Dometic Auto Temp Fridge question
I just noticed something with my Dometic DM2862 fridge while I was loading up today for the Memorial Day trip were about to take.
My wife purchased a basic thermostate for the fridge today so this is the first day using it. The issue I'm needing feedback on is that the fridge is only hitting 50F. This is also the first time we noticed there was a temp issue, as we never really noticed prior to using a thermostat. To be fair, we have only camped 3 times this year and we never owned a TT before.
When I connect power from my house to the TT, I have to use a 15' extension cord and it goes to the 1' 120watt to 30amp conversion plug, which then connects to the 30amp shore cord from the TT.
I know I'm fishing here, but is using the extension cord the problem perhaps? Causing a dip in power?? I don't know if that could be an issue.
The DM2862 uses that stupid slider for temp adjust and its connected to the little plastic sleve that attaches to the metal fins in the fridge. its set up properly, but could there be any additional issues that I could check w/o having to take it in for service?
