Actually 40F is not perfect. It's the top end of safe food storage temps.
Mid 30s is better.
While these new dometic fridges are not adjustable you can purchase an
adjustable thermister on Ebay.

Be sure you order the one for your model refer.
My fridge would never go below 40F until I installed this adjustable thermister. First night's test it went down to 28F in the fresh food side.
Fridge was empty -- just a test.
After nudging it up over a 3 day span I've got it cooling to mid 30s.
I assume the freezer compartment will also be slightly colder but have not
put a thermometer in there to test.
It's literally a 10 minute install.
Be sure and shut off all power to the fridge.
You want the interior to be very dry so it's helpful if the unit is off and warm inside.
Cut the tip off the old thermister
Cut the wire on the new adjustable thermister- it comes very long.
Splice on the new one using your own butt splices or the supplied tiny wire nuts.
Peel off the sticky back of the new adjustable thermister and stick to the
wall near the cooling fins.
Use a piece of clear packing tape to secure the wire to the wall neatly out
of the way.
Re-power the unit and give it a test run.
