Good morning. I have a problem with the insulation standing up into the port area. Is it possible to fix this somehow? Thank you

I use R11/R13 and it doesn't overlap the port on a one Pi cabinet. It just lines the interior walls, specifically the rear, bottom and side nearest to the port. You kind of have to "tuck in" the side and bottom sheets beside the port.

Is that what is happening in your situation? Are you using sheets of fiberglass insulation or something else?

It is tucked in but seems really fluffy and thus sticks up into the port area. I built these forever ago and it's always been this way. Thanks for the help.

If it's just bulging where it meets the port, it's fine. That's to be expected.
