4 opening.
It's been well over 100 fell like temps in southern Florida and it's been nice and cool inside.

Here are the pics that you wanted. Pic 1 after you pop off the vent cover remove the 4 screws. Pic 2 as you can see these are about 1 1/2" deep(Too Deep). As you can see in Pic 3 the old tape had a hole in it. Pic 4 is the silver tape that I used. Pic 5 I cut strips that were about 2 1/2" long. Pic 6 is after I put all the new tape up. From there install the new vents.
