Not good news. 94 degrees in the chase, 50 degrees in the fridge.

Switched to gas, 101 in chase and fridge dropped two degrees in hour. Full sun.

I pointed a fan at it, and it helped, brought my temperature down to 39 degrees. It was a clip on, then had the dealer install a permanent one and now my temperature won't go below 46 degrees. That though, is a whole different story.

Took the inside thermosistor off its mount and stick it in a piece of pipe insulation and zip tied both ends. Hoping for low temp in the morning.

Which is better, powering fan and digital temp switch off 12 volt or 120 volt.
I understand that powering it by 120 volt the fan/switch will only run while RV is plugged in. If powered by 12 volt it will cycle all the time, even while traveling.

Maybe it's the thermistor that's bad?

I'm not sure what symptoms they show when they go bad. Anyone else know?

There's supposed to be a resistance value to check it with a meter.
