Dometic Temp control

I have just about given up on the Dometic refrigerator we have in our 2011 Berkshire. We have had it for 3 years and we full time. The fridge is a 4 door sorry I don't have the model number. The fridge is also in a slide so we have two fans moving air across the coils. The fridge has never worked great but was ok. It seems like lately because we full time it is struggling to keep temps below 40. We have one fan inside the fridge and plan to add a second one. I also bought a dorm size fridge to keep all water and beer in that we keep outside.
All that said have I missed a quick fix?
We have decided that we must do something before we both die from food poison. Throwing away two beautiful steaks tonight was the last straw. so as I see it I can tear this out and put in a residential fridge but it would take a lot of wood work and adding a larger inverter. The cost goes up very fast doing all that. I also have talked to a few folks that have done the Amish mod on there existing fridge. As far as I can tell option 1 replacing the fridge would cost around 4000$.
Option 2 doing the Amish mod runs around 1700$. I'm looking for input into what is the best way and what if any other options are available?
